Planning for mobile service / switching centre (MSC)

Master technical innovations

Mobile service/switching centres (MSCs) are strategically important data centres and thus central components of the recognised generations of mobile technology, such as GSM, UMTS, Long-Term Evolution (4G) up to today's fifth generation (5G). In the past, new technologies led to repeated upgrades on roof surfaces.

Future-proof planning

In order to ensure the system availability of central data centres in the future, external lightning protection systems and earthing systems are constantly being expanded and optimised. Here, standardised lightning protection solutions simplify the integration of new and existing system technology. Pre-defined protected volumes render new lightning protection measures superfluous.

Maintain separation distances

Buildings in different locations differ considerably in structure and equipment. Here, maintaining separation distances to all metal and electrical installations is a significant challenge.

HVI lightning protection

More safety with HVI

Ensure the correct separation distances from the roof to the ground level. With an insulated lightning protection system using high-voltage-resistant HVI Conductors, you are on the safe side. Another advantage: Any deficiencies with the existing lightning protection system are rectified with this procedure.

Your benefits with DEHNconcept

Compliant with standard DIN EN 62305

All plans of the new external lightning protection system must be in accordance with Part 3 of the lightning protection standard DIN EN 62305.

Uniform set-up with 3D planning

3D planning enables a uniform set-up of MSC sites with insulated (HVI) and/or conventional lightning protection systems. Existing, functional earthing systems will be taken into account and integrated.

State-of-the-art technology

The building and system protection of MSC sites is raised to the state of the art by the 3D lightning protection plan.

Full data transmission

You obtain all the data on system documentation. With a DEHNplan software licence, the plans can be updated to draw in additional parts of an installation on the roof surface or to reposition air-termination rods.

Optimum protection

The comprehensive lightning and surge protection concept reliably ensures optimum protection and high-availability systems.

Standard-compliant – guaranteed


With all our plans, you can expect them to be standard-compliant – guaranteed.
