Telecom and Cell Tower Monitoring
AggreGate is an all-in-one solution for centralized monitoring of cell tower infrastructure. Tibbo's multi-year experience in M2M and telemetry market, as well as off-the-shelf solutions for industial automation and IT management, help us solving the most sophisticated objectives raised by tower operators. Our solutions are perfectly suitable for multi-tenant cell tower infrastructures that benefit from sharing tower services between multiple service providers.
Tower management solution offers remote control, monitoring and management for power, fuel, security, access control, video surveillance, cabinet environment, and BTS equipment. It offers local and centralized usage statistics storage, flexible processing and automatic model-based decision making, advanced infrastructure visualization, and northbound NOC integration.
AggreGate provides real-time monitoring and performance optimization analytics tower power units. Those units normally handle complicated switching logic maintaining balance between usage of grid power, genset, solar panels, wind turbine, and accumulated energy.
Tower's local AggreGate Server can connect to power controller and rectifier of any type via standard protocols or custom device drivers. AggreGate Distributed Architecture helps tower mini-servers to choose between:
Remote setpoint control, switching rules adjustment, usage metrics reporting, power efficiency analytics, centralized power status visualization and real-time power failure alerting – that's the outcome you should expect.
Diesel fuel monitoring is evidently crucial for ensuring uninterruptible tower equipment operation. AggreGate can:
Security and Access Control
Unattended telecom tower sites are often located in remote areas with higher criminal risks. Diesel fuel and expensive telecom equipment may become a target for theft. AggreGate provides centralized tower security supervision and access control to protect from external threats.
Security supervision may include door contact sensors, motion detectors, perimeter security devices combined together to maximize effect. Shelters and equipment cabinets may have separate 2nd level security contour. All security events may be bound to video recordings.
Tower video surveillance system is a very specific video monitoring system that's tailored to performing short recordings upon important events. Those recordings are stored locally and forwarded to the NOC on best effort basis. Inexpensive recorders with analog cameras can also be used in most cases.
Internal shelter and cabinet environment is crucial for uninterrupted tower service. Equipped with many sensors, tower environment controllers report temperature/humidity readings and various alerts (such as flooding alerts or gas/smoke alerts) to the NOC. Cooling, heating and ventilation equipment failures are reported as well.
Similarly to all other alerts, environment alerts can be aligned to dynamic baselines and make use of different thresholds at different escalation levels.
GSM/UMTS/LTE Equipment Monitoring
Tower controller can establish SNMP connections to GSM/UMTS/LTE equipment for collecting health/performance metrics, including voltages, fan status, card/module/interface statistics, and much more.
Tenant-specific readings collected from cellular equipment are integrated into overall network map.
NOC Dashboards and Maps
AggreGate IoT Platform provides industry-best processing and visualization for your tower network. Integrated visual editors ensure rapid development of a company-specific operator interface that includes status dashboards, alert dashboards, geographical maps with drill-down capabilities and tower-to-tower link visualization, and more.
Service Desk Integration
AggreGate can convert certain alerts into incidents that will be dispatched within AggreGate Service Desk or any other trouble ticketing system. Technicians can access the Service Desk in the field from their smartphones. The incidents are enriched with all relevant asset information and auto-closed if originating alert condition is void.
