Solutions for telecommunications

Our drone solutions can be used to quickly map and inspect critical telecoms infrastructure.

Using 3D maps or aerial LiDAR point clouds, workers in this sector can get a detailed picture of key telecoms assets while optimising resources and keeping their staff safe.

Key benefits
for the telecommunications sector

Management and development of the network

The Prometheus H2 HPD can help telecoms operators to quickly and effectively inspect various elements of telecoms networks such as pylons or towers on which operators’ antennas stand.

Challenges in managing mobile network elements

    • A major challenge is the monitoring of multiple network elements, often located in hard-to-reach places.

    • Cameras permanently mounted at a site are unable to cover the entire site in detail, making them unable to capture critical information about the state of telecommunications network assets.

    • A large amount of video can drown out critical details, making it difficult to keep up to date with individual network elements.

    Drones help monitor the network

    • The drones can produce accurate on-demand flyovers of key network elements, as well as 2D maps and 3D models of the selected telecoms network element.

    • 3D models can be used to track dynamic changes or progress day by day.

    Monitoring of network coverage quality

    • Drones can be used to check the quality of mobile network coverage, for example at mass events such as football stadiums. This allows the necessary measures to be taken in real time to implement measures to improve network performance.

  • Network development and optimisation

    Drones can be used to fine-tune the quality of very high-speed wireless connections between base stations and the operator’s backbone network when wired connections are difficult to achieve.

    Installation of antennas

    Drones help in the installation of telecommunications antennas. Once a site is selected, the drone allows telecom technicians to take various aerial shots of the selected site and visualise the various installation limitations.

    The future is connecting drones and 5G networks

    Leading players in the telecommunications industry are working to make 5G work on the next generation of drones.

    With a 5G connection, drones can communicate with a control unit on the ground and/or a data centre and transmit images from hard-to-reach areas in real time.

    A 5G network provides a stable and secure connection, in contrast to WiFi network standards.

    5G private networks and Industry 4.0

    Another solution is to connect drones to private 5G networks installed in factories, ports or other vast industrial areas. With their range and stable and secure connection, the drone’s images and data are a very important addition to the deployment of comprehensive private networks, as part of Industry 4.0.
