The appearance of the living being on earth brought the need to communicate. Without communication the mankind would have never achieved what is now called "civilization". At the beginning of the 21st century, where information and new technologies play the most important part, communication has become one of the crucial aspects of our lives. Throughout the ages the humankind has created lots of fabulous things, the mobile network being one of the most magnificent. The technical invention has taken the communication among people to a new dimension and many previously hard-to-imagine things have become accessible for everybody. The information society has made a huge pace forward.
It has been 10 years since the mobile network appeared in Lithuania. The first one to start providing the NMT - 450 standard mobile network services was UAB Comliet. At the same time, on 4 April 1991 the closed joint stock company ANTENA was founded and started to install mobile network base stations and mount antennae for the first mobile network operator. Later, UAB Antena started to install cable and radio relay links. The installation and reconstruction works of base stations for UAB Comliet, as well as their maintenance, were done on 221 sites.
The gained experience enabled the company to cooperate successfully with other mobile network operators. In 1995 UAB Nelte, the newly established nation-wide paging network operator, chose UAB Antena as the construction contractor for its base stations. The total of 21 base stations were rapidly designed and constructed for UAB Nelte.
In 1996 UAB Antena started to cooperate with the digital mobile network (GSM - 900) operator UAB Bite. The company designed and installed metal constructions for aerial-feeder path as well as built and equipped 42 UAB Bite base stations countrywide.
Remarkable quality, highly skilled specialists and accumulated experience was noticed by a big German company Teleport Europe GmbH in 1996 which made an order to mount a 3.7 m diameter satellite antenna along with transceiver equipment in the International Vilnius Airport.
Since 1998 UAB Antena is actively involved in cooperation with AB Lietuvos Telekomas. For this company Antena has designed and built more than 50 base stations. Towels and masts of different height were installed and mounted at not less than 10 base stations.
In 2001 our company has designed and constructed a 15 m high steel mast with tension wires on the roof of a building for a new GSM-900 standard base station in Rainiai, Telsiai District for UAB Omnitel.
