Future Technologies completes another specialty site deployment via the pictured Water Tank re-location in the South East region for a tier 1 carrier. Future Technologies Network Build team worked with our tier 1 carrier customer on an expedited basis to remove an existing cell site off a water tank that required maintenance. We deployed a Cell on Wheels (COW) solution to put site back into service and once the utility completed the rehabilitation project on the Water Tank our team re-deployed to install the 4G LTE site back on to the water tank and put the site back into service.

 

Future Technologies delivers these solutions to our customers based upon these key components:

 

  • Experience: Future Technologies has delivered over 200 specialty deployments in the last few years

  • In House Resources: Future Technologies self-performs all of this specialty work with W-2 trained and specialized employees

  • End to End Approach: Future Technologies completes the survey, site plan, initial deployment, final deployment, integration and site clean up to make it simple for our customers

  • Team: Future Technologies has a specialized project team that focuses on these complex deployments to execute these projects efficiently and with safety

 

Please feel free to reach out to us with any emergency deployments, disaster recovery, Cell on Wheels (COWs), Tower on Wheels (TOWs) and any forced relocations (Tower or Rooftop).

Future Technologies was happy to host one of our large multi-national Oil and Gas customers for a 2-day technical workshop to discuss best practices for connectivity in their digital oil fields with a Cambium Networks solution. Through Future Technologies’ investment into our state-of-the-art lab and training center (pictured below), we were able to duplicate the end-customer’s licensed microwave (Cambium PTP820C-HP) and point-to-multipoint wireless solution (Cambium Medusa).  

 FT is uniquely positioned to combine theory/classroom training, detailed network planning, best practices and hands on installation training all at one location. As a result of this capability we are able to work with our customers to discuss the whole deployment lifecycle including:

 

·         Conceptual Network Design

·         RF Planning

·         Detailed Network Design / Configuration Planning

·         Project Planning / Schedule Creation

·         Installation Standards Document Creation

·         Close Out Package Document Creation

·         Network Testing Procedures

Spending a couple of days virtually in the customer’s network as a team allows us to be more aware of requirements, issues and challenges.  Working together in a controlled environment to PLAN & EXECUTE project objectives is the most efficient way to achieve the desired results, which is a high performance, reliable and secure network.

"What is it you do?" 

I often get asked this question at trade shows and other venues.  If you look at our website and some of our marketing materials, I'm not surprised when I'm asked this because we do a lot!  Being an end-to-end systems integrator requires us to be subject matter experts across multiple markets and technologies. 

Today's complex networks require expertise in many areas that just a few years ago were not factors (private LTE is a good example).  When you participate in as many markets as we do (Utility, Oil & Gas, Rail, Federal, Mining, Service Provider, etc.), and provide all the solutions we provide, it is easy for the message of our mission to get lost. 

My simple answer to "What is it you do?" is, we solve problems.  Is there something that your company doesn't want to do, doesn't know how to do or can't do cost effectively?  Talk to us.  We’ve got a world class team we will put to work for you. 

We solve problems.
