JCDecaux SA, the number one outdoor advertising company worldwide, announced that it was recognized in the category of “Small cell technology and deployment enablers” at the awards ceremony of the Small Cell World Summit, held on 10 June in London.
The jury commended JCDecaux’s ability to develop intelligent and aesthetic solutions for integrating small cells into the urban environment while facilitating the involvement of cities and local operators.
The jury also praised the diversity of technological collaborations initiated by JCDecaux as well as the Group’s role in bringing together various players for the development of connected street furniture.
