Strengthen Your Network and Your Operations 

You rely on your communications network to quickly transmit data crucial to your operations. Now, you need to improve insight into usage, peak loads, changes in demand, distribution rates, and other factors, while supporting initiatives for smarter, greener, and more efficient resource management.

Take Your Network to the Next Level

American Tower helps electricity, natural gas, and water providers evolve their networks and transmit more data, faster. Take advantage of our flexible network infrastructure options and expertise to support the latest industry applications and initiatives:

  • Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
  • FirstNet®
  • Smart grids and Field Area Networks (FANs)
  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
  • Telemetry

Find Taller, More Robust Towers

Upgrade to taller towers with higher radiation (RAD) centers to take your network to more remote locations.

American Tower offers more collocation opportunities on taller towers than any other provider in the U.S. All our towers, no matter where they are located, are maintained to the strictest Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standards, so you don’t have to worry about aging or decaying network infrastructure.

Think Beyond Traditional Options

Consider new ways to expand and strengthen your network:

  • Take your network right to street level, where so many utility meters are located. We offer fast and easy access to networks of smart poles that reinforce your network in the densest urban environments.
  • Build a tower exactly where you need it. We have the resources and experience to support your build every step of the way.
