Coillte today announced a two year contract with a potential value of E250,000 with 4Site Telecoms to help boost its offering to Network Mobile Operators.
The contract involves design and planning services for telecom towers across the Coillte estate.
Coillte operates over 400 site locations for the telecoms sector representing the largest portfolio of telecom sites in Ireland.
"Our nationwide telecom sites portfolio across many elevated locations is a unique asset as telecom operators look to roll out next generation networks including 4G / LTE. In addition, the industry is moving towards increased collaboration rather than duplicating towers. Our deal with 4Site telecoms will enhance our services to existing and new telecom customers," commented Padraig O'Donoghue, Director of Innovation, Coillte.
4Site will support Coillte in managing and upgrading its tower portfolio so as to maximise revenue. 4Site Telecoms will provide full site design and planning services for the existing portfolio including the implementation of safety and compliance measures to ensure conformance to regulations.
Ian Duggan, Managing Director of 4Site said: "Coillte has a major opportunity with LTE (Long Term Evolution) and network upgrades coming on-stream and the potential for new tenants on its infrastructure. We were selected against stiff competition. As Ireland's leading independently owned specialist consultancy in this sector, 4Site is well placed to deliver exceptional value to Coillte during a time of significant change in the telecoms industry. With our attention to detail and comprehensive regional knowledge we are confident that Coillte will realise significant benefits from our relationship."
