Abstract: In mobile communication the Base Transceiver Station (BTS) site and the tower maintenance play an important role. In the present day scenario some problems are being faced in its maintenance. The major problems faced include the theft of wires, the fluctuation of temperatures, unauthenticated entry, fuel amount being unnoticed and the vendor and the technician’s time management in case of any of the stated problems. In the project work BTS safety and fault management system the measures are taken to rectify these problems. The method makes use of GSM modem which gives the instant message about the each activity happening in the site. The temperature sensors will sense the temperature of the room and if it rises above the threshold value the GSM module will send the message to the master mobile which is already set in the system. The cell site Base Transceiver Station (BTS) which are operated by Diesel generator can be controlled manually or can be put in automatic mode. In addition the site is under the surveillance of CCTV camera which turns ON automatically whenever the site door is opened as a safety measure. Door open/close controller is used for the automatic door opening and closing. The site door can be accessed only through the RFID authentication system. The situation in the site is updated to the technician through messages. The method can greatly improve the BTS site operating efficiency, reduces the delay and fuel consumption. The project has better performance and involves less hardware complexity. The project gives a single comprehensive solution that remotely controls and monitors the subsystems inside each base station site and enables network operators to coordinate and manage the conditions at all base station sites across their network. This system does not demand any changes in the existing infrastructure but just adds more features to it.
