New Challenges, New Solutions
2G-3G-4G…and yes 5G is coming too! Technology upgrades are a constant battle for carriers and along with it comes many challenges. First is timelines, which are very aggressive and often driven by competitive forces. Next issue to deal with is maintenance windows, which usually means the work is to be completed at night. Then you have to deal with close quarters, as most upgrades are performed on multi-tenant structures. Add a heavy dose of logistic issues created by the sheer volume of sites, and the likelihood for success dwindles. That is why it is best to work with a team that has plenty of experience with technology upgrades.
