Remote BTS Tower Monitoring System
Over 30 years experience in sensor monitoring solutions
The mobile network infrastructure must be reliable. Many towers operate on service level agreements (SLA) and meeting this requires almost 100% uptime with heavy penalties for any downtime. Implementing an effective remote monitoring system for the critical infrastructure is essential.
Monitoring Telecom Tower Infrastructure
Mobile network operators and carriers operate the nationwide infrastructure of Telecom Towers. Known as Base Station Transceiver Stations (BTS) they form the major component of the GSM cellular network. They transmit and receive radio signals coming to and from mobile phones. The towers have BTS shelters which house the electronic communications equipment that is connected to the antennas on the BTS tower. AKCP sensors are used to monitor environmental conditions in the shelters, as well as an interface to third-party equipment for remote monitoring.
Due to many BTS sites being in remote locations, security and power can be issues that are of major concern. Protecting the site from thieves and vandalism, as well as ensuring 100% uptime requires a robust approach to monitoring security, controlling site access, and maintaining power.
Base Transceiver Station Tower Site Monitoring System
To achieve the high availability and reliability of the BTS Tower Sites, it is essential that the operating environment within the shelter is maintained. Temperature control is through HVAC systems. The air conditioning units carry the risk of malfunction, and when they do temperatures within BTS tower site shelters can rise rapidly putting equipment under stress and leading to failures. With AKCP temperature and Humidity sensors you are ensured that the operating environment within the BTS shelters is stable.
AKCPro Server – Central Monitoring Software
AKCPro Server central monitoring software displays data collected from all temperature and humidity sensors installed at BTS Tower Sites. If you have multiple locations monitor all sites from one interface.
