The Ripple Effect: Impacts of Antenna Selection on the Stages of a New Wireless Tower Build

John Keating, P.E., EVP of Market Operations
Centerline Solutions

Every decision has consequences. Like ripples in the surface of a pond that travel outward, each choice influences everything that comes afterward. These ripples intersect with those created by other decisions, forming new patterns in the process. Standing on the shore of a pond and watching the waterís surface probably isnít the first thing that comes to mind when you think of wireless tower projects, but itís an apt metaphor for the way antenna-related decisions throughout a tower project impact how the process unfolds and reshapes the next phase of the project.

Selective Deposition of Silver Layers via Jet Metal Technology for the Production of Antennas

Koen Staelens, Business Development Manager
Jet Metal Technology

Since the start of the company in 2007, Jet Metal Technologies focused its efforts to place its unique in-line metallization technology by spraying on the market for decorative applications in cosmetic and spirit bottle applications. In such decorative applications a layer stack consisting of a base coat varnish (15-20 Ķm), a thin silver layer (~80 nm) and a protective top coat varnish (15-20 Ķm) is used. The many advantages of the Jet metal technology led to great success as nearly 20 industrial lines in Europe and North & Middle America were installed and produce annually millions of metallized spirit bottles, scent bottles and caps for big players like Coty, Hennessy, LíOrťal, Louis Vuitton, Procter and Gamble and Pernod-Ricard.
