TELECOM SITE DEVELOPMENT

WHAT IS TSD?

Telecom site development or Telecom TSD is the process of designing, planning, procuring, and completion of broadband and wireless sites.

Telecom Site Development is where BDC Group got our start. At BDC Group, we strive to provide our partners with comprehensive products and services for any project. Our portfolio of products and services can be mixed and matched to create solution packages that can fit any size scope of work.

This includes new and used precast concrete shelters, site and equipment refurbishment or decommissioning, general construction, project management and so much more.

SITE CONSTRUCTION AND INSTALLATION

BDC understands that customers are under immense pressure to get infrastructure projects completed quickly, reliably, and under budget. We can offer general contracting services with turnkey solutions to help telecom infrastructure projects get done on time and on budget, while maintaining quality workmanship.

BENEFITS OF NEW:

By purchasing a new precast shelter, you have endless customization options to meet unique specifications, including fabricating a structure at a specific size to meet your exact needs. This is ideal for the consumer in a situation where specific size limitations are key and you can’t find that perfect shelter in the current marketplace, especially with limited options.

BENEFITS OF SURPLUS:

BDC Group can offer procurement and full restoration services for any surplus shelter. Restored shelters undergo rigorous inspection and specific maintenance options. All shelters can be customized o your liking to keep your vital telecommunications equipment running 24/, avoiding any down time.

HIGH-GRADE STEEL PLATFORM

Some projects and sites may not need a full precast concrete shelter to house their equipment. BDC Group has heard our customers and partners need for a cost effective, alternative solution to telecom shelters and has engineered an exclusive high-grade steel platform design in response.

This steel platform design can be completely customized, mass produced and shipped anywhere in the nation for use in broadband wireless systems, fiber regeneration or even emergency deployment situations. Each unit is rigorously tested in-house to ensure each part meets our high-quality standards and regulations, and then is ready for immediate deployment.

High-Grade Steel Platform advantages:

  • Equipment mounted & fully protected.
  • Avoid expensive transport & logistics costs.
  • 60-70% savings on overall costs.
  • Reduced deployment & lead times on telecom projects.

Our team will also reduce risks by coordinating and preparing your site prior to delivery and managing all communications with each party involved (drivers, cranes, riggers, permits, etc.)

POWER EQUIPMENT

It’s no secret that efficient power equipment is critical to any telecom site. Having clean and constant power equipment is vital to ensure infrastructure never suffers any downtime. If the DC power plant experiences power failure or loss of connection, a breakdown in operational production and employee’s ability to perform manual jobs. Any loss of efficiency or failure in power equipment can be costly, both in dollars and time.

BDC Group Inc. offers a large and diverse inventory of power equipment to meet the exact requirements of your power systems. Our OEM partnerships allow us to meet existing DC power plant and telecom systems specifications, and we’re proud to be able to offer power supply support for mobile and fixed systems alike. BDC Group Inc. will help you find the right rectifier and auxiliary power components for your needs.

BDC Generator

GENERATORS

Having a backup generator on site and ready to take over in an emergency is important. When other energy sources are temporarily down, it doesn’t mean a telecom site has to be down as well. If a cities power grid fails, other power sources are down, or natural disasters occur, a backup generator can keep network infrastructure and equipment up and running.

BDC Group has partnerships with the top manufacturers in the industry to carry a variety of industrial generators that can be used for stand-by, primary or secondary power solutions.

Generator models:

  • New Diesel
  • Used Diesel
  • Liquid Propane (LP)
  • Natural Gas

DECOMMISSIONING

As the need for data centers and overall upgrades increase in the coming years, having qualified decommissioning and restoration experts will become vital to any planned infrastructure project. Our decommissioning services can be utilized for shelters, generators, towers, data centers, and more.

BDC Group Inc. can offer exclusive decommissioning turn-key services to help you streamline the entire decommission process including:

  • Site analysis
  • End-to-end project management
