Saudi Arabia’s STC Group has deployed Ericsson Tower Tube cell towers at eight different sites in Princess Noura University in Riyadh.

Ericsson’s Tower Tube technology is more efficient than traditional tower equipment and will help STC to reduce operational costs and carbon dioxide emissions.

The Tower Tubes also takes up less space on the ground and are deemed to fit in better with the local area.

"Besides allowing us to reduce operational costs, this new technology will also support STC’s efforts to lower our environmental impact by using more sustainable products, green technology, and becoming more energy efficient,” said Bander Alqefari, network vice president, STC.

Ali Eid, President of Ericsson in KSA, said: "Through innovations such as the Ericsson Tower Tube, we hope to lead the transition to a low-carbon economy and decrease CO2 emissions regionally and globally."

The Ericsson Tower Tube solution supports the full spectra of antennas and radio equipment and can also house substantially more antennas and micro-wave dishes compared with a traditional tower solution.

The tower’s concrete exterior provides a stable internal environment while simultaneously protecting all equipment from adverse weather conditions and vandalism.
