azeti: How to protect your sites from theft of fuel and equipment
azeti Networks report on their roundtable at the TowerXchange Meetup
During the TowerXchange Meetup at the beginning of October in South Africa, azeti Networks had a unique chance to discuss best practices in fuel security with market experts from the African tower business. Among the participants were professionals from RMS and Managed Service companies, towercos, as well as representatives from companies specialised in fuel delivery, site security and power supply.
As the demand for mobile services increases steadily around the world, the telecom industry is facing certain challenges regarding the power supply of towers. Running a BTS in densely populated areas with full access to a power grid is in most cases unproblematic, but the whole story changes in remote places, where power supply is unsteady (unreliable grid) or is not given at all (non-grid).
