Data utilisation is a pressing challenge for towercos in a time of change
Preliminary findings from Analysys Mason’s leadership of the data collection and utilisation working group
TowerXchange are delighted that Analysys Mason has kindly agreed to take over our data collection and utilisation working group. The working group emerged from several successive round tables at past TowerXchange Meetups, initially focusing on remote monitoring systems, then site management and asset management systems, before combining these areas into an holistic discussion of the flow of data from sites into repositories and visualisation platforms. Contributed by Caroline Gabriel, a Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason, this article combined insights gleaned from several vendor and towerco interviews, and from the data collection and utilisation working group meeting moderated by Caroline at the TowerXchange Meetup Europe, April 2019.
