Fit for the future – with standardised lightning protection solutions on MSC sites, always well equipped for new technologies and for enhancements to a system or building.
Mobile service/switching centres are strategically important data centres and thus central components of the recognised generations of mobile technology, such as GSM, UMTS, Long-Term Evolution (4G) up to today's fifth generation (5G). In the past, new technologies led to repeated upgrades on roof surfaces.
In order to ensure the system availability of these central data centres in the future, external lightning protection systems and earthing systems are constantly being expanded and optimised. Here, standardised lightning protection solutions simplify the integration of new and existing system technology. Pre-defined protected volumes render new lightning protection measures superfluous.
However, since the buildings at different sites vary greatly in terms of structure and equipment, maintaining the separation distances between all metal and electrical installations is a particular challenge.
