3 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA 1. Introduction At the request of Verizon Wireless, C Squared Systems, LLC has undertaken an analysis and review of the proposed wireless facility at 13 Liberty Lane in Southwick, MA, which generally consists of a fenced compound with groundbased equipment and a 120 monopole. As with other applications where C Squared has been engaged by Verizon Wireless to review or prepare materials on their behalf, our analysis and findings are limited to the technical nature of the proposed facility and how it fits within Verizon s wireless network. The following items were provided by Verizon Wireless to further our review: Project site plans, prepared by Hudson Design Group and dated 11/4/2020 (Rev. 7); Site configurations of the proposed and surrounding facilities within Verizon s network; Statement Regarding Search Area Ring Southwick SE, MA ; Town of Southwick bylaws, Chapter 185 Zoning, Article IV. Use Regulations, Wireless Communications Services District 1 Town of Southwick Wireless Communication Service District Overlay dated April 10, 2001; Engineering Necessity Case Southwick SE, MA, prepared 2/24/2020 and updated 12/7/2020. This report includes modeled Radio Frequency (RF) coverage of the surrounding sites in Verizon Wireless network, the proposed site and two (2) alternate locations, and calculations of the service improvement in terms of population, roadways, and area. 2. Wireless Network Design Background Verizon Wireless provides digital voice and data communications services using 3rd Generation (3G) CDMA/EVDO technology in the Cellular (800 MHz) and PCS (1900 MHz) frequency bands, and is in the midst of deploying advanced 4th Generation (4G) voice and data services over LTE technology in the 700 MHz, Cellular, PCS, and AWS (2100 MHz) frequency bands as allocated by the FCC. These networks are used by mobile devices for fast web browsing, media streaming, and other applications that require broadband connections. The mobile devices that benefit from these advanced networks are not limited to basic handheld phones, but also include devices such as smartphones, PDA s, tablets, and laptop air-cards. To maintain a reliable and robust communications system for the individuals, businesses, public safety workers and others who use its network, Verizon Wireless and similar competing wireless providers deploy a network of cell sites (also called wireless communications facilities) throughout the areas in which it is licensed to provide service. These cell sites consist of antennas mounted on structures, such as buildings and towers, supported by radio and power equipment. The receivers and transmitters at each of these sites process signals within a limited geographic area known as a cell. Mobile subscriber handsets and wireless devices operate by transmitting and receiving low power radio frequency signals to and from these cell sites. Handset signals that reach the cell site are transferred through land lines (or other 1 C Squared Systems, LLC 1 December 30, 2020

4 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA means of backhaul transport) and routed to their destinations by sophisticated electronic equipment. In order for these networks to function effectively, there must be adequate overlapping coverage between the serving cell and adjoining cells. This not only allows a user to access the network initially, but also allows for the transfer or handoff of calls and data transmissions from one cell to another, and prevents unintended disconnections or dropped calls. The antennas also must be located high enough above ground level to allow transmission (a.k.a. propagation) of the radio frequency signals above trees, buildings, and other natural or man-made structures that may obstruct or diminish the signals. Areas without adequate radio frequency coverage have substandard service, characterized by dropped and blocked calls, slow data connections, or no wireless service at all, and are commonly referred to as coverage gaps. The size of the area potentially served by each cell site depends on several factors including the number of antennas used, the height at which the antennas are deployed, the topography of the surrounding land, vegetative cover, and natural or man-made obstructions in the area. The actual service area at any given time also depends on the number of customers who are on the network in range of that cell site. As customers move throughout the service area, the transmission from the phone or other device is automatically transferred to the next facility with the best reception, without interruption in service, provided that there is overlapping coverage between the cells. Each cell site must be primarily designed to strike a balance between the overall geographic coverage area it will serve, and the site s capacity to support the usage within the coverage footprint. In rural areas, cell sites are generally designed to have broader coverage footprints because the potential traffic is sparser and distributed over a larger area. In more densely populated suburban and urban environments, the capacity to handle calls and data transmissions is of increasing concern, and cell sites must limit their coverage footprint to an area where the offered network traffic can be supported by the radio equipment and resources. Due to the aggressive historical and projected growth of mobile usage, particularly for mobile data (30% in for mobile download data in the U.S. 2 ), instances arise where the usage demand can no longer be supported by the site(s) serving an area, and new facilities must be integrated to provide capacity relief to the overloaded sites. Coverage deficiency and inadequate capacity are often intertwined and not independent of each other in the sense that weak coverage can breed capacity problems, and when usage outpaces the network s ability to serve that demand, service deficiencies can exist even in strong coverage areas. Wireless operators must monitor both the coverage provided to areas in the network along with performance usage trends and capacity of their network to plan additional network infrastructure in order to stay ahead of problems impacting customer satisfaction on the live network Annual Survey Highlights, August 25, 2020, CTIA.

