Extend Your Mission-Critical Network

Mission-critical wireless infrastructure is imperative for government agencies that serve and protect the public. But, budget constraints and the time it takes to develop new tower sites can make network upgrades challenging.

Enhance Public Safety Communications

At American Tower, our mission is to support your mission—whether you’re expanding coverage for a Land Mobile Radio (LMR) network, upgrading a regional or statewide public safety broadband network, or developing a new federal wireless network.

Our dedicated government and public safety team partners with you to enhance your communications network in the way that makes the most sense for your mandate and financial realities.

Find new sites to accommodate your equipment, shelters, backup generators, and fuel tanks:

  • Collocate on one of our more than 40,000 towers to accelerate network expansion. We have thousands of tall self-supported and guyed towers, as well as high rooftops, ideal for LMR network use.
  • Let us help find sites with the structures, fiber and telecom providers, and interior building space you need.
  • Rely on our structural team to check available capacity before you apply, and on our Radio Frequency (RF) engineers to help confirm your propagation assumptions.
  • Partner with American Tower to build a new tower that meets your financial and coverage requirements.
  • Simplify your operations with our fully monitored, managed, and maintained backup generators.

Extend Federal Law Enforcement

Find taller towers with interior building space to extend communications networks for federal law enforcement programs.

American Tower has far more high-elevation, mountain-top, and ridgeline sites in prime and hard-to-access locations than any other company, so your agency can cover more area with fewer sites.

We work closely with you to find sites with the right combination of location, infrastructure, structural capacity, and facilities. We can also help with challenges, such as managing electricity accounts, maintaining shelters, and operating backup generators.

Stay Within Budget

Engage us early in your design process to reduce build-out timelines and siting cost for multisite networks.

We understand you are a not-for-profit organization and have very different financial realities than mobile network operators. Let us provide a free consultation to explain how we can help you complete projects ahead of schedule and under budget:

  • Detailed RF and Geographic Information Service (GIS) site data lets you intelligently narrow your search and avoid unnecessary application fees
  • Local field technicians help you evaluate potential sites to make informed decisions
  • Technical teams help you evaluate loading scenarios to minimize space requirements and reduce overall life-cycle costs
  • In-house architectural and engineering teams accelerate civil site-design timelines and reduce the cost of drawings

When Leasing Makes Sense

Attractive leasing bundles let you shift capital costs to operating costs. This is often the best option, if you receive funding over time instead of in a lump sum. Now, you can match payment timing to funding timing. And, you can start using new sites right away.
