Wooden structured telecommunications tower for the complete mobile network coverage

Project description

Wooden telecom towers to steal the show

Mobile and wireless broadband network operators need communication towers to place the equipment they use to transmit data. In Europe today, there are 300 000 towers and the number will grow as mobile broadband speeds accelerate and data volumes increase. The more towers constructed, the faster the roll out of wireless broadband network expansion and upgrade. The EU-funded Wooden Tower project will bring to market the Ecopol – a wooden tower with a small carbon footprint (less than half of the equivalent steel towers). Prototypes for 3G and 4G technologies are currently being tested in Hungary. By 2023, the project and the Finnish coordinator Ecotelligent aim to become the first wooden tower provider on the European market.
