Network design & build

Telecom network design and build

MMX has over 10 years’ experience in the design and build of specialist communications networks for customers across multiple industries; from telecommunications to utilities, transportation companies, offshore energy providers and government agencies. These long-term clients value our engineering competence and professional approach and we build long term relationships.



Microwave Radio is widely used for transmission in short and long haul applications by telecom companies and organisations and enterprises. It’s a superb solution where fibre is not an option and some of the benefits of microwave radio are:

  • Each link only requires small physical space with a relatively small infrastructure footprint
  • Very cost efficient and viable where other transmission options such as optical fibre are not available
  • The technology is very robust and reliable
  • Latency can be better than optical



For our clients in the utilities sector, we are facilitating the transition to Smart Grids by providing the telecoms underpinning for all IP SCADA networks. In this field security and network resilience is paramount as well as engineering competence across a wide range of technology types including IP over VHF and UHF radio.
