Rigging for Telecommunications 

Rigging is the process of moving, stabilizing, and securing a payload while using the proper mechanical shifting gear. Riggers utilize tools like cranes and hoists or other equipment like chain blocks and winch systems to move a load. A rigger must take into account a variety of considerations when transferring a load, which can be a complicated process. Before lifting an object, they must be aware of the most precise and safest manner to move it. This is necessary for a wide variety of industries when large, heavy, and oddly shaped things need to be moved, and telecommunications is no exception.

Telecommunications rigging is the application of these same principles within the telecom industry. Installing, maintaining, and repairing telecommunications equipment are all responsibilities of a telecommunications rigger. This can entail setting up and keeping up communication systems like telephone and internet cables, in particular the large towers, antennas, and other equipment that allow for the transmission of data. For modern life to function well, telecommunications equipment must be maintained, and a rigger for telecommunications is a critical component.

Functions of Telecommunications Rigging Companies

Telecommunications rigging can be involved in various stages of telecom operations. There are three main areas where Murphy Rigging most often provides services.

Telecommunications Setup

The setting up of any device, mechanism, building, tower, antenna, tunnel, manhole, pit, or hole used, or intended for use, in connection with a telecommunication service is referred to as a telecommunication installation. For telecommunications rigging companies, telecom building is primarily the moving and setup of the large, heavy parts of this network.

Telecommunications Maintenance

All current communications traffic goes through a physical medium called telecommunications infrastructure. This comprises phone lines, cables (including undersea cables), satellites, microwaves, and mobile devices like fifth-generation (5G) mobile networks, as well as the towers and antennas that support them. Telecom maintenance is the upkeep and improvement of this infrastructure.

Telecommunications Decommissioning

Decommissioning a telecommunications network involves shutting down and removing any outdated network and associated cables, switches, and other network hardware, as well as the large components that support this network, such as towers, poles, and antennas.

Specific aspects of telecommunications rigging work include the following;

  • Installing telecommunications equipment and cable
  • Tower-mounted equipment installation, relocation, and removal
  • Using cherry pickers, cranes, and MEWPs when needed
  • Working at a height to install antennas, feeds, and associated equipment on a variety of telecommunications structures, such as poles, towers, and masts