5 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA 3. The Proposed Facility Verizon Wireless proposed facility would consist principally of the following elements: 1) A 120 monopole tower centered within a 50 x 50 fenced equipment compound; 2) Twelve (12) panel antennas (four per sector) mounted on the proposed 120 monopole, at a centerline elevation of 120 AGL; 3) Remote Radio Heads (RRH) with accessory junction boxes and surge suppressors mounted alongside the antennas. 4) Outdoor telecommunication equipment on a 4 x 7-6 concrete pad within the compound; 5) A propane generator on a 3-6 x 8 concrete pad and 500-gallon propane tank on a 4 x 10 concrete pad within the compound; 6) Utility connection cabinets and meter banks on H-frames with underground utilities along the proposed access drive from existing utility sources on Liberty Lane; 4. Coverage and Capacity Objectives As mentioned above, Verizon Wireless is in the process of rolling out its 4G LTE high-speed wireless broadband system in the 700 MHz, Cellular, PCS, and AWS frequency bands, in accordance with its licenses from the FCC. In order to expand and enhance their wireless services throughout New England, wireless operators must first identify, and then fill in existing coverage gaps and address capacity, interference, and high-speed broadband issues. As part of this effort and as stated in Verizon s Project Need Overview section of its Engineering Necessity Case, the proposed facility is intended to improve coverage and available capacity of its network to Forest Road, S Longyard Road, and the surrounding homes, businesses, and venues such as Southwick High School, nearby athletic fields and motocross track. Vehicular traffic counts 3 in this area are as follows: Route 57 (Feeding Hill Road) serves ~ 11,500 vehicles/day as measured west of Foster Road (2019); South Longyard Road serves ~ 2,900 vehicles/day as measured south of Depot Street (2019); Foster Road/North Longyard Road serves ~ 5,900 vehicles/day north of Route 57 (2019) and 2,600 vehicles/day as measured south of Route 57 (2019); These secondary roads through town and population of the area create a stable and consistent demand for usage, which can drastically increase at certain times during the day at the nearby Southwick High School or due to special events at the athletic fields or motocross venue. 3 Traffic counts are sourced from the MA Department of Transportation, Transportation Data Management System.

6 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA 5. Site Search and Selection Process To find a site that provides acceptable coverage, adequate capacity, and fills the gaps in service, computer modeling software is typically used to define a search area. The search ring identifies the area within which a site could be located (assuming sufficient height is considered) that would have a high probability of addressing the significant coverage gap and/or meeting the capacity objectives established by the RF (Radio Frequency) engineers. Once a search ring is determined, real estate specialists search within the proximity of the defined area for existing buildings, towers, and other structures of sufficient height that would meet the defined objectives. If none are found, then the focus shifts to raw land sites. A suitable site must satisfy the technical requirements identified by the RF engineers, must be available for lease, and must have access to a road and be otherwise suitable for constructing a cell site of the required size and height. Typical preference of both the wireless operator and the permitting municipality is to use existing structures before pursuing a raw land build to minimize the number of new towers throughout the cities and towns being served. The Southwick bylaw defines three (3) categories of wireless telecommunications facilities Interior Wireless Communications Facility, Minor Wireless Telecommunications Facility, and Major Wireless Telecommunications Facility. Please refer to the town s bylaw for specific definitions of each. The proposed facility falls under the Major Wireless Telecommunications Facility by definition, because it does not fall under either an Interior or Minor Wireless Telecommunications Facility category, and primarily because it requires a new structure rather than collocation on or in an existing structure. One of the General Requirements ( D (2)) of a Major Wireless Telecommunications Facility is that it will be located in the Wireless Telecommunications Overlay District and will be suitably screened from abutters and residential neighborhoods. The proposed facility is located within the Overlay District and based on the information provided for our review, two additional properties also in the Overlay District were evaluated by Verizon Wireless. The table below provides general location information about the proposed and alternate properties. In the following sections of this report, all three locations are evaluated from a technical standpoint only, and not with respect to the second half of the bylaw requirement related to screening.

