Perimeter Security Systems – Cell Phone Mast Security
One of the increasingly popular applications for our perimeter security systems is to protect Mobile Phone Masts (cell phone masts or base stations). More and more phone masts are being erected all around the world and they have become a new target for theft and vandalism. According to Professor Will Stewart of the IET, the estimated number of phone masts in the UK alone in 2017 was 30,000-40,000 with a further 10-100 times more required!
Theft Of Phone Mast Batteries & Cables
Protecting mobile phone masts from human activity is something most of us would never think of. However, it is very much a reality in today’s world of communications systems. Theft of copper cable and metal from on-site cabinets is a growing problem, as is the theft of the special, large mast batteries which operators have to install. Therefore, effective perimeter security for cell phone masts including intruder detection is more important than ever.
In addition, there is the consideration of the valuable communications traffic which passes through these masts and base stations at any given time. This traffic needs just as much protection because any interruptions to those communications could be very damaging.
