SAC Wireless, a Nokia Company and leading provider of communication network infrastructure, announced today at NATE UNITE 2023 a nationwide partnership with Ronin Revolution Corp., a developer of power rope ascenders and rescue equipment.
The wireless industry’s continued 5G rollout and federal commitment to infrastructure projects have increased the need for skilled technicians to deploy sophisticated communication technology on a wide variety of elevated structures. With the SAC deployment, telecom and utility communication network crews now have an alternative to climbing towers manually.
“As the leading provider of wireless infrastructure and private network deployment services, SAC is the first to use the Ronin Lift coast to coast,” said Chris Bondurant, CEO of SAC Wireless. “Safety is the #1 core value of our company. Reducing the amount of manual climb minutes increases technician performance, productivity, and longevity on the tower so we can precisely deploy innovative designs.”
The Ronin Lift can carry a payload of 400 lbs., in a relatively lightweight compact design at 24 lbs. Additional weight can be carried by integrating standard block and pulley systems and leveraging traditional mechanical advantages. Trained climbers can safely ascend 300 feet in less than 4 minutes.
“Ronin technology was perfected for the most demanding industrial environments,” states Bryant Bertrand, CEO of Ronin. “SAC’s company-wide rollout is a celebrated milestone as we scale our distribution to reach a wide variety of industry verticals with affordable and practical solutions to improve workplace safety and productivity.”
