Cell Tower Management Challenges

Cell Tower Management
Challenges



Most telecom service providers and infrastructure companies have a large number of telecom towers spread over a wide geography with a significant number located in remote areas.

Service outages in strategic locations caused by disabled cell towers affect the credibility, brand, lost airtime and revenue.

Copper theft from the tower sites make them more vulnerable to lightning strikes and the damage caused by these thefts is often several times the value of the metal stolen, leaving hefty repair costs in their wake.

Other Challenges:

  • Fuel availability/theft
  • Battery capacity and health status
  • Physical Security & Site Access
  • Temperature and Humidity - in/out
  • Damage to facility (flooding, black-out, etc..)
  • Predictive Maintenance
  • SLA Management
