Outdoor Telecom Networks

We are your experts in the deployment and ongoing support of large-scale, specialized outdoor networks.

Outdoor Telecom Network Lifecycle Services

Route Planning And Engineering

Modern broadband and mobile networks require deployment of deep fiber, HFC (Hybrid Fiber-Coax Network), and node equipment on poles and structures. Without proper route planning and engineering, the chances of cost overruns and poor performance greatly increase. We have studied route feasibility, engineered and permitted hundreds of network route miles across many major U.S. markets. In cases of Small Cell networks, we offer a rare combination of RF and fiber infrastructure expertise.

Spreading high-performance broadband across the world

iBISS®, IMMCO’s advanced GIS-based digital network mapping, collaboration, and workflow platform, to improve the efficiency of the buildout of a fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) project that will provide high-performance broadband to hundreds of thousands of Australian residences.

IMMCO’s iBISS® platform will improve the accuracy, speed and quality of the complex field of data collection and construction processes involved in completing an advanced FTTP network. The platform will bring hundreds of personnel, from field survey technicians and network engineers to project leadership, real-time access to network and design data.

iBISS® was developed and optimized for today’s outdoor telecom networks and technologies. It places outdoor telecom network construction maps on digital tablets instead of paper, preventing paper-based delays and allowing for instant online field-to-engineering collaboration. It is also equipped with numerous productivity-enhancing tools including virtual-infrastructure overlays on street view, photo and video capture for documentation or escalation to the engineering design team and measurement tools to eliminate the need for wheeling or laser-range finding.

Route Planning & Engineering Service Options:

  • RFiber capacity planning
  • RField assessment to validate construction method, pathways and cable footages
  • RCAD designs for permitting and pre-construction of aerial and underground facilities

Network Performance Analysis

From transport to end user, we have provided Network Performance Analysis for dozens of regional broadband and mobile networks, which span thousands of route miles in urban, suburban and rural areas. Our engineers are trained to deliver in depth analysis of network performance and correct any performance issue identified.

Outdoor Telecom Network Construction

If you are seeking a national partner to complete small or large outdoor telecom network construction projects, we can deliver. Since our inception, we’ve built over 5,000 miles of new coaxial and fiber networks.

We maintain a well-managed fleet of heavy construction equipment and tools to install, splice, terminate and test network infrastructure. We perform cable system testing and certification in-house, including fiber characterization, PIM analysis and RF sweep testing.

Outdoor Network Construction Service Options:

  • RAerial Placement
  • RUtility Pole Make Ready
  • RUnderground Construction
  • RTrench
  • RPlow
  • RBore
  • RHFC Network Buildout
  • RFiber, PIM and Sweep Testing

Maintenance, Repair And Emergency Restoration

Whether your system needs ongoing maintenance services or a one-time network tune-up, we can help you to prevent costly network issues or emergency restoration with our full suite of services tailored for mobile, broadband and municipal fiber providers.

We are vastly experienced in planning and rapid mobilization to ensure that carrier-class networks are quickly restored to meet subscriber expectations. We are routinely a carrier’s first call for aerial and underground restoration services following a natural disaster.

Outdoor Telecom Network Solution Offers


What do FTTH, HFC, Small Cell, smart city and other modern infrastructure applications require? A partner with the personnel, tools, equipment and safety practices to engineer, construct and support OSP fiber networks across challenging environments. Over our 25 year history, we’ve built thousands of new fiber miles and maintained existing networks exceeding 10,000 sheath miles. Not only have we expanded fiber networks for new service launch, we’ve built county-wide fiber networks from the ground up. We have provided fiber engineering and construction services to wireline and wireless operators, municipalities and neutral host providers, so we have a thorough understanding of best practices for installation and quality.

Fiber Solution Options:

  • RRight-of-way engineering for fiber and pathway placement
  • RCAD design packages
  • RPermitting with local and state agencies
  • RUnderground construction by trench, plow or bore
  • RAerial fiber, support-strand and pole placement
  • RFiber splicing, testing and troubleshooting

Small Cell

Small Cell networks are in high-demand by Tier 1 Mobile Network Operators as annual wireless data continues double digit growth and is on a path to exceed the macro network capacity. Small Cell networks require large quantities of radio nodes and deep fiber across many parts of the country as providers must keep pace with 4G/LTE, and soon, 5G demand. We are in an elite club of companies with the equipment, experience and “know how” to deploy end-to-end Small Cell networks with hundreds of miles already built nationally. That’s why leading Mobile Network Operators and Neutral Host Providers depend on us to deliver.

Small Cell Solution Options:

  • RRight-of-way engineering for fiber and pathway placement
  • RNode A&E packages and utility pole owner coordination
  • RPermitting with local and state agencies
  • RUnderground and aerial fiber construction between cell tower and node clusters
  • RCabinet placement, coax terminations and fiber splicing
  • RPower supply turnup
  • RPIM, sweep and fiber performance testing
  • RAs-built documentation and closeout to Mobile Network Operator MOPs

Carrier WiFi

MSOs are clamoring for city-wide Carrier WiFi networks in their path to a Heterogenous network, thus offloading data from core network infrastructure and improving subscriber experience. Local governments also see the opportunity by delivering outdoor WiFi as cost-effective connectivity for Smart City applications – connecting residents, visitors, IoT sensors, transportation and pubic venues throughout the community. Recently, we have connected cities, college campuses and military bases with outdoor WiFi radios. This includes a city-wide outdoor WiFi network with more than 500 Cisco wireless APs in a top 50 market.

Carrier WiFi Solutions

  • RDrive testing and RF mapping
  • RRight-of-way engineering for cable and pathway placement
  • RPermitting with local and state agencies
  • RCable plant and wireless AP construction
  • RMSO verification and performance testing

Broadband Systems

We have more than 25 years of project performance experience for multiple MSO Broadband Systems including CATV network evolutions in major markets. We are considered a strategic supplier of engineering, construction and ongoing field support services to many national MSOs, as well as smaller, independent system operators.

Our market experience sets us apart, as six of the seven largest MSOs continue to depend on us as they have for years. We’ve implemented densely populated cities to regional deployments with a mix of cable plant environments, including projects with 7,000 miles of upgraded 1 Ghz HFC network infrastructure and another with over 6,000 miles of spliced coaxial cable with over 210,000 amplifiers and passives.
