Telecommunication shelters are generally used for housing the electronic equipments and are an integral component at various levels of wireless access networks. The electronics which dissipate heat needs to be cooled for proper functioning of the equipment. Telecom shelters are generally stand-alone, modular structures with their own electrical HVAC systems. The effect of cabinet’s location in the shelter on temperature is studied. The outline of the paper is to validate the shelter model with the test data available by using CFD tool and perform thermal analysis for different location of 2G cabinets and then, to study the effect of isolation in the shelter. It is observed that the isolation in the shelter attributes to lowering the temperature of the cabinets.