Coverage Analysis and Propagation Plots The signal propagation plots provided in this report were produced using decibel Planner, a Windows-based RF propagation computer modeling program and network planning tool. The software considers the topographical features of an area, land cover, antenna models, antenna heights, RF transmitting power and receiver thresholds to model coverage and other related RF parameters used in site design and network expansion. The coverage plots included as attachments show coverage based on RSRP signal strengths of -95 dbm and above, which is the threshold customarily used by Verizon for suburban areas such as Southwick. All other areas (depicted in white) fall within coverage areas characterized by poor service quality, low data throughput, and the substantial likelihood of unreliable service. Attachments A - E are discussed below: Attachment A titled Southwick SE Surrounding 700 MHz & 2100 MHz LTE Coverage shows the coverage provided to areas of Southwick from the On-Air and Planned macro-sites listed in Table 2. On-Air sites are existing Verizon Wireless facilities, and Planned sites are defined as those that are presently in the permitting process by Verizon to develop a facility. The green and yellow shaded areas represent the minimum desired level of coverage for most of this area for the 700 MHz and 2100 MHz network layers, respectively. Because of the superior propagation characteristics of 700 MHz relative to 2100 MHz, the 2100 MHz coverage areas (yellow) are generally contained within the 700 MHz coverage areas (green). As such, the deficient areas of 700 MHz coverage are defined by the unshaded areas, whereas the deficient areas of 2100 MHz coverage consist of both the green and white areas. As shown in this plot, portions of Southwick are in areas of deficient coverage. These coverage gaps, particularly at 2100 MHz, include Foster Road, S Longyard Road, Powder Mill Road and the surrounding roads and neighborhoods nearby. Attachment B titled Southwick SE MHz & 2100 MHz LTE Coverage with Proposed Site shows the composite coverage with the proposed Southwick SE facility. As shown by the additional areas of coverage, the proposed facility will provide coverage to: ~ 0.8 mi (700 MHz) and 0.7 mi (2100 MHz) along Foster Road; ~ 0.3 mi (700 MHz) and 0.5 mi (2100 MHz) along Route 57; ~ 0.8 mi (700 MHz) and 0.2 mi (2100 MHz) along South Longyard Road; ~ 717 (700 MHz) and ~ 560 (2100 MHz) additional residents 5 ; ~ 60 (700 MHz) and ~ 65 (2100 MHz) additional employees 6 ; ~ 420 (700 MHz) and ~ 336 (2100 MHz) additional structures 7 ; 5 Residential population counts referenced here and elsewhere in this report are based upon the 2010 U.S. Census data. 6 Employee population counts referenced in this report are based upon the 2015 U.S. Census Bureau LEHD database. 7 Structure counts referenced here and elsewhere in this report are based upon roofprint data sourced from MassGIS (Bureau of Geographic Information). The dataset contains two-dimensional roof outlines for all buildings larger than 150 ft2 and may not necessarily include only dwellings.

