Techopedia Explains Cell On Wheels (COW)
October 26, 2022
COW cellular tower equipment and mobile wireless communication machinery include cellular antenna and electronic radio transceiver devices. COW network backhaul communication is enabled via terrestrial microwave, satellite and wired infrastructure.
COW cellular service is mostly provided to areas with non-functioning stationary cell towers. COW is also used for long-term placement by telecommunication companies when permanent site building is impeded by financing or infrastructure limitations.
Engineering teams may facilitate COW placement on location to provide coverage with minimal costs. Extended COW use is determined by property owners.
