Wildlife can be a close second to causing damage at communication sites. How often do you check your sites for damage and perform preventative maintenance? For some reason porcupines and other animals love to sharpen their teeth on antenna feed lines and various equipment . If sites are left unchecked at regular intervals you may not notice any issues until that failover link is needed and fails. Feed lines are notorious for developing issues that may not appear until bad weather or heavy rains. If caught early, minor repairs can be implemented to mitigate higher costs down the road of a full replacement of costly feed lines. Call Bressler Communication Consultants to perform these site visits for you and recommend the correct course of action.
Storm season is upon us, are your sites prepared? When we begin to think of communications and storm season, most people naturally gravitate to envision tower sites. However, there are numerous other critical communication infrastructure points that need to be protected. Lightning and surges can enter communication systems from a host of paths. It is absolutely critical to ensure that ALL paths are protected and isolated to minimize damage and system downtime. Bressler Communication Consultants can conduct a system audit to help identify critical failpoints and make recommendations to help minimize system downtime. Nothing is foolproof but with planning and the correct approach to system builds, hardware failure can be kept to a minimum.
