1. A method using augmented reality to visualize a telecommunications site for planning, engineering, and installing equipment, the method comprising:

  • creating a three-dimensional (3D) model of a virtual object representing the equipment that includes any of a cell tower, a shelter, cell site components on the cell tower, antennas, cabinets, small cell equipment, power equipment, and batteries;

    providing the 3D model of the virtual object to an augmented reality server;

    providing a virtual environment representing the telecommunications site that already exists;

    obtaining the virtual object from the augmented reality server; and

    selectively inserting the virtual object in the virtual environment for one or more of planning, engineering, and installation associated with the telecommunications site including any of determining cable lengths, component dimensions, component placement options, rack placement, and construction approval.
