Solutions for Complex Macro Projects

To maximize line-of-sight coverage, macro-cells must be located high above the area they serve. We can handle sites with any antenna height requirements. A new macro deployment presents a series of challenges—from site acquisition and development, to design and engineering, to construction and testing. In built-up areas with high network demand, maintaining capacity and signal quality is also challenging.

Having seen through over 3,000+ macro projects, including 600+ macro new builds, SQUAN is well placed to meet these challenges.

End-to-End Macro Project Management

SQUAN’s expertise streamlines each stage of the macro deployment process.

  • During site acquisition, SQUAN identifies real estate that meets or exceeds search criteria, negotiates leases, and manages the land use approval process.
  • During design, in-house RF engineers and project managers work with technicians to benchmark, design, install, test, and optimize the macro-cell solution. RF engineers also select and commission equipment.
  • SQUAN takes construction projects through to full turnkey civil installation, constructing tower foundation pads, concrete equipment rooms, welding, steel fabrication, and finishing work. We also handle building permits and Directive 14 certifications.
  • SQUAN provides antenna and line installation and modifications, testing, troubleshooting, and on-site optimization by RF engineers.
  • With over 50 certified OSHA technicians and no lost-time accidents in over five years, SQUAN boasts an exceptional safety record.
  • When maintenance and troubleshooting are needed, SQUAN offers industry-leading response times and 24/7 emergency maintenance and repair service.
