Small Cell Spotting in London

7:10 AM -- In time for the London 2012 Olympics, Telefónica UK Ltd. 's mobile operator O2 has switched on a public outdoor Wi-Fi network using equipment from Ruckus Wireless Inc. (See Small Cell Network Planning Poses Problems and More IPO Ruckus .)

With so much talk about small cells on lampposts as the archetypal scenario for a new wave of wireless broadband network deployments, I was curious to see just what these little access points look like in the wild.

Check out what this tech anorak found on a stroll around Trafalgar Square on a fine day in June (well, it wasn't raining) by clicking on the photo below to launch the slide show.

In a more perfect world, the slide show would be accompanied by Herman's Hermits (Leaning on a Lamppost). I do like the way the boxes coordinate with the surveillance cameras. Fashionable and understated -- exactly what we expect from London (the Beckhams aside).
