  • Patent number: 10439290
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, a communication device having a dielectric antenna, a radio housing, a hollow waveguide and an antenna stabilizer. The radio housing can enclose a transmitter that generates electromagnetic waves. The hollow waveguide can have a cavity therethrough to facilitate transmission of the electromagnetic waves to a feed point of the dielectric antenna for guidance of the electromagnetic waves without requiring an electrical return path, where the electromagnetic waves generate near-field wireless signals. The antenna stabilizer can facilitate coupling the hollow waveguide to the feed point of the dielectric antenna. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10416683
    Abstract: Modular utility pole technology may address issues with access and placement of telecommunications equipment. At the top of the pole, a removable cap may allow access to an upper module, which may contain wireless communications gear, sensors, lights, alarms or other devices. A conduit may provide network connections and power runs from the upper module to a lower module area. The lower module may house additional communications devices, such as cable modems or other devices used for network access or backhaul.