9 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA Attachment C titled Southwick SE Existing/Approved 700 MHz LTE Sector Footprints depicts the areas primarily served by the sectors (a.k.a. signal footprints ) of the surrounding Verizon Wireless macro sites, which are shown by the unique color for each particular sector of interest that provides service into the areas of concern in southeast Southwick. For clarity, all other sectors of less interest with respect to the proposed site are shown in grey. As demand for wireless voice and data services continues to grow, wireless operators must manage the footprint of each sector so that it can support the demand within the area it is primarily serving. In addition to improving coverage to the area, the proposed site will also serve existing and anticipated demand in the vicinity and thereby offload some of the burden experienced by the surrounding sites. In that way, those sites will be able to more adequately serve the demand for service in the areas nearer to those surrounding sites. Please note that the outer parts of each sector footprint may include areas that presently have signal strength below the targeted value required for reliable service. The fact that low-level signal may reach these areas does not mean that these areas experience adequate coverage. These unreliable areas of low signal level can impose a significant capacity burden on the sites primarily serving the area. Attachment D titled Southwick SE MHz LTE Sector Footprints with Proposed Site shows the composite coverage with the overall footprint of the proposed facility in green. As shown in this map, the proposed Southwick SE facility would provide capacity relief to the area, particularly to the Southwick 2 beta sector (red) and the Agawam gamma sector (orange). The proposed facility is centrally located in a populated area of deficient coverage in Town allowing it to distribute the traffic load across multiple sectors and provide a dominant server to this pocket of potentially heavier usage. Table 3 below details the capacity relief based on the sector footprints shown in Attachments C and D.

These terrain features play a key role in dictating both the unique coverage areas served from a given location, and the coverage gaps within the network. This map is included to provide a visual representation of the terrain variations that must be considered when determining the appropriate location and design of a proposed wireless facility. The blue and green shades correspond to lower elevations, whereas the orange, red, gray and white shades indicate higher elevations. C Squared Systems, LLC 7 December 30, 2020

10 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA 8. Alternative Candidate Analysis As mentioned earlier and listed in Table 1, Verizon considered two other locations for a Major Wireless Communications Facility that fall within the Overlay District nearby. Our analysis of each property and corresponding maps are discussed below. In terms of height, the analysis is based upon the maximum height of 150 per the bylaw ( F (2)), which equates to an antenna centerline height of 146 AGL based on a similar tower/antenna design as with the proposed tower. Attachment F titled Southwick SE 700 & 2100 MHz LTE Coverage with Alternate 1 (High School) shows the composite coverage with a tower in the southeast corner of the High School property, in a small clearing based on aerial imagery. For comparison purposes, this map is similar to Attachment B discussed earlier. A site here would do well to cover the High School, athletic fields, the Woodland Elementary School, and improve coverage along Route 57. Due to the surrounding topography, it is unable to provide adequate coverage along Foster Road, S Longyard Road, and to the eastern portion of the neighborhoods surrounding the proposed site. As shown by the additional areas of coverage, this location would provide coverage to: ~ 0.1 mi (700 MHz) along South Longyard Road; ~ 0.2 mi (700 MHz) and 0.1 mi (2100 MHz) along Powder Mill Road; ~ 0.3 mi (700 MHz) and 0.2 mi (2100 MHz) along Route 57; ~ 766 (700 MHz) and ~ 644 (2100 MHz) additional residents; ~ 170 (700 MHz) and ~ 315 (2100 MHz) additional employees; ~ 322 (700 MHz) and ~ 373 (2100 MHz) additional structures; Attachment G titled Southwick SE 700 MHz LTE Sector Footprints with Alternate 1 (High School) shows the composite coverage with the overall footprint of the High School alternate, and can be compared to Attachment D. This map shows that this alternate would do well to offload the Southwick 2 beta sector (red) by picking up the High School, athletic fields, Elementary School, Motocross track, and the western portion of the neighborhood surrounding the proposed site. This alternate would be less effective in expanding coverage to the east and southeast (where it is currently weakest), providing a dominant server to the more densely populated neighborhoods around the proposed site. It would also have limited impact in offloading Agawam beta (orange) in this area, which would remain the most likely server from 2.5 mi away for the eastern portion of that neighborhood. C Squared Systems, LLC 8 December 30, 2020

