Cellular Specialties Helps High Speed Voice and Data Services Take Off With 4G Wireless at Orlando International Airport
Company's Expertise for In-Building Wireless Installation Yields Largest 4G LTE Deployment by U.S. Carrier to Date
MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Cellular Specialties, Inc. (CSI), a recognized leader in the design and implementation of in-building 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, and Public Safety wireless products and solutions, today announced that they have deployed a 4G LTE in-building wireless coverage solution to enhance high-speed, voice and data connectivity at the Orlando International Airport. The solution will enhance wireless coverage for the employees, public safety personnel, and passengers/visitors throughout the airport. The wireless enhancement is considered the largest 4G LTE public venue for the associated U.S. Carriers -- totaling 2,568,000 square feet of coverage.
"This system ensures that our customers have access to the latest and best services that the cellular communications providers can offer now and in the future, from clear voice to high definition video, for both personal and business use. Orlando International Airport is among the first to deliver on the objective of these richer content, higher value services to our residents and the 35 million annual passengers," says John Newsome, Director of Information Technology, Orlando International Airport.
CSI led the wireless upgrade using MobileAccess equipment in conjunction with the U.S. carriers for backhaul services. Working closely with the U.S. Carriers and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) on the design and in-building layout, CSI installed a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that would not interfere with aircraft support frequencies while facilitating public safety communications and 4G connectivity throughout the airport.
"Ubiquitous high-speed voice and data access throughout terminal areas is a strong business differentiator for airports seeking to increase passenger and visitor traffic," said Kelley Carr, President, Custom Solutions Group, CSI. "CSI understands the wireless market drivers for airports, stadiums, and public venues. For this project it was very important that we unobtrusively install the system while not interrupting airport and security communications. In addition, Orlando International Airport is now able to support emerging cellular services and easily upgrade to support future high-speed voice and data connectivity needs."
