The customer needed to resolve a series of critical issues such as limited information about the location and volumes of the assets that make up the network, lengthy and costly maintenance activities, and the failure to account for economic flows relative to the infrastructure elements.

Cell Tower – AI solution was the platform provided to facilitate the acquisition of new field data through drones and smartphones, process the digital twin of the infrastructure, take measurements and remotely verify the state of the assets, enrich the database, and automatically recognize devices through artificial intelligence, up to the creation of customized technical reports.

For this use case, New Changer Tech addressed the main problems encountered by the customers in the decision-making phase, supporting them in the mapping and inspection of over 14,000 assets of a wireless infrastructure network spread over a large area in 4 different countries.
