Featured Project: Gigabit Substation for IoT

MiEnergy Cooperative

PCS Technologies has been serving clients across American with IoT services for more than 20 years. This is one of our case studies.

The Client:

MiEnergy Cooperative

The Challenge:

Client requested a complex solution for a variety of issues. These included the connection of substations by designing and building Tower Structures. It also involved providing line-of-sight for the operation of gigabit microwave with an average path distance of 12 Miles. 

PCS was also brought on board to design the network for gigabit ethernet service at a high availability. Our team designed the tower structures to support additional loading for Public Safety and Fixed Wireless Access Services. PCS Technologies constructed 7 new towers (monopoles and self-support towers) and 9 microwave paths. 

Pre-Construction services included the flying of a drone to confirm line-of-sight for the radio paths. PCS Technologies engineered the Microwave using Ceragon IP-20C 11 GHz Microwave radios. Our team also provided structural engineering support and performed a self-support tower beef up and height extension of 20 feet.

The Solution:

To help this client achieve their goals, we created a comprehensive scope of services:

  • Microwave Link Planning and Line of Sight Analysis.
  • Structure Loading
  • Site Design and project management.
