The Need

ARE Telecom was contracted by a private company to provide design consulting, manufacturing, logistics, and installation of a 120’ Direct Embedment Pole.


Thanks to ARE Telecom’s expertise and innovative solutions, the installation of ARE’s 120’ Direct Embedment Pole has allowed for better signal quality in a rural part of the installation area. Due to the unknown soil conditions of the site, the foundation and monopole solution was designed to utilize flexible and reusable equipment and accommodate below grade installation requiring no concrete.
