As the widespread deployment of 5G networks inches closer to becoming a reality, everyone in the telecommunications industry is being forced to consider how such a change in hardware could impact, and radically change, the way we live and communicate with each other.
Industry experts are well aware of the broad implications this inevitable evolution of cellular mobile communication could bring about. 5G could supply our technology with the tools it needs to fully realize the potential of multiple new developments, including cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT)—a vast network of items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and other tools that allow this network to connect, collect, and exchange data—and the practical implementation of rising technologies like artificial-intelligence and high-capacity mobile computing.
These are sizable and ambitious developments that could bring our world one step closer to bringing ideas usually found in science fiction into tangible reality. In fact, according to research done by Statista, worldwide subscriptions to 5G networks are expected to reach 2.61 billion by 2025, which means these new technological developments are just around the corner.
Although there is still some time before 5G completely replaces the fourth generation telecommunications network, the time to prepare for its major deployment is well at hand. As a result, it’s more important than ever for the telecommunications industry to not only be well-versed in this new hardware but also prepared to actually work with it.
The Best Products for an Evolving Industry
As close as the deployment of 5G networks may be, they would be impossible if it wasn’t for the advanced industrial-grade hardware and rigging products used to deploy them. To help you pinpoint what products these expandable and temporary telecommunication tower systems need in order to be safe and secure structures, take a look at the list of tools below.
Industrial-Grade Rigging Systems
Industrial-grade rigging systems will play a central role in the deployment of the next-generation communication technologies found in temporary and extendable tower systems.
These rigging systems are a core component of the telecommunications industry. Not only are they vital for the safety of the men and women who work in telecommunications, but they’re also necessary tools for the reliability and longevity of the tower systems those workers will deploy.
Rigging Blocks and Pulleys
While block and pulley systems may be commonly used by climbers, rescuers, and sailors, they also play an important role in the telecommunications industry. These blocks and pulleys can, and should, be used by engineers during the initial installation and routine maintenance of their telecommunications technology. Their durability, reliability, and security go a long way toward improving the safety and efficiency of maintaining telecommunications technology.
They’re also important tools for the raising and hoisting of telecommunication towers, regardless of whether they’re telescopic tower systems or mobile tower systems being raised from a horizontal position.
Load-rated blocks and pulleys are also key and are often used by professionals because of their ability to capably carry large loads of materials. Industrial-grade blocks and pulleys are built to hold the most demanding loads, making them especially valuable for the safe and seamless deployment of tower systems.
When deploying temporary or even permanent tower systems, most telecommunication companies rely on steel cable or wires to ensure a safe and seamless installation process. However, as lighter industrial ropes made from synthetic fibers become an increasingly popular option, companies are starting to see that the time has come for an update to their usual way of doing things.
These lighter, synthetic ropes are proving themselves to be especially useful for installing temporary tower systems, as these systems must be deployed and redeployed repeatedly. These new industrial ropes work so well because they reduce the level of friction the towers experience during these deployments.
They also last longer than the usual steel cables, meaning they can be used and re-used more times than your usual wires.
As more small and temporary telecommunications towers become necessary in order for companies to meet the increasing demands for telecom services, these new industrial ropes are becoming a cost-effective tool that can and should be taken advantage of.
The Changing Telecommunications Industry
As the telecommunications industry continues to barrel towards a future of universal 5G networks and increasingly impressive tower systems, the tools and equipment we use to support these advancements need to evolve as well.
