Newer technologies such as drones and driverless vehicles prompted two wireless communications companies to propose small-area cell antennas on existing streetlights and utility poles in 16 locations in Scranton.

They expect demand from next-generation wireless systems and emerging technologies, including “internetworked” buildings, electronics and appliances called the “Internet of Things,” and environmental sensor networks.

The spate of “small cell” antennas targeting relatively small areas reflects a trend by wireless firms to improve their network capabilities, often in urban areas where demand can strain capacity and geography can present coverage challenges.
