Cellnex helps governments to use intelligent and innovative solutions, enabling them to work more efficiently and safely.

Above all, Cellnex’s extensive infrastructure enables governments to provide better public service.

Data centres (Edge Data centre)

Continuity, security and sustainability are the essential requirements of governments for their data centres. After all, citizens are processing more and more requests online, so service delivery must be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Governments are also required to comply with strict legislative and privacy requirements, including the GDPR. In order to avoid data leaks, data must be protected with the utmost care.

Eventually, Cellnex will own and operate with nexLoop more than 180 data centres throughout France to host all types of sensitive data and applications. Thanks to its geographical coverage, nexLoop provides a neutral hosting solution that is close to the citizens thanks to a network and density never before deployed in France.

The deployment of new Edges Data Centers allows to accompany the growth of services around big data, artificial intelligence, security, etc. The introduction of low latency 5G services now offers new opportunities for development and services to citizens. 

This new generation of Data Center brings together the production and consumption zones of the data necessary for the development of low-latency services as well as the services of the city of the future and the generalisation of the Internet of Things (smart city, smart building, industry 4.0).

Distributed Antenna System (DAS): mobile coverage in government buildings

It is essential that employees and visitors to government buildings have access to reliable connectivity. In today’s digital age, mobile connectivity is no longer a desire but a necessity.

However, 80% of mobile traffic starts or ends in spaces so well isolated that they are virtually impenetrable for mobile signals. The solution is DAS: an internal signal and antenna distribution network, which greatly improves coverage inside buildings.

A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is an array of spatially distributed antennas that are connected to a shared base station. RF signals from different mobile operators to and from the base station are combined and then distributed by a multiple antenna system, allowing wireless services to be offered in a specific geographical area.

By improving mobile coverage inside government buildings and public areas, productivity and employee and citizen satisfaction will increase. The digital transformation makes reliable mobile connectivity even more essential. Visitors’ perception of the attractiveness of locations increases significantly when reliable mobile coverage is available.

Fibre Connectivity

The digital transformation, protection and security of data are prerogatives at the heart of the challenges facing both central and local administrations.

The issues of information, citizen approaches, security and education are developing through the implementation of robust and resilient data networks. Fibre is therefore essential in the construction of public digital services.  

In 2020, Bouygues Telecom and Cellnex Telecom have formed a strategic partnership representing an investment of more than €1 billion that will use nexLoop to deploy a national fibre optic network. 

This strategic partnership opens up major prospects, thanks to this high-performance fibre optic infrastructure; it will accelerate the deployment of fixed and 5G broadband services. 

In total, more than 31,000 km of optical fibre will be deployed, including more than 15,000 km of metropolitan loops covering the 100 largest French conurbations, in order to provide local authorities and administrations with access to optical fibre to support them in their digital and digital transformation.

Smart Cities

Almost every city or municipality has a vision for smart cities. The aim is to deploy smart solutions to improve quality of life, sustainability, accessibility, well-being and economic development in urban areas. 

The priorities and opportunities are different from one another, but all initiatives have common features: use of digitisation, technical innovation and data.

The Cellnex telecommunications infrastructure supports the next generation networks that make these smart city applications possible.

Therefore, it is also possible to share and develop solutions with other cities at regional, national and international level.

Cellnex is present in several smart cities in Europe.
