It is for Aircraft warning features.
Height requirements vary across states and
countries, and may include additional rules such
as requiring a white flashing strobe in the
daytime and pulsating red fixtures at night.
Structures over a certain height may also be
required to be painted with contrasting color
schemes such as white and orange or white and
red to make them more visible against the sky.

No dear it is not mandatory that the towers are in red and white some vendors uses no color the make tower simple as nokia siemens also uses simple no color but alcatel and some other vendors as well as some operator have required to make it red and white
Posted by HamidAliKhan


It is basically a vendor dependent.
And also used for distinguishing one operator from other.

But in our side nokia seimens is using gray colors.

Here are some Answers

1. Although research is still underway, findings indicate that bird-tower collisions are related to lighting. Birds' eyes are particularly sensitive to the red and infrared spectra of light. Apparently birds are attracted to the red, blinking lights required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on towers taller than 199'. White flashing lights seem to be less attractive to birds. Red light has been shown to disrupt the avian magnetic compass. However, it is apparently the duration of blinking that has the greatest attraction to birds on foggy, misty nights. The longer the light stays off, the less likely is the attraction.
