Acquisition and legalisation

The best sites for the best coverage

The end user is looking for excellence in communications, so a good site can make the difference between a satisfied customer and an unsatisfied customer.

Each new site linked to the network involves a far-reaching search of candidates before making the decision to implement the project and then integrate the site into the network. So that Operators can assess and decide on the most appropriate candidate, Arca takes care of preparing technical reports that include relevant aspects on radio spectrum, transmission, legalisation and the works required to install the infrastructure.

From there, we proceed to lease the spaces chosen by the telecommunication companies to install telecommunication equipment, both for fixed and mobile networks.

As for the works, Arca also manages all necessary licences: application, follow-up and delivery of all licences and permits (whether municipal, provincial or national) required to undertake the installation. During the works and until the commissioning of the installation, Arca liaises with the owners and resolves any incident which may arise.

As for existing sites, Arca takes care of renegotiating lease agreements, signing any amendment annexes required by the telecommunication companies, and liaising with the owners, when necessary. We also perform audits of contractual and/or legal records, regularisation, etc.
