for Construction

Day 1 Connectivity

This is the No.1 reason that wireless WAN is being adopted in the construction industry today. For greenfield sites, sites located on the outskirts of cities, for road and rail construction, and for large-scale projects, NBN is often unavailable or will take months to arrive. MobileCorp has already deployed 5G for primary connectivity to office demountables at the Western Sydney Airport  Badgerys Creek construction site, to warehouses being constructed at Kemps Creek, to a correctional facility in regional Victoria, and for highway construction offices in Western Australia.

Reliable Collaboration

Working on a construction project typically involves collaboration between a large variety of stakeholders on a continued basis. To avoid delays, it’s critical that everyone stay up-to-date on any changes and have access to documentation at the right time. The speed that 5G provides will enable this level of communication and document-sharing to occur even on mobile devices, which is an added convenience.

Workplace Safety

5G can enable highly accurate asset tracking, whether it be on site equipment or personnel. Connecting to a reliable 5G wireless network can enable data processing at the edge to track temperature and air quality. A lone worker safety button can be used to alert site managers in case of an emergency and accurately convey a worker's location for immediate help. Wearable sensors can guide workers onsite to avoid hazardous zones and can also alert management if workplace safety clothing is not being worn.

Site Surveillance

Adequate monitoring of large construction sites requires cameras that are supported by low-latency connectivity.  4G has a latency rate of 200 milliseconds, LTE 15-50ms, whereas 5G offers 1ms.  This fast response time can ensure that the data collected in real-time from sensors and cameras is as accurate and timely as possible. This is key when it comes to detecting security breaches or hazards on-site. Cloud management allows video viewing from anywhere.

Realtime Data Transfer

Taylor Construction in partnership with Cradlepoint and Telstra were one of the first companies in the world to utilise 5G for onsite data visualisation. Using Microsoft HoloLens mixed-reality smart glasses, Taylor employees onsite can render a virtual model of the building or elements of the construction process such as holographic structural steel, framing, or electrical schematics. The high bandwidth of 5G also allows the data-heavy transference of digital plans and drawings to be viewed on mobile devices onsite.

Remote Machine Operation

5G enables the remote autonomous operation of onsite machinery like cranes, loaders, and even Hadrian X, the world’s first fully autonomous brick laying robot invented in Western Australia. Operators can safely and remotely pilot and tele-operate drones and other vehicles. The increased bandwidth and greater capacity provided by 5G connectivity ensures important data and information are quickly and dependably transferred between operators and machines. 

Enterprise Wireless 
for construction sites

Day 1 Connectivity
Greenfield sites

5G wireless is the answer for agile and secure enterprise-grade day 1 connectivity.

It eliminates the delays in provisioning fixed connectivity. A wireless WAN can be quickly redeployed to another location if required. This flexibility makes wireless a more attractive option for sites that will have a known short duration.

In Australia we have seen examples of this use case during the bushfires to power temporary evacuation centres and during Covid19 lockdowns to securely connect pop-up testing stations. In the construction industry, 5G can be used to power on-site offices, sensors and cameras from day 1.

Wireless WAN
Temporary sites

Having the agility to move the 5G access point as a site evolves, or in the case of road and rail construction to move it as the construction shifts is a bonus. 

No wires means no digging hazard. Wires are also vulnerable to site flooding and heavy vehicles/equipment.

When a construction site is ready for handover, simply reconfigure your 5G gateway device and shift it and antenna to the next location.

High Bandwidth
Edge Computing IOT

Construction businesses are increasingly working with very large data sets for richer visualisation, real-time surveillance, and IOT sensor edge processing.

Add in new technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality (AR), and 5G is fast becoming the go-to enabler of higher bandwidth, low-latency broadband.

This is not some 'pie-in-the-sky' theoretical use case but is actually happening with progressive Australian construction companies right now.

Low Latency
Smart sensors

As 5G continues to enable increasing data volumes, not everything will be able to be done in the cloud. It will require some of the computing to be done on-site with edge computing and mobile edge computing on 5G networks. Proximity to data at its source is extremely necessary in construction.

In time, it will be possible  to sensor virtually anything on a worksite, allowing companies to collect data from tools and materials.

Sensors are already being used in concreting to assess cure time. With smart building IoT sensors and 5G, contractors can create a digital twin of the building with data from the very start of the project throughout its life.

and Onsite Survey 

The 5G network continues to in-fill with increased small cell density, however each site will need to be investigated to ensure 5G is a viable access technology onsite. LTE/5G is also a future-proofed solution.

  • Construction is a key target vertical for cyber attacks aimed at obtaining information and/or commercial advantage. 
  • Construction companies risk enormous commercial loss and liability for delays to projects due to cyber attack.
  • Cyber attacks may compromise confidential business information or result in unauthorised access to project, plant, data and specifications.
  • Construction relies on Internet of Things devices for asset tracking, worksite security, machine control, wearable technology and this increases the attack vector.
  • more. This interconnected approach—along with surveillance devices like IP cameras and GPS-connected drones, and a lack of industry cyber defense—has resulted in a serious rise in successful cyber attacks. Construction companies also rely on associations with third parties—such as subcontractors—making them even more vulnerable.
