Our approach

At IHS Towers, we are dedicated to engineering excellence. We provide a wide range of communications infrastructure solutions and managed services to help our customers achieve their connectivity goals. Our customers include mobile network operators (MNOs), internet service providers, broadcasters, security functions and private corporations needing point-to-point secure communications.

Innovation is at the heart of our business, and as demand for connectivity continues to soar our focus is on realizing value, reducing costs, and securing sustainable energy supplies where possible. We have been steadily reducing our diesel consumption and decreasing our reliance on intermittent electricity grids to power our towers. Today, solar and hybrid solutions form a key part of our offering and in October 2022, we published our Carbon Reduction Roadmap, a comprehensive strategy for decreasing our emissions.

We believe we provide a differentiated approach through our advanced Network Operating Centers (NOCs), bespoke remote monitoring on most sites, site acquisition and maintenance teams. We have a strong network of partners in the fields of security, power management equipment, site deployment / construction and diesel supply, that support us in safeguarding our sites and protecting strong network uptime. Through the 24-hour monitoring, preventative and corrective maintenance of sites, our NOCs enable us to be more efficient, enhancing our service delivery and competitiveness.

Across our operations in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, our engineers and management teams share their expert knowledge to bring new best-in-class solutions to each IHS operation. We work collaboratively with our customers to help them deliver their long-term network strategies, roll out 3G, 4G and 5G, and introduce more innovation solutions to deepen connectivity across the emerging markets, in both urban and rural settings. In some instances, we acquire a MNO’s towers (and related assets) and lease space back to them. This frees up their capital, allows them to expand their network quickly and reduce capital expenditures, while knowing they will receive best-in-class service and the latest innovations from IHS.
