Are you monitoring your tower assets correctly?

Are your tower assets getting away from you?

Unless you just joined the telecom industry, you know that tower structural analysis and maintenance is critical to any installation. The elements as well as accidental damage can mark the beginning of the end if damage is not caught and corrected early on. The liability of unintended failures (I don’t know of any that are intended) continues to grow. Loss of service, property damages, litigation and cost are just a few of the downsides of incorrect or non-existent tower monitoring and evaluation.

Is there a new solution? Yes, 3D laser scanning and FEA (Finite Element Analysis) modeling.

In short, 3D laser scanning is a complete data capture method which brings all the real-world data to your desktop. With it you can monitor, validate, re-design, and predict your asset’s time of usable functionality.

How does it work? Simply put, a field service group (FSG) will scan, and if needed, model your current cell tower asset location. This data is a snapshot in time of the current structural and overall dimensional conditions. It can be validated against existing design drawings or CAD models. This immediately gives you a field ready report of the current condition and accuracy of your installation.
