EdgeConneX to Construct Small Cell Network for High-Profile Northern Virginia Mixed-Use Development

Small Cell Network Set to Expand the Reach of Traditional Cellular Signals Within the Complex

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) - EdgeConneX, a leading provider of Infrastructure as a Service solutions, announces that it is currently constructing a small cellular ('small cell') network for a high-profile, 'urban' Northern Virginia mixed-use class 'A' residential and retail property development.

On the heels of EdgeConneX's announcement declaring the deployment of a 'rural' small cell network for CoverageCo throughout the State of Vermont, this second project illustrates the ready adoption of real estate developers and municipalities to leverage the technology in expanding cellular network coverage.

"With several deployed small cell networks under our belt, EdgeConneX has become the leading provider of solutions in the market," comments Doug Wiest, Executive Vice President of EdgeConneX. "Real estate developers continue to wrestle with solutions to expand and enhance cellular network coverage. EdgeConneX's ability to design, construct and manage small cell networks for communities and businesses will improve communication capabilities within large developments throughout the country."

Small cell networks solve the problem of mobile network expansion in the wake of exponential growth and demand of mobile video and data traffic. The networks are constructed with low-powered radio access nodes, strategically placed within small distances that extend service coverage into traditionally hard-to-reach areas such as mountainous regions, high-rise buildings and campus-style developments. Small cell networks are compatible with a wide range of air interfaces including GSM, SDMA, LTE, and WiMax, expanding the reach of both 3G and 4G networks.

Wiest adds, "EdgeConneX continues to be an invaluable partner and advisor to those companies, communities and developers that seek to provide superior cellular coverage for their customers."

EdgeConneX's small cell network solutions are groundbreaking in that they are proven to allow carriers, municipalities, corporate campus environments, building owner-operators, and others the opportunity to address capacity constraints and expand coverage capabilities while overcoming certain physical challenges faced by today's wireless networks. Small cell solutions enable seamless connectivity for today's increasingly connected consumer.
