SOLiD, Cheytec Partnership Accelerates Carrier-Ready In-Building Wireless Network Deployments
Middleprise-ready In-Building Wireless Platform Combines RF Signal Source and DAS
January 16, 2018 – Plano, Texas - SOLiD, the leading in-building cellular and public safety infrastructure provider, and Cheytec Telecommunications, today announced a strategic partnership to provide enterprise customers and building owners, commonly referred to as the Middleprise, a complete in-building wireless solution including both RF signal source and a proven, market-leading Distributed Antenna System (DAS).
Enterprises, and commercial real estate operators face shared challenges when it comes to in-building wireless connectivity. In-building platforms, while beginning to address the expanding demand for bandwidth and connectivity, in many cases are limited to a single carrier, without a clear upgrade path to future technologies. The financial models for investing in in-building cellular solutions are not effective as on-premise gear can be expensive, not designed for buildings of the future, and are underfunded by wireless service providers who have budgetary constraints. And ultimately, tenants and visitors still experience poor or no connectivity within their workplaces.
The new Cheytec-SOLiD solution addresses these concerns. Enterprises and building owners can now deploy the combined Cheytec-SOLiD solution with base station equipment and a DAS that is fully tested for operator connectivity, designed to support today’s building environment and with a clear path to future enhancements.
According to Ken Sandfeld, President of SOLiD Americas, “Middleprise customers expect great wireless service in-building, but they have been slow to deploy based on the CAPEX and OPEX risk levels and the lack of confidence in operator connectivity. Our partnership with Cheytec reduces the financial risk of middleprise customers and can accelerate installations to provide a complete wireless solution.”
Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR, comments, “Financial factors that limit ROI are some of the major factors that inhibit broader and faster deployment of in-building of solutions. Cheytec and SOLiD are addressing the market needs and the middleprise is asking for these types of innovative platforms and solutions.”
“Cheytec and SOLiD have formed this partnership as a result of market expectations for a complete solution including RF signal source and DAS that reduces investment risks and ensures faster and more confident deployment. We look forward to delivering this new combined offering to the middleprise with SOLiD,” according to Jarrett Bluth, CEO at Cheytec.
The solution from SOLiD and Cheytec is available immediately.
