High Gain Wireless specializes in non-traditional network build projects and manages a broad scope of converging technologies for the future.

Our team members are experts in executing the most difficult site developments by unifying their diverse backgrounds in engineering, site development, construction, project management and finance to deliver distinct solutions. This experience, along with strong industry relationships, is the cornerstone of High Gain Wireless’ success.

One unique offering is the company’s expertise in building out license-save markets for spectrum owners. FCC guidelines mandate strict requirements to build-out awarded markets within certain timeframes. These licenses are subject to cancellation if not operational by a specified date. High Gain Wireless has been very successful in helping many owners meet critical deadlines, often saving their licenses.

High Gain Wireless’ experiences in all aspects of tower development strategically position it to execute on your most difficult site deployments.
