How Common Language better positions tower and network sites

With service providers rapidly building out their networks, tower and network site owners have a prime opportunity to help them optimize and accelerate the expansion of 5G.

Not only can these site owners add value to service providers looking for efficiency and simplicity – they can position themselves for new business opportunities and revenue streams while creating lasting relationships in the telecommunications industry.

The question, of course, is how.

For starters, site owners need to make their valuable assets known and discoverable. Having standardized industry data at each site makes it easier for service providers to know about and use the available infrastructure to support interconnection needs and network planning. This data comes in the form of TruOps™ Common Language® CLLI™ Codes, which are unique, geographic identifiers that specify the location of network sites.

CLLI Codes are the defacto industry standard for identifying, classifying and understanding the location and operating attributes of every piece of infrastructure. They include industry-standard nomenclature that allows companies that own towers and other network sites to speak the same language as their service provider customers. This helps those companies efficiently provide site information to existing and prospective tenants and verify and augment site information in their internal databases.

As a result, companies that utilize and leverage CLLI Codes become more valuable to service providers while increasing their own efficiency and visibility—ultimately maximizing their revenue.
