Essential Communications Services were contracted by our ever supportive supplier, Telco Antennas, to complete a Telstra 4G/4GX mobile broadband installation for one of their clients in Geelong.
This client needed stable, reliable internet access to be able to communicate effectively with their head office, so we were contracted to install a Telstra 4G service to the corregated tin roof of the office section of this warehouse & connect it to a Teltonika Networks RUT240
On top of a Telco Antennas serviceable 3 metre galvanized mast we attached 1 x RFI Wide-band MIMO 3G, 4G & 5G Panel Antenna to capture the best signal possible, 2 x Phaseblocker N Male to Female Lightning Arrester – up to 6GHz and 2 x 10 metre LCU400 Coaxial Cables N Male to SMA Male.
The construction of this warehouse is mostly steel, which meant it was acting as a Faraday Cage as most warehouses do. Due to the way this warehouse is constructed, there was no easy access to the roof. So, as Essential Communications Services is fully Worksafe accredited & holds worksafe licenses for High Risk (Boom, Elevated Work Platform, Forklift & Crane) Access, we hired a 65ft reach knuckle boom lift from our hiring agents Allcott Hire, to be able to access the roof safely which had to be trucked to site in a 40ft tri axle semi trailer from Melbourne.
As with all of our installations, we conducted a full site survey & inspection prior to the commencement of the installation, so that we would know exactly what was needed to be done to ensure that the client received the best possible signal in the safest possible way. This meant that we knew exactly where to place the mast to make the smallest possible run of cabling to reach their communications room where the infrastructure was placed.
Our team were able to place the mast directly above the communications room so we were then able to drop the cabling directly through the corrugated tin roof, making sure it was correctly waterproofed. We were then able to connect our cabling directly into the client’s existing Teltonika Networks RUT240
This was a great installation with a great speed test result, check out the digi pics, ensuring that both Telco Antennas and their client were very happy & satisfied with the finished result.
