MSRDC installs mobile signal transmitter on bridges, flyovers
BRIDGING THE GAP: Living in a city peppered with flyovers, has meant living with call drops for Mumbaikars. But not for much longer. Flyovers and bridges in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane, which are notorious 'dead spots' for mobile phone networks, are now being fitted with signal-transmitting equipment to prevent call drops. Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) director (environment) and project in-charge P K Das said, "Instances of call drops are high along flyovers, mainly due to the height. The transmission equipment will help boost the signal strength." Shiv Shankar Lature, managing director of Suyog Telematics, the company handling the installations, promised that call drops on flyovers and bridges would become history with the new transmission equipment. "All 32 flyovers in Mumbai will be covered. Of these, the Vashi and Airoli bridges are the most crucial since they have never been covered by cellphone companies," he said.
Using street lights Since it is not possible to erect the usual network towers atop flyovers and bridges, MSRDC allowed the installation of transmission equipment atop street light poles. "The equipment is advanced in nature. It does not require the cumbersome power supply equipment unlike the traditional tower units," said Lature.Installation work has been completed on 22 flyovers.
For future projects This technology is also being used to overcome transmission difficulty along all future infrastructure projects including the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, metro rail and monorail. The absence of this equipment would have made things very difficult for cell phone users.
A BTS may cover an area of 30 - 40 sq kms. However, in a congested, urban location, the BTS coverage area is much smaller. BTS can be considered as complex radio modems and have little other function. A list of hardware located at a cell site includes power sources, interface equipment, radio frequency transmitters and receivers, and antenna systems .

Serviceability and poor service network of existing vendor
Single vendor for such application which is a major concern for SCM team in value buying.
Basic unit cost & downtime cost
All such installations face problem of UPS going on By pass mode in every case of power cut even if batteries are fully charged and need to be reset by operator’s man power (load noted at this event is 6amps max by operators)
Within a week every such installation of delta face shutdown which increase downtime for such sites (reason unidentified )
Ups o/p MCB’s (load side mcb’s ) trips at least once in every 2days (reason unidentified)
False alarm indications at multiple times in 24x7x365 operations (probable reason could be RS232 interface)
