With these questions, organisations regularly approach Cellnex. As an important European player in the field of wireless telecommunications infrastructure, connectivity is one of our specialties.
Originally, our 24 media towers facilitate the broadcasting of signals for television and radio. Our knowledge of radio frequencies dates from that time. Meanwhile, technology and equipment have kept on developing, and there are many new options and solutions.
Back to the questions whether there is an alternative if there is no proper internet connection available, or if the internet connection is much too expensive? Yes, in many cases there certainly is! In the form of a radio link.
To set up a properly functioning radio link, a number of prerequisites have to be met. Cellnex starts with a feasibility study for all client requests. The following aspects are under review:
With regard to this last point, there are two options:
A radio link enables you to safely transport data. Besides all other measures to protect your data which you have in place already, the equipment we use meet specific security standards and provide the option to encrypt your data.
Cellnex provides the complete implementation of each project from beginning to end. From advice and design to implementation and management and the application of the required permits.
In contrast with the installation of a fiberglass connection, radio links can be set up on short notice and can be realised very quickly.
For monitoring and management, clients can choose from a basic, premium, and premium+ package. The response times vary from best effort to 24/7 availability.
With the current digital transformation it becomes increasingly crucial to not only transport and access data securely, but also to securely store and process data. As one of the few, Cellnex is capable to serve clients on all fields of this so-called ‘data ecosystem’. The 24 media towers of Cellnex not only have a broadcast function but are also the perfect environment for datacenters with the highest uptime levels. Because of the large height of the media towers, clients making use of our datacenters cannot only choose fiberglass connectivity, but also a radio link between their office building and the datacenter in the tower. If you choose both options, the connection guarantee is even 99.999%.

Setting up a (number of) radio link(s) is not only a good option for business broadband internet, but also for IoT applications and Smart Cities. Cellnex already has extensive experience with building a new generation of networks and likes to think along with you about new applications!
