Complete Remote Cell Tower Monitoring System

If you are part of the telecom industry, you know that cell towers are one of the most important parts of a good quality of service. These towers are distributed over multiple different remote sites. So, to maintain a superior quality of service to your end-users, you need a tower alarm system.

These alarm systems eliminate the challenges of manually monitoring telecom towers. Since they are spread out across various locations, efficiently managing all of them used to be a major challenge. Also, the towers are not the only asset that needs to be monitored, you also have beacon lights, generators, etc.

With a remote monitoring system, you'll get a detailed and comprehensive view of the entire cell tower infrastructure.

Effective, easy-to-install, light-capacity tower alarm monitoring

The Complete tower monitoring system (CTMS) is a durable, customizable, light-capacity tower monitoring solution. The CTMS is designed for easy installation at remote tower sites. Why? This makes it cost-effective to seamlessly deploy powerful alarm monitoring throughout your entire telecom network.
