The role of small cells is growing due to the densification of networks needed for 5G. But small cells can lead to big problems.

There are several critical factors involved in achieving swift zoning and planning approval for small cell deployments. In this webinar (register here), Dr. Jonathan L. Kramer, Senior Partner, Telecom Law Firm, US (TLF) will share his respected insights into the following core questions:

  • Why do local governments care about camouflaging wireless sites?
  • What feedback do residents share about small cell deployments in their areas?
  • What special considerations are there for installing a small cell in a public right-of-way?
  • How can the permitting process be streamlined for small cells?

Dr. Kramer has advised thousands of governments and landlords on deployment law, technology, and planning issues. He’s been an expert witness/trial advisor in 40+ telecom cases. As local government planning advisors, TLF has processed thousands of cell site applications, including macro cells, small cells, 6409(a) projects, generators, and unpermitted expansions/installations.
