Sprint (S) will deploy Alcatel-Lucent's (ALU) lightRadio base stations in high-density areas to support its 4G buildout. Alcatel boasts its cube-shaped lightRadio boxes offer superior miniaturization relative to other small base stations, and that their ability to be centrally managed gives them an edge in power consumption and network efficiency. The struggling telecom equipment vendor has already struck lightRadio development deals with China Mobile, America Movil, and others.
