A Bird? A Plane? It’s Super Cells!

AT&T is bringing “Super” Cell Sites to downtown San Diego in preparation for increased wireless network usage during this year’s comic book convention.

AT&T announces the  deployment of not one, but two “Super” cell sites – a “Super” COLT (Cell on Light Truck), and a “Super” COW (Cell on Wheels) in downtown San Diego to help manage the expected increase in demand for wireless service during the comic book convention.

The two “Super” sites are being deployed to boost capacity and enhance the customer experience for thousands of comic book and pop culture fans gathering at the sold-out event. Innovative multi-beam antenna technology gives the cell sites their “Super” status – adding another “Super” hero to the convention. Saving one AT&T wireless customer at a time.

The cell sites are part of AT&T’s ongoing innovative network solutions designed to help people stay connected – and share memorable moments with their mobile devices. In the past six years, mobile data traffic on AT&T’s wireless network has increased more than 30,000 percent. Finding new ways to meet data demand for large crowds at big events doesn’t take super powers – but it does take a determined team of network engineers and innovative network solutions, to equal a true dynamic duo in action.
