Deutsche Telekom starts T Infra company in Netherlands

Friday 29 November 2019 | 12:16 CET | News

Deutsche Telekom has launched a new infrastructure company in the Netherlands, called T Infra. The company will manage equipment sites for mobile antennas, such as rooftop installations. Still in formation, a 'soft launch' of T Infra was announced at the Telecom Insights conference held by Telecompaper in Utrecht. 

T Infra has around 3,000 active mobile sites in the Netherlands and claims to be the largest such operator in the country. The company manages the masts, relations with property owners and municipal authorisations. It works with ESRI Nederland on the planning and design of sites. 

T Infra does not own any active infrastructure, such as antennas, radios or electronics. This belongs to the operators, which may choose to outsource the management of their equipment. 

The majority of the portfolio is sites built by T-Mobile Netherlands, at around half its total network. In other locations, T-Mobile cooperates with the other operators in multi-tenant sites. For example, the company Novec manages high masts along motorways. 

T Infra offers its sites to other operators, and expects growing demand in the years to come as operators increase network density for 4G and launch 5G. Other applications such as smart city and smart industry services can also use the sites.
