Internet and telephone connectivity has become a requirement of modern life. The United Nations has even ruled Internet access a human right. Businesses and communities run on the assumption that when you pick up the phone or turn on a computer, it will be immediately connected. But that connectivity has to be delivered by someone.
Telecom companies build and maintain the systems that enable this connectivity. To provide that uninterrupted signal, they must conduct consistent maintenance of cell phone towers and supporting infrastructure, catching problems before they result in dropped calls, Internet outages or extended blackouts.
Now this maintenance is easier, safer and cheaper. Using commercial drones, telecom companies are conducting comprehensive, repeatable, autonomous inspections and collecting imagery of equipment that can be difficult to access.
