Re: Okay Guys What The Hell Is This Contraption?

I'd say it's most likely a microcell.

The lower box is likely a battery backup unit.

So you guys are telling me this is essentially a mini cellphone tower? How many customers can it serve at one time? What's the range in square miles of its coverage area?

Those questions cannot be answered by looking at some pictures. Range depends on altitude, terrain, antenna gain, transmitter power, etc. Capacity depends on technology and backhaul capacity.
