Remote Line Power Solutions and Papers to be Featured at INTELEC 2018

Turin, Italy. October 7, 2018 – Alpha Technologies Ltd., the power behind the evolution of communications networks, is playing a leading role in advocating the use of Remote Line Power for Small Cell networks at the INTELEC® 2018 – International Telecommunications Energy Conference being held October 7-11 in Torino, Italy. Four of the company’s five papers address the topic of Remote Line Power and how it can be used to minimize the logistical hurdles in deploying small cells or other distributed networks. In addition, Alpha is featuring small cell solutions for Europe, Asia, and North America, as well as products that can be used with either twisted pair OSP copper cable or coaxial cable.

“Because Remote Line Power eliminates the need for batteries at the edge of the network, we have always considered it to be a costeffective alternative to local power solutions,” said Victor Goncalves, Chief Technology Officer for Alpha Technologies. “But the vast number of small cells in a metropolitan area is changing the perspective. Network builders and neutral hosts have found that the optimal sites for RF coverage do not always coincide with the availability of electricity. Rather than manage logistics with local electrical utilities, the small cell providers have turned to Remote Line Power because it is a faster way to get power to the site.”

Describe the culture at Alpha using 3 words.

“Innovative, collaborative, experience-focused”

What were some of the projects you were involved with?

“I’m working on doing research and testing for the next-gen products, focusing on power-line communications.”

What do you think was the key take away from your internship?

“You can learn a lot just by asking questions outside your circle, not just staying within your specific team. Going to different teams and learning about other parts of the company as well. If you’re willing to put yourself out there and try different things, you’ll develop skills you didn’t think you needed.”

What is some advice you would give to students looking for a co-op opportunity?

“Well the obvious thing is to learn the academics, but I would also say have interests outside of what you’re doing. Not just engineering but what you like to do outside of that. It’s good to have the interests because it helps you integrate with the team better and it demonstrates personality as well.”

Outside of the office, what can you be found doing?

“I guess like going out with friends and hanging out.”
