Small Cells – Acquisition, Design & Installation

small_cells_photoSitec have launched a small cells division in order to deal with the future demand for 4G.

Small Cells include femtocells, picocells and microcells and are deployed in a wide range of areas from residential installations, to urban locations in order to improve and maintain mobile telecommunication coverage and capacity in areas where macrocell base stations may require support to maintain network strength.

David Hawthorne Sitec’s Acquisition Director commented, “Small cells are going to play a crucial role in delivering fast 4G services to the mobile networks and the depth of experience we have in this sector will prove invaluable”

Pedal power helps Sitec raise £1000

sitec-london-to-cambridgeA great effort from the Sitec team who completed the 60 mile London to Cambridge bike ride on Sunday 22nd July. We were somewhat saddle sore but in good spirits throughout, despite parts of Essex and Herts being more hilly than expected.

The atmosphere was fantastic from start to finish at Midsummer Common in Cambridge. We have raised more than £1,000 for Breakthrough Breastcancer so well done to all who took part, helped out in the support vehicle and donated to Sitec’s Just Giving page.

A job well done.

Sitec new office

orange_building_7200Sitec have signed a new 5 year lease for larger premises on the Cambridge Research Park.   Sitec Director David Hawthorne commented “The Research Park has provided an excellent base here for the last few years, so having out-grown our current offices we are very pleased to expand our operations to the new larger premises on the same site”.

The 112 acre Park tranferred ownership from SEGRO to Mountgrange in 2011 and reverted to its original name ‘Cambridge Research Park’ from the more recent ‘IQ Cambridge’.    The move is due to be completed in the next few weeks in a seamless transition for staff and clients alike.

Sitec Offices Survive the Storms!

rainbow_picThe Sitec offices witnessed the high winds and treacherous weather over the past few days at the Cambridge Research Park.

Thankfully inbetween the wind and rain, Chris and some of the team had time for a lunchtime stroll around the park and he was just in the right place at the right time to take this beautiful photograph above Building 7200.

They tried to find the gold at the end of rainbow, but unfortunately ran out of time and had to come back to work! Better luck next time guys!
