Is Your Shot Clock Running Out? Learn Hassle-Free Ways to Optimize Your Pole Attachment Program

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EDT

Over the last several years, more and more utilities are being overwhelmed with new attachment applications and recognize the need for an effective management strategy. The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) managed by the FCC will finance $20.4 billion over the next ten years for the deployment of broadband networks in rural America. With this explosion of new broadband structure owners all share the common goals of ensuring system integrity, reliability, safety, and compliance.  Many utilities have successfully incorporated new technologies to support these needs, perform the work with less resources while improving transparency of work and attacher communications.  

This webinar is an overview of these technologies and how they can work together to improve the performance of your joint use management program, while maintaining a safe pole plant.

Reduce Risk, Improve Resiliency - Learn How to Optimize Your Steel Asset Management Program

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EDT

Over the last several years, more and more utilities have begun to recognize the need for effective management strategies in order to ensure system integrity and reliability. Because of this and other factors these structures are being more closely evaluated than in the past. Utilities are developing programs to assess structures for corrosion damage, evaluate restoration options and implement corrosion mitigation to extend the service life of these important assets.

However, not all programs are equal and in fact often lack essential components or oversite to be effective. Successful steel management programs are the result of extensive efforts to fine tune program elements and ensure effective use of utility resources and personnel.
