China Independent Tower Alliance creates unified voice to drive industry cooperation, standardisation and influence
Private towercos looking to leverage strength in numbers to thrive alongside state-giant China Tower Corporation
China’s independent tower industry reached a major milestone this summer through the creation of the China Independent Tower Alliance (CITA). Buoyed by a key government document released in the Spring and under the leadership of the Communications Network Operation and Maintenance Committee (COMC) of the China Association of Communication Enterprises (CACE), independent towercos of all sizes have banded together to create a unified voice. TowerXchange participated in the formation of CITA and is the first in English media to report exclusively on CITA details.
The China Independent Tower Alliance (CITA) was inaugurated on 30 June, 2017, created under the leadership and guidance of the Communications Network Operation and Maintenance Committee (COMC) and in partnership with private towercos, telecom infrastructure builders, equipment and service providers, design consulting firms, academic and research institutes, and more.
