Small Cells

Gore's involvement with small cells relates to their venting solutions, which protect telecom equipment operating outdoors. Rapid changes in temperature and pressure can cause pressure imbalance within sealed equipment casings. This leads to moisture being sucked inside, which in turn causes reduced lifetime and higher maintenance costs.

Gore's venting products effectively protect against the negative effects of pressure differentials caused by temperature changes. With their integrated GORE™ Membrane, these vents allow an enclosure to equalize pressure quickly when subjected to changes in temperature and pressure.

Venting applies to all outdoor telecom equipment, including not just the small cell/Metrocell itself but also separate wireless backhaul units.
