This was just put up this morning. It's located in the center of a housing project about 300 feet from the main office. Anybody have any idea what it's purpose is???

Looks similar to a network router.

Sometimes in office blocks if there are too many wireless networks in range all the available channels can be used more than once which causes disconnections etc. Could be that they moved the network because it was interfering with all the other wireless signals and channels?

Just speculating.

It would help if you got another shot of it because its hard to tell if its a light thats connected to a building or not.

It looks like some sort of telecoms device to me though regardless.

Can you show more views?
The thing below with the wire protruding reminds me of a tv camera.....
cant see any lense though fron this angle....
a better closeup would help also....
Perhaps it turns the street lights on and off?
But looks like surveilance type gear to me....

Looks like wireless video surveilance to me. Probably trying to up the security in the office park. It's either that or a relay for a wireless network to boost its signal strength.

All that means: It's nothing sinister so you can take off the tin foil now.

Looks like a antenna device designed to track or moniter cell phone users or its a camera or both.

Almost all the "traffic cams" where I live also have a device similar to that on one or all of the poles. I'll try to snap a pic next time I'm out in traffic.

if its like this one then its probably a mobile broadband wireless antenna.

Looks like a broadband WiFi box. These are all over the place here. At one time the city was going to offer free WiFi for all its residents and be some kind of trailblazing community. Until the people who make money off internet service came calling, I assume. It never materialized.

If it's not that, It might be for the coppers - they have computers in their cars now so maybe it's for that??

After management goes home for the day, I'll walk down and take a couple more shots from different angles at close range.

I was hoping that it was a dual band signal booster for cell phones... as reception sucks down here.

It is a mini cell phone "tower."

Evidently, a cheap version that is not concealed.

I think it's a wireless broadband base station, it's very similar to the one in this article

I know in New Orleans the install "gun shot" instruments that notify police if gun shots are in an area.
P.S. I have a friend that installed one in Jefferson Parish and they failed to work.

get you laptop up and running capture the packets and the rest is obvious enough. Although the antenna above the street light is what i like. It seem like its in the 90 range (xhigh freq), obviously not for home use.

Here we go everyone... much better shots from close range.

Photo ONE... files.abovetopsecret.com...

Photo TWO... files.abovetopsecret.com...

Photo THREE... files.abovetopsecret.com...

This last photo is of something unusual that's on the roof of some of the buildings. Anyone have any idea what it could be???

Here's my guess.


Those types of fiberglass antenna are commonly, (not always) used for industrial WIFI. An array is a little unusual for omni directional antenna, so they could be WIMAX

You can see an example of a WIMAX antenna here and here

Hard to tell just by looking at it.
