Case Study: Telecommunications – Physical Network – Tower
Large Telco entity discovers deficiency in the collection and storage of detailed data for its 2400+ National Telco Tower Network. The business seeks an innovative solution aimed at the collection and presentation of detailed, comprehensive asset data.
Towers were inspected manually utilising rope access technicians or EWP’s. Complex SWMS and safety documentation were required, while the equipment and harnesses would need to pass stringent WHS restrictions. (Not to mention the safety implications of team members).
The resulting inspection data consisted of written checklists that would manually be entered within a spreadsheet along with a folder of a hundred plus unreferenced photographs.
Data accuracy, consistency and useability presented a challenge accross several internal departments including sign off, colocation teams, maintenance planners and management.
The geo location of each tower, hardware installed and current condition was not always known or was grossly inaccurate (often eqipment was not contained in the register or would not match currently held records).
The lack of data on co-location sites led to leasees being sold without available space, or tenants installing hardware in the incorrect position
Trendspek delivered complete 3D digital twins of each tower, enabling internal and external teams to know the exact condition of their towers with a life-like resolution while reducing inspection times by 75%.
They were able to complete comprehensive inspections of build quality, identify non- compliant areas of the tower and compound area, while being able to collaborate and share their findings between office departments easily.
Importantly they were able to reduce their exposure to the risk of injury or fatality.
On co-location sites they were able to ensure that leased areas were built in accordance with their respective agreements as well as identify new leasing opportunities.
