Japanese operator NTT Docomo and Indonesian telecom tower company Solusi Tunas Pratama (STP) have agreed to test a service dubbed 'docomo sky for Tower Inspection' in Indonesia. The service uses drones to photograph base stations and telecom towers and transmit the information to a command center in real time. The partners hope to expand the scope of the test to include other locations and facilities prior to launching a full-scale commercial service in the first half of this year.
