Completing a Telstra 4GX/5G Mobile Broadband installation on a steep two story roof means access is limited. When it comes to needing big, heavy, hard to move machines & seriously heavy transport for big & difficult access jobs, Essential Communications have it in spades.
This 64 ton 95ft Reach Knuckle Boom was so large & heavy that it needed to be transported to site on a special quad axle expandable float, behind a Kenworth T901 prime mover, by Shamick Transport, one of the best in the business when it comes to moving large, over weight & over size machines.
There was no other way possible to safely get on the top level of this building because of it’s construction and how close it was to other houses, thus the need for a long reach knuckle boom.
For this, we needed special council permits to even bring it to site, which included stopping residential parking on one side of the street, traffic control to operate the machine from the street reaching back to the premise in question.
The Installation consists of 1 x Telco Antennas Heavy Duty Galvanised Tile Roof Mount 50mm – with a 2.0m galvanized mast, bolted into the roofing structure.
Atop of the Telco Antennas Heavy Duty Galvanised Tile Roof Mount is a RFI Technology Solutions Wide-band MIMO 3G, 4G & 5G Panel Antenna – 700-3800MHz. This was chosen so that when the client has 5G in their area they can simply swap out the router for a 5G router, with minimal need for further modifications.
Attached to the RFI Technology Solutions Wide-band MIMO 3G, 4G & 5G Panel Antenna – 700-3800MHz is a Phaseblocker N Male to Female Lightning Arrester – up to 6GHz to provide electrical protecting to the clients infrastructure.
The RFI Technology Solutions Wide-band MIMO 3G, 4G & 5G Panel Antenna – 700-3800MHz is cabled down to a Telco Antennas T1 3G/4G/4GX/4G+ CAT6 LTE Advanced 4G Wifi Modem via a length of Telco Antennas LCU400 10m Coaxial Cable – N Male to SMA Male.
The Telco Antennas T1 3G/4G/4GX/4G+ CAT6 LTE Advanced 4G Wifi Modem was plugged into a Netgear GS108E managed switch to distribute broadband service to 4 x Ubiquiti Inc UniFi AC LR Access Points, 2 x PC’s & 1 x Smart TV.
All in all, another great success story for both Essential Communications and our client. Check out the finished speed test.
Again a special shout & thanks goes to our incredible infrastructure supplier Telco Antennas & their suppliers including but not limited to RFI Technology Solutions.
A big shout also goes to out the highly professional transport operator Shamick Transport, for manouvering such a large Prime Mover & Float with such a heavy machine onboard, into what was a very small council street in Melbourne’s inner south east.
