Driving Revenue Growth with Tower Colocation Strategies

Driving Revenue Growth with Tower Colocation Strategies

Maximizing your company’s revenue is critical for growth in the current business environment. In the telecommunications industry, tower colocation is a strategic method for boosting revenue fueled by technological advancements and rising network demand that cuts costs and increases property values.

This article will highlight how tower colocation, wireless subleasing, and structural engineering are pivotal in improving revenue and increasing efficiency.

Understanding Tower Colocation

Understanding Tower Colocation

Tower colocation utilizes multiple wireless providers in a single telecom tower for equipment installation, optimizing space and cost-efficiency. Rather than carriers constructing individual towers, colocation reduces redundancies, saving on assets and operational costs. Colocation is essential for network expansion, offering carriers faster service rollout strategies.

Benefits of Tower Colocation

Tower colocation offers several advantages: it reduces upfront costs and ongoing network expansion costs while accelerating deployment. Additionally, obstacles like zoning and land acquisition delays are mitigated. Colocation also improves spectrum usage, network coverage, and capacity and supports sustainability by alleviating the need for new construction.

Colocation Models

Passive and Active Infrastructure Sharing

Passive infrastructure sharing involves multiple carriers utilizing a tower’s space and support structures, not involving transmission equipment. This form conserves the landscape and saves on costs. Active infrastructure sharing includes shared use of transmission equipment like antennas and nodes, bringing about further operational savings and coverage improvements, although it requires greater carrier collaboration.

Build-to-Suit Projects

When pre-existing towers aren’t suitable, build-to-suit projects allow for the construction of towers tailored to carriers’ specific needs, especially in underserved or high-demand areas. This model maximizes long-term utility and ROI, ensuring the infrastructure can support future technological advancements.
