Spider platforms for the installation and maintenance of 5G antennas
The development of 5G will be mainly driven by some areas of the world like China and the United States, at least in the initial phase.
Despite the pause in the world economy imposed by the pandemic, the development of mobile technology and 5G has never stopped. By the end of this year, 4G broadband subscriptions will reach 4.7 billion, while 5G will close 2020 with 220 million subscriptions, surpassing one billion people in terms of coverage. Furthermore, even the main players in this market have not stopped, in fact all have launched a 5G compliant product on the market and the already launched subscriptions that include this service are already 50 million. In Italy, France and UK the development of 5G has already given work to many companies in the sector and not; a very involved sector was certainly the rental of aerial platforms used for the maintenance and conversion of existing antennas and above all of spider-type aerial platforms such as those produced by our company Palazzani Industrie S.p.A. The antennas are very commonly located in inaccessible and difficult sites, in the mountains, inside parks, inside historic courtyards, in places where the use of a crawler platform, with low weight and compact dimensions is strictly required.
Which aerial platform for 5G maintenance?
There is nothing more suitable than a Palazzani Spider: to be chosen in a range from 17 to 52 m in height, existing with thirty years of experience in the sector, Palazzani offers tracked spider aerial platforms, compact, reliable, technologically advanced and easy to use. Usually the mostly used Palazzani Spider Lifts involved in this application are the models from 37 to 52 meters. In addition, thanks to the application of the 500 kg hydraulic winch, which transforms the aerial platform lifting people into a small crane, there is no longer any need to bring two machines to the working site, just one is enough! All our customers working for the 5G antennas and development sector have purchased all new machines with this option. Their feedback confirms that our machines are suitable for this type of work, every day they send us positive comments and photographs of machines working in sites which are unreachable to other AWP types. Important heights, uneven ground, mud, trees, historic arches, narrow streets of historic centers, this is what our Spider Lifts often have to face to arrive and then work on a single antenna. The development of 5G will be mainly driven by some areas of the world like China and the United States, at least in the initial phase. In 2020, North America will be the region with the highest share of 5G subscriptions and by 2026 3.5 billion subscriptions are expected worldwide. We sent this informative and interesting article to suggest our Dealers to invest in this sector and to transmit the advantages, and in fact we strongly believe, thanks to the positive responses of our customers, that our Palazzani Spider is the best, safer and more profitable machine to buy for this application.
