Since it is not possible to erect regular network towers, etc. atop flyovers/bridges, we have spearheaded the concept of Poles for telecom infrastructure. We are engaged in taking up Pole Erection Service for our clients.
We have provided a number of Poles and Infrastructure on lease over several MSRDC Flyovers, Bandra-Worli Sea Link Project, MMRDA Flyovers as well as Skywalks in and around Mumbai, and have also installed BTS equipments on poles for the telecom service providers.
Further, we have also started working on the concept of installing BTS on Poles in local areas where there is severe traffic and congestion in collaboration with the local Police Authorities, whereby we shall install poles in places such as Check Naka’s, Cinema Halls and shall also install CCTV Cameras for the Police Department in such Poles in order to help them with their surveillance mechanisms.
As on June 30, 2013, we had a portfolio of 301 owned Poles in and around Mumbai. Clients using our poles infrastructure include Airtel, Idea Cellular, Vodafone, Tata Teleservices, Aircel and Loop Mobile.
Additionally, we have also installed a total of 229 Poles on job work basis for Reliance Infocomm Engg. Pvt. Ltd. (100), Vodafone Essar Ltd. (54) and Bharti Airtel Ltd. (75).
