Alternative and Renewable Energy
PWC, Inc. has made the educational investment to certify in-house technicians in alternative & renewable energy solutions. This training resulted in immediate on-site wireless facility opportunities with two of the nation’s largest renewable energy companies. Since then, PWC, Inc. has become well versed in the installation & maintenance of hydrogen fuels cells and solar systems. With today’s global environmental concerns, the long-term savings of alternative fuel, and because of the proven efficiency & reliability of renewable energy, wireless carriers are moving away from traditional sources of power. The future will rely upon fewer diesel generators & propane systems in new site builds, coupled with the removal & replacement of such power sources, the installation of hydrogen fuels cells and solar systems will become the preferred energy source. PWC, Inc. understands that this technology is opportunity, so we will continue the quest of enhancing the global environment one installation at a time.
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS)
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) is a reasonably new way to deploy wireless networks. The premise is a shared infrastructure that allows carrier’s networks to expand by adding coverage in areas such as residential neighborhoods, canyons & passes, indoor buildings & facilities, public venues and those regions that are jurisdictionally challenging. DAS solutions compliment traditional network macro sites by filling in coverage gaps with aesthetically pleasing small antenna systems. The real upside to DAS is that it’s not as capital intensive and typically sidesteps significant site development hurdles. Our team has partnered with key neutral host providers to assist in community outreach & education. We have expedited permitting, built fiber backhaul, constructed site nodes and deployed Distributed Antenna Systems. You will not find another contractor with the combination of wireless experience, in-house underground resources, and overall capability of PWC, Inc. We understand the utter importance of DAS now.
