Mobile Communication Systems Make Construction Site Services Possible

Remote construction communications systems

There are more than 491 telecommunications companies, including mobile phone satellite services and mobile communications towers, in the U.S. — and that number is growing. A big part of the reason is that demand comes from all different sectors. Remote sectors, such as construction sites and mountainous areas, need viable communication systems that work just as well as satellite and IT technologies in urban and suburban areas. Here are some ways mobile phone satellite services are rising to the challenge and providing for these specific groups of people.

Telescoping Masts

One solution is to make the systems themselves mobile — literally. Some companies provide mobile phone and IT services simply by using mobile centers (typically vans) with antennae or masts attached. This can be an efficient last-minute solution, or a viable solution in an area where people will be for a short while, but not long-term. That way, businesses do not pay unnecessary costs of installing a permanent tower and then dissembling it shortly after. The telescoping masts are often light-weight, easy to set up, and easy to extend for better coverage.

Conceal Mobile Communication Systems

Of course, not all businesses want blatant construction communications solutions. Some companies prefer that towers and other equipment to facilitate communications and IT solutions remain subtle and out of the way. These systems can be especially conspicuous in remote locations, such as construction sites. For that reason, companies who install, set up, and maintain mobile communications systems can hide equipment in flag poles, trees, water tanks, and church towers. Hidden towers are perfect for parks, wooded areas, mountain areas, and more. This is a less popular service in urban areas, where these communication systems — and other blatant electrical and satellite equipment — is far more common.

In the U.S., the 14,301 people working in the telecommunications industry collectively earn $6 billion per year. A growing number of providers and companies are making certain every gets the reception and services they need, even if they are working on remote construction sites.
