RNS connects the tallest building in South Africa

Set for completion in 2019, The Leonardo will be the tallest building in Sandton, overtaking the Carlton Centre in Johannesburg that is currently holding the title of the tallest building in South Africa. Already towering over the Michelangelo, initial design plans revealed that the Leonardo will boast 42 floors. However, the developers decided to aim higher in an effort to build the tallest building in the country, and ultimately even in Africa. It is said that the skyscraper will reach a height of 234 meters, covering 55 floors in total.

RNS connects the tallest building in South AfricaAccording to Business Tech the Legacy Property Group, which is behind the development of the Leonardo, has revealed that the thoughts and reasoning behind the planning and development of the skyscraper, is that it will be the most technologically advanced, environmentally friendly building on the continent.

Radio Network Solutions (RNS) has already been contracted to deploy its technically superior solutions within the completed floors of the building. It is well-known in the industry that RNS engineers have the capability to design, implement and support wireless networks in any environment.

“RNS is in the process of installing a Distributed Antenna System from the basement up to the 15th floor of the building,” says RNS sales director, Richard Hill.

A distributed antenna system, or DAS in short, is a network of spatially separated antenna points. RNS will strategically install these antennas in suitable areas within the building. If installed correctly, the DAS will boost cellular network coverage within the skyscraper where wireless networks are required. Underground areas, such as the basement, as well as areas deep within the building that has poor line-of-sight to existing towers, will benefit from the installation. This integrated solution will also ensure that there is consistent and uninterrupted coverage once the building is occupied and a concentrated demand is placed on the networks.

The Leonardo will be a mixed-use building and on completion will boast conference facilities, premium office space, elegant residential apartments and penthouse suites, a high-end mall, as well as other luxury amenities.

“We are proud to be part of the team set to make history in South Africa with the tallest and most technologically advanced skyscraper for its time,” concludes Hill.
