Co-location is the sale of space and services on a tower to any service provider. These customers could be a mobile network operator, an internet service provider, security function or private corporation needing point-to-point secure communications.
In instances where co-location is not a viable solution, our team of Site Development Project Managers handles every step of the project to build a site specific to the operator’s requirements.
We execute the whole process from site analysis (land surveys, environmental site assessment, geo-technical analysis, zoning and permitting), site acquisition, permitting and legal due diligence, site development, construction management, to equipment installation.
We buy a network operator’s towers (and related assets) and lease space to them. This frees up their capital, allows them to expand their network quickly and for less cost, and they know they are getting best-in-class service and up-to-date practice. We then have sites that we can share with other customers on a co-location model. Regulators across Africa have been encouraging mobile telecom operators to share infrastructure and improve mobile access and reduce cost to customers.
We manage sites owned by network operators, with the authority to lease out space on the tower and manage shared resources. The site owner reduces their operating costs, eliminates capital expenditure and frees up management time. MNOs now need to focus on their core business.
We offer a full suite of services to manage any site, which we can tailor to our customers’ specific needs. We monitor and manage the use of fuel and other energy sources, running optimized sharing infrastructure with others – all with the aim of reducing operating costs and capital expenditure.
We offer connected solutions for large buildings and offices such as hotels, offices or shopping malls, which require more robust mobile services. This is an efficient and discreet way of creating better coverage for operators, and is also known as a Distributed Antenna System.
