Conbit provides special engineering services for mobile telecom networks, including all engineering related to the construction of antenna sites. With our structural engineering know-how and expertise we are able to design and check all types of structures. Ranging from lattice towers, through building sites to high voltage pylons — Conbit takes care of it all. We have been specially complimented for our work by owners of historic buildings. Treating such locations with care and designing antenna positions to be out of public view as far as possible is a Conbit speciality.
Tower reinforcement: Latics
Conbit has developed a unique tower reinforcement solution: Latics. This add-on reinforcement structure provides a 35% increase in load-bearing capacity to existing telecom towers.
Our rope-access technicians can safely inspect all kinds of difficult-to-access telecom structures. Our special combination of engineering expertise and on-site inspection is highly valued by our customers.
For guy-wired towers, Conbit provides guy-wire tower services including designing, reverse engineering and construction, installation and maintenance services. We analyse, measure and tension guy wires to ensure that your structure remains safe.
Structures for mobile networks
Structures for the telecom industry include various types of supporting towers and masts for mounting antennas and other equipment. Typical of mobile networks is that populated areas are divided into cells. Each cell is served by a telecom site, which handles all signals between mobile phones in that cell and the mobile network. In rural areas, greenfield sites with lattice towers and monopoles are the most common solutions for positioning antennas at the required height. Existing structures such as high-voltage pylons and wind turbines are also used as supporting structures for telecom sites. In urban areas, rooftop-mounted frames and wall-mounted poles are often used.
The telecom industry is a diverse field including all kinds of installations for telecommunication. In the period 1980 to 2000 the mobile phone went from being an expensive item only used by the business elite to a ubiquitous personal communications tool for the general public. Today, 4.5 billion people are using cell phones, and the telecommunication companies are increasingly important.
