Webinar | Engineering Automation: A Digital Twin Approach to “Rip and Replace” 

November 18, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST


The FCC “Rip and Replace” equipment recall mandate creates unique logistical challenges for many carriers. Due to the lack of accurate asset information, carriers must inspect sites to identify the installed equipment to be replaced, evaluate loading scenarios for structural integrity, and then mobilize technicians across large geographies.

While government reimbursement will aid the cost of this initiative, carriers still must grapple with the funding deadline, inadequate tower legacy data, repetitive and redundant site visits, engineering analysis backlogs, seasonal installation windows, and skilled labor shortages.

Join Spencer Crawford-White of Visual Intelligence, Apurba Tribedi of Bentley Systems and John Celentano of Inside Towers for a webinar on Thursday, November 18 at 3 p.m. ET to learn how a digital twin approach can help carriers streamline recall activities by rapidly identifying equipment make and model, automating structural analysis, facilitating drawings and simulations, documenting site modifications and more.

Key insights to be discussed include:

  • How traditional equipment replacement workflows compare to new drone-based inspection complemented by digital twin automation.
  • How to use high-fidelity 3D reality models generated from drones to visually inspect and perform critical measurements.
  • How AI-based Digital Twin analytics can identify equipment, enhance engineering analysis and documentation.
