Milpitas, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2005
In response to growing demand for better coverage, increased capacity, and new wireless services, and faced with near saturation of cellular towers, wireless carriers are turning to NextG Networks and its advanced municipal cellular networks.
In the past year alone, NextG has added several hundred muni-cellsÂ to support wireless consumers across seven cities in California, Georgia, Illinois, Florida, and Michigan. These municipal cellular distributed antenna systems provide coverage in communities like UC Santa Cruz, where mountainous terrain made cell towers ineffective; Pacific Palisades, CA where no wireless carrier has been allowed to install new antennas; and Atlanta, GA, where calls were getting blocked and dropped because cell sites were operating at maximum capacity.
NextGÂs development of 15 new networks in less than 9 months is evidence of the strong demand for wireless coverage across the country and NextGÂs commitment to meeting that demand on time and on budget for its carrier customers.
NextGÂs fast growth over the past year is due to its patented RF-over-fiber technology, its unique muni-cellularÂ network architecture, and strong market demand. Because NextGÂs muni-cells are protocol and network technology agnostic, NextGÂs networks can transport any wireless signal from any wireless service provider. This makes NextG ideal for communities who want to support multiple service providers and multiple wireless services and ideal for carriers who want to quickly add coverage and capacity.
ÂCommunities and wireless service providers around the country have been searching for a viable alternative to traditional cell towers and rooftop antennas,Â says John Georges, CEO of NextG Networks. ÂNextGÂs patented RF-over-fiber technology gives them a safer, faster, less expensive, and more attractive way of providing several wireless services on one discrete network.Â By attaching strategically placed, small, unobtrusive, and low-power muni-cells to NextGÂs highly reliable and flexible fiber optic networks, these networks strike the perfect balance between improved coverage and community preservation.
Most every major U.S. wireless carrier has signed on to use NextGÂs muni-cellular networks to expand coverage, increase capacity, and improve the reliability of their services in key locations. These muni-cellular networks are deployed in some of the most protected and geographically challenging areas of the country Âimproving communication, enhancing security and opening the door to the wireless services of tomorrow. Operators on these networks are experiencing higher customer satisfaction, lower churn, and increased revenue per customer.
