THE CUTTING EDGE OF WIRELESS
Pike Telecom serves the ever-changing needs of the wireless industry. Our extensive communications capabilities allow us to effectively work with all key stakeholders to design and construct small cell and distributed antenna systems (DAS) as well as cellular tower services. Serving the industry’s leading wireless providers, we have completed the design and implementation of more than 12,000 nodes in both rural and urban areas, including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Raleigh and Washington, D.C.
OUR WIRELESS EXPERIENCE COVERS ALL TYPES OF NETWORK UPGRADES
While some of our wireless projects cover new installations, an increasing share of customers look to us to provide smart network upgrades. When one of the largest wireless carriers in the U.S. wanted to improve network coverage and resiliency in southern Florida, its team turned to Pike Telecom. We designed and engineered a large distributed antenna system (DAS) network to deliver fast, reliable service.
Project preparation required the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to locate existing utilities, as well as fiber design, structural analysis, route planning and third-party licensing. Comprehensive project management was necessary throughout the design and construction phases. Special DOT permits were also obtained for intercoastal waterway and railroad crossings.
The customized system designed by Pike Telecom enhanced network coverage and resiliency with a 110-mile underground fiber and conduit network extending to over 500 wireless nodes.
