Unlocking the co-location potential of police network infrastructure
BCTEK is leasing up a portfolio of 700 towers across all 36 Nigerian states
Public safety networks are often untapped sources of potential value for the telecom tower industry, while the commercialisation of these networks can be an untapped source of revenue for government agencies. Public safety networks are necessarily extremely secure and reliable, and can offer coverage in prime metropolitan areas. In Nigeria, BCTEK have a unique business model which involves leasing up 700 towers built by the police as a surveillance network. Acting CEO Peter Audu, a veteran of the Nigerian tower industry, explained to TowerXchange how BCTEK has partnered with government, and where they’ve found the strongest demand for co-locations on this unique network.
