eQ Fund Management Company Ltd., which owns commercial and care properties, and the technology company Digita Oy have agreed to cooperate to enable eQ’s properties to use the best mobile connections available.

“The core of our operations is the continuous maintenance and development of our properties to best meet the needs of our tenants. We also want to offer our tenants the best possible mobile connections, regardless of whether they are needed for business, education or home use,” says eQ Asset Management’s Real Estate Director Kimmo Alaharju.

“Freeing the time of the employees responsible for the properties so they can fulfil their core duties and centralising the management of base stations in the hands of one responsible entity are also important factors to us. With the increasing use of mobile networks, the need for digital infrastructure grows, and we are now able to offer operators optimal base station locations in our properties more actively and effectively than ever,” Alaharju says, discussing the context of the cooperation being initiated with Digita.

“We are very pleased with the cooperation with eQ Fund Management Company. We want to offer our customers an effortless management model for their properties’ base stations using a one-stop-shop principle. Digita takes over all Telecom-related rental activities, security aspects and contract management in locations across Finland,” says Digita’s COO Markus Ala-Hautala.

“Our goal is to also serve our operator customers in a more comprehensive way than ever and help in developing digital infrastructure in Finland,” Ala-Hautala adds.

In addition to base station management, Digita’s real estate solutions include internal coverage services and IoT services designed for properties, such as condition monitoring and remote reading of water meters.
