  • Ultra-mobile transmitter mast for temporary mobile communications coverage on company premises, large construction sites or events
  • Now even more flexibility and capacity thanks to sector antenna and more frequencies
  • Use of compact container solution also planned for UEFA EURO 2024™

Big stage, compact technology: Deutsche Telekom is presenting the new “mobile mast-to-go” to an international audience for the first time at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. The ultra-mobile mast brings mobile communications quickly to wherever it is needed at short notice: On company premises or major events, but also in disaster areas. The mobile radio mast-to-go is significantly smaller and lighter than previous solutions. A further developed version with new technology now provides even more flexible mobile radio coverage and higher capacities.

Sector antennas for more targeted mobile radio coverage

The new version of the mobile mast-to-go presented at the MWC is characterised by a sectorised antenna. Unlike the previously used omnidirectional antenna, the sectorised antenna with up to three sectors makes it possible to illuminate specific areas in a more targeted manner to ensure improved mobile phone coverage. The sectorised antenna can then radiate its signal not just in a circle, but directly in the desired direction. In addition, the three sectors provide more mobile radio capacity overall – thanks to up to three available frequency ranges. This is particularly important in deployment scenarios such as festivals or large events with lots of people in order to ensure smooth, high-performance mobile radio coverage. The ultra-mobile mobile radio solution supports both 5G and LTE and allows the antennas to be extended up to a height of eight metres.

More frequencies – more deployment scenarios

With the new antenna technology, more mobile radio frequencies can now be utilised. The first version of the compact transmitter mast previously enabled LTE and 5G via frequencies in the 2.6 and 3.6 gigahertz range. The antennas of the new version now also transmit at 1.8 and 2.1 gigahertz as well as on the exclusive 5G frequencies in the 3.7 gigahertz range. These so-called “industrial frequencies” are allocated by the Federal Network Agency and are used in campus networks of business customers – for example for machine data traffic in networked production. This means that the latest version of the micro-container can be integrated even better into such private 5G networks.

Compact helper: mobile communications from the Micro-Container

The same applies to the latest version: the entire mobile radio transmission technology fits into a compact micro-container (length: 1.6 metres, width: 2 metres, height: 2.6 metres), which makes it easier to transport and set up. The mast can be set up by one person in less than an hour and made ready for immediate use. Compared to a standard container, the mobile phone mast-to-go is only a third of the weight and requires significantly less space. The micro-container can be connected to a local power supply or operated using any other mobile power source. Connection to the data network is possible via fibre optics or radio relay. A connection via satellite can also be realised depending on the intended use.

5G for football fans: use at the UEFA EURO 2024

The next major appearance of the mobile communications mast-to-go in front of an international audience will follow in summer 2024: during the European Football Championship in Germany, Deutsche Telekom will use the flexible mobile communications solution to ensure additional coverage at fan locations and guarantee the best possible customer experience. As the official telecommunications partner of UEFA EURO 2024, Deutsche Telekom will ensure the best network – especially in all stadiums, fan miles and team quarters. Telekom is optimising its mobile network for football fans at a total of 430 locations. To this end, it is relying on temporary solutions such as mobile mast-to-go, but is also expanding capacity at existing locations or building new ones. As a result of these measures, Telekom is strengthening more than 13,000 cells in the mobile network.

Practical tests: companies utilise the advantages of mobile mast-to-go

Following initial successful practical tests at festivals and major events, Deutsche Telekom offered a free prototype test for business customers. Around a dozen customers have already benefited or are currently benefiting from the advantages of this innovation “made by Telekom”. These include Implenia, a leading Swiss construction and property service provider: the company supplies a bridge construction site in the valley with 5G and 4G/LTE. flaschenpost SE, a food and beverage delivery service from Münster, is also among the testers. It is using the additional 5G coverage within a logistics hall to digitalise and speed up its operational processes.

Following the success of the tests to date and the high demand, Deutsche Telekom is already offering the ultra-mobile transmission mast commercially. Interested business customers can contact for more information or speak to the experts at the Deutsche Telekom stand at the Mobile World Congress.
