BSNL to install 50 better looking 'zero base' mobile sites
14 March 2016 Current Affairs GK: To demonstrate that communication can be delivered with good aesthetics, state-run BSNL plans to install 50 'zero base' mobile towers, which are better looking and multi-functional. The concept of a 'zero site' is that it can be used as a wi-fi hotspot, street light and camera and the radio units can be hidden inside the pole or underneath. BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava during his recent visit to Mobile World Congress, he witnessed solutions provided by equipment makers Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei and ZTE regarding the zero base towers. We will ask for quotes from all these players for zero base towers...initially we will begin with 50 towers to demonstrate that how communication can be delivered with good aesthetics and good looking features.He added the cost will be a little higher than normal towers but as active infrastructure is allowed to be shared, the cost can also be shared among the operators and the city can look much cleaner. "Slowly we can replace all ugly looking towers which are spoiling the skyline to a very good camouflaged eye soothing towers," he added. The companies are expected to submit their quotes in March and in next six months, BSNL will come out with some kind of concept for the same. The average cost to set up a mobile tower is anywhere between Rs 8-10 lakh.
