OpenTower – The Next Generation of Communication Towers

OnDemand Available Now 

Welcome to the next generation of Communication Tower engineering. OpenTower transforms the design practices of telecom towers by encompassing the life-cycle management of tower engineering, starting from tower analysis to inspection and reality models, and finally completing the loop of a tower digital twin. It’s a purpose-built application for rapid modeling to evaluate tower ratings complemented by realistic graphics. A data-driven, catalog-based modeling environment coupled with advanced features like modification layers and scenario analysis, feedline tool, foundation design, etc. gives you the experience of next-generation tower engineering. 

You will learn about: 

  • Precision modelling tools for the most economical designs.
  • International design code options like TIA-222 F, G, H, AS1170.2-2011, AS3995, AS4100
  • Customized report creation– from structure data to loading, analysis output to design capacities for members, connections.
  • Modification layers and scenario analysis for lifecycle management in a single file.
  • Import MS Tower files td, twr and library files to OpenTower
