SOLiD’s Underground Reputation

By Mike Collado
June 18th, 2013

SOLiD exhibited in last week’s New York State Wireless Association Wireless Forum 2013 where numerous attendees approached our tabletop and said:

“Oh, you’re the subway guys.”

Thanks – we love the recognition!

SOLiD’s Distributed Antenna System (DAS) equipment is currently being deployed by Transit Wireless to enable wireless coverage in 277 underground stations in the New York City Subway.

In April, we joined New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Interim Executive Director Thomas F. Prendergast of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) plus executives from Transit Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile USA and Boingo Wireless to celebrate the Phase I launch of cellular and Wi-Fi service in what will be a multi-year project.

But that’s not the only SOLiD subway project…

We’re also enabling cellular coverage in the Seoul Metropolitan Subway.

Which means that two of the largest subways systems in the world run on SOLiD!

By the Numbers

New York City Subway:

  • World’s largest by number of stations (277)
  • 1.6 billion riders each year
  • 5.3 million riders each weekday

Seoul Metropolitan Subway:

  • World’s longest system by length (957.3km)
  • World’s second largest by number of stations
  • 2.5 billion riders each year
  • 6.9 million riders each weekday

Other Industries Run on SOLiD

As much as we love being “the subway guys,” we’re a whole lot more…

SOLiD also enables wireless service – including cellular, public-safety and Wi-Fi – in large sports venues within the NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, NASCAR and the NCAA.

Leading Hospitals, Universities and Fortune 500 Corporate Campuses as well as Hotels, Resorts and Casinos also run on SOLiD.
