SCM’s technicians review the cell site radios and antenna configurations to estimate the monthly power
draw at the cell site. In the hundreds of cell sites SCM has surveyed an average of 10% have
unauthorized power consumption. As we evolve into 5G cellular carriers are intending to triple their
input power at more than one million cell sites. A 4G cell site operates at 120 Watts of input power. A
5G cell site will need 320 watts of power. SCM wants to make sure your power is not used by your
cellular tenant without your knowledge. SCM has recouped over one million dollars in illegal power use
settlements for our clients.
