Having provided the wireless industry with real estate, engineering, construction and utility coordination services for more than a decade, Excell Communications has a unique combination of skill sets and experience to help both wireless carriers and backhaul providers expedite fiber connectivity to cellsites. Our in-house project teams have been successful at finding solutions to real estate and engineering issues common to fiber to the tower (FTTT) projects. In fact, our unified real estate + design approach helps to prevent most issues that arise when engineering firms or OSP designers do not have a thorough understanding of the concerns and processes that tower companies have regarding their tower sites. Combined with our project management methodology, the result of our approach is an organized, systematic process that quickly secures tower company approvals.
Excell’s construction division has experienced crews to perform the civil and electrical make-ready requirements. With construction experience from thousands of cellsite installations, you can have confidence that the delicate inside the compound work gets done without the issues that could arise from less experienced civil firms used to doing only ROW work. We are an approved construction vendor for every major tower company.
Additionally, we have certified fiber splicers on staff who can install the optics and pull fiber to the meet point to finalize the compound installation, usually ahead of the OSP schedule. The result is a clean hand-off to OSP crews who can splice at the meet point and immediately begin ATP procedures, never having to engage with the tower owner since the work inside the compound is complete.
Few backhaul services firms can match Excell’s experience working with carriers and tower owners, and none can provide as comprehensive a FTTT solution to simplify projects and help maintain schedule.
