Advances in telecoms structural engineering have continuously brought about structures with better suitability and reliability. One such area is in antenna mounting systems (AMSs) which ultimately attach the ancillaries to support structures and preserve the ability of ancillaries to maintain efficient signal receival and transmission and reduce inefficiency. Generally, AMSs exhibit a range of weights and configurations, and they often have unique build for specific antennas. Based on support structures, there are mast mounts, wall mounts, magnetic mounts, pole mounts, and many more. However, pole mounts are the most common of all AMSs because they offer flexibility in pole sizes and easy antenna reorientation.

The telecom structural industry may sometimes trail behind in the race for sustainability, missing out on opportunities to reduce material costs, and improve profit margins. Recently, we have seen the adoption of antenna-AMS modular configurations. More AMSs design companies have also started to redesign and optimise their mounting kits for multi-purpose usage, thereby reducing material waste, dead structural loads, and the costs of site upgrades. These developments will, in turn, assist structural designers in specifying and maintaining smaller support structure material sections, resulting in a lower carbon footprint during the construction phase and thus, construction acceleration.

As different AMS manufacturers are seeing the viability of structural sustainability, the telecoms structural industry should embrace sustainability in all pre-design and design phases of telecom structures and champion the structural engineering sector in terms of sustainability considerations.

At KA Engineering Group, we are aware of recent engineering ideals, and we are always seeking to incorporate them. We always use our extensive experience to build capacities for the future of telecom structural engineering. Get in touch at or to discuss how we can help.
