CONSTRUCTION & BIM


first responders and blue light services will be less able to efficiently manage an incident, and 999 calls will be compromised. This could potentially put lives at risk.


Viable connectivity options are needed So, what are the available options to construction companies looking to establish seamless mobile connectivity on their respective construction sites? Providing Wi-Fi to a redevelopment project that starts out as a giant hole in the ground is unfeasible because of the long timescales involved. Furthermore, most construction sites only require temporary connectivity and once a project is completed most installed communications infrastructures become obsolete.


“With 5G on the horizon and


competition fierce, the construction industry is being forced to rethink many of its business strategies.”


What is needed is the ability to take the outside network into construction site buildings super-quickly using easy- to-install mobile repeater systems and technologies. Historically this has been an arduous process because of complex rules surrounding their usage, resulting in contraband installations, which, if detected, resulted in a hefty fine.

Mobile repeater rules have changed Fortunately, since a relaxation to the mobile repeater rules in 2018, satisfying the mobile coverage requirements of large construction companies is much more straightforward. Installations can be rolled out in days, using out of the box systems that is readily available. The only caveat is that said systems must meet stringent criteria stipulated by Ofcom and not many do. The Cel-Fi by Nextivity product range is one option that does satisfy all requirements, making it legal to use on all existing mobile 3G and 4G networks.


Digital construction cannot afford to


wait for 5G There is no denying the impact 5G is anticipated to have on the construction industry. When it eventually goes mainstream it will trigger a surge in the number of IoT enabled technologies installed on any given site to facilitate Smart Construction. However, widescale proliferation of 5G is still a long way off and likely to be delayed further by the Huawei situation.


Robust mobile networks and reliable mobile connectivity are needed today to power existing IoT applications as well as for regular and safety critical communications. 4G is a mature network proven to satisfy all current digital construction and safety critical communications requirements. A bigger concern right now is the speed at which existing infrastructures can be rolled out to construction companies and the associated costs involved.