11 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA Attachment H titled Southwick SE 700 & 2100 MHz LTE Coverage with Alternate 2 (Open Parcel) shows the composite coverage with a tower in the in an open parcel (# ) off Feeding Hills Road. A site here would improve existing adequate and marginal coverage along Route 57 but would be significantly terrain blocked from expanding coverage to the south and east to areas along Foster Road, S Longyard Road, and the to the neighborhoods around the proposed site. As shown by the additional areas of coverage, this location would provide coverage to: ~ 0.1 mi (700 MHz) along South Longyard Road; ~ 0.1 mi (2100 MHz) along Powder Mill Road; ~ 0.3 mi (700 MHz) and 0.7 mi (2100 MHz) along Route 57; ~ 355 (700 MHz) and ~ 475 (2100 MHz) additional residents; ~ 141 (700 MHz) and ~ 289 (2100 MHz) additional employees; ~ 165 (700 MHz) and ~ 276 (2100 MHz) additional structures; Attachment I titled Southwick SE 700 MHz LTE Sector Footprints with Alternate 2 (Open Parcel) shows the composite coverage with the overall footprint of the Open Parcel alternate, and can be compared to Attachments D & G. This map shows that this alternate would offload the Southwick 2 beta sector (red) by picking up the High School, and most of the athletic fields, Elementary School, Motocross track, and the western portion of the neighborhood surrounding the proposed site. As noted with the High School location, this alternate would be less effective in expanding coverage to the east and southeast (where it is currently weakest), providing a dominant server to the more densely populated neighborhoods around the proposed site. It would also have limited impact in offloading Agawam beta (orange), which would remain the most likely server from 2.5 mi away for the eastern portion of that neighborhood. Attachment J titled Wireless Overlay District with Existing, Proposed, and Alternate Locations is the Town s overlay district map with markings to denote Verizon s facilities and other locations discussed in this report. As shown here, all three of Verizon s existing facilities located in Southwick reside within the overlay district. Additionally, the map has two overlay district regions encircled, denoted at Overlay A and Overlay B, to assess the technical viability of other nearby properties in the overlay district. For the analysis of Overlay A, the largest parcel was selected for review (# ) and is ~0.5 mi to the northeast of the proposed location. Due to its distance and the elevated terrain that the proposed site is on, the topography would prevent a site in this area of the overlay district from adequately covering S Longyard Road and the southwest side of the nearby neighborhoods. While our analysis is technical in nature, it appears from a cursory review that any facility located in this area would be limited in height in order to meet the setback requirements of F (1). Overlay B is located over 1.5 mi to the west of the proposed site. While a facility here could be beneficial to improve coverage and capacity along College Highway between Route 57 and Depot Street, it simply located too far away to address Verizon s objectives for the proposed site. C Squared Systems, LLC 9 December 30, 2020

12 Verizon Wireless Southwick SE MA 9. Summary Based on our review and analysis of Verizon s network along with other project documentation, we find that gaps in service do exist within Southwick, including the areas in southeast Southwick described in Verizon s Engineering Necessity Case as being the purpose of the proposed facility. We further conclude that the proposed facility with antennas at 120 AGL would improve coverage and add capacity to these targeted areas. Additionally, two alternate properties were reviewed that are located in the Wireless Overlay District. The analysis of each is based upon the bylaw s maximum height limitation of 150 tower (~ 146 antenna centerline). As is most often the case, alternate locations typically have both strengths and weaknesses relative to other locations. In comparison to the proposed site, both alternates will serve areas to the north and west better, whereas the proposed site is superior at filling in the deeper coverage gaps located further to the east and south, while also better balancing the traffic demand from the neighborhoods surrounding the proposed site. Other hypothetical locations in the Wireless Overlay District were reviewed and found to be far less effective in improving coverage and adding capacity to the targeted areas, and/or would be largely redundant with other existing Verizon facilities located nearby. 10.
