South Melbourne Telstra 4G/4GX Mobile Broadband

Essential Communications Services were contracted by a very large architecture firm to complete a Telstra 4G/4GX mobile broadband infrastructure installation for one of their building projects in South Melbourne.

The office on this site had some service but it was not fully suitable for the project of this size, as the client needed to retrieve & send large CAD drawing files to & from the cloud & their office server on a daily basis and if another PC was downloading a file(s), the other PC’s had to be completely off the network for the download to work.

After an initial site visit to the site to investigate & talk to the clients about their needs the as well as look at installation options so as to know precisely what it is that we would need to complete this Telstra 4G/4GX mobile broadband infrastructure installation we supplied, install & commissioned an RFI Wide-band MiMo 3G/4G/5G Panel Antenna atop a 5m serviceable Galvanized ground Mounted mast.

Because of the distance from the antenna to the office meant that we needed to use very low loss Commscope LDF4-50A cabling as we had to run two x 30m coaxial cable runs to the office area.

Two Telco Antennas Phaseblocker N Male to Female Lightning Arrester – up to 6GHz were put in-line to protect the client’s equipment from lightning strike.

In the photo’s you will see that it looks like the antenna is close to the building site power pole. Looks can be deceiving. There is a full metre & a half between the two as well as the antenna being lower than the power outlet box.


Once all the communications infrastructure was installed & connected to the Telco Antennas X1 Pro LTE 4G CAT12 Industrial Cellular Router supporting- 3G/4G/4GX/4G+ that Essential Communications Services also supplied, installed & commissioned the speed increase was absolutely incredible and so was the clients productivity & efficiency.

The Telstra 4G/4GX mobile broadband service went from 58Mb/s download to 271Mb/s download, over 4 times the speed.

This speed increase has enabled the client to work faster as well as be more productive doing more work in less time making them much more efficient, which in turn will speed up the completion of this project.

If you have a communications & telecommunications infrastructure challenge please do not hesitate to get in touch with Essential Communications Services, it would be our pleasure to be of assistance to you anywhere in Australia.
