Meeting Customer Needs: T-Mobile's AFS 600 Self-Raising Pole
ARE Telecom was contracted by T-Mobile to manufacture and install our AFS 600 ballasted foundation system and tilt-up self raising pole to support communication antennas.
T-Mobile needed to install a microwave antenna on a 60’ pole in a local parking lot. ARE’s AFS 600 allowed T-Mobile to have a permanent or temporary foundation with a 60’ self-raising pole that is assembled by 2 people. This system allowed for the antennas to be installed on the ground and be raised without use of a crane.
Thanks to ARE Telecom’s expertise and innovative solutions, T-Mobile was able to significantly improve the reliability and performance of its telecommunication infrastructure. T-Mobile was able to meet their customers’ needs and deploy an ARE system quickly, that can remain on site permanently if needed, or disassembled and removed in 1 day.
