SEIKEY Enterprise Drone Solutions

Cell Tower Inspections 4G and 5G I Caronno Pertusella, Varese, Italy SEIKEY technological partner of Telecom Italia initiated a data capture and reality modeling project to standardize the inspection of Italy’s 11,800 radio base stations (RBS) and accelerate information exchange among stakeholders for improved plant maintenance and asset management. The 3D real-time modeling approach optimized maintenance and inspection activities, enhancing signal strength of RBS facilities for more effective phone coverage from the operators.

The project team used drones for high-precision aerial capturing of the stations to perform the inspections in just six hours compared to five days per facility. ContextCapture enabled a detailed photogrammetric reconstruction from more than 400 terabytes of data for each plant.
