Verizon and Samsung announced a 4G LTE network extender for enterprises designed to provide fast, reliable access to voice and data services with better indoor wireless coverage. The companies target public safety offices, government agencies, remote and expansive operations facilities, hospitals and hotels with the device.
The device uses Samsung’s small cell technology to deliver a 4G LTE solution for organizations that transforms weak coverage areas within a business into productive work zones, enabling smartphones and tablets to stay connected where and when they are needed.
The solution is ideal for mid-sized locations (10,000 to 100,000 square feet) and is cost-effective and easy to deploy. A single unit supports approximately 42 concurrent users and about 31,500 square feet.
“The introduction of this solution with Verizon represents our continued focus on delivering innovative LTE solutions for our customers. The 4G LTE Network Extender for Enterprise expands the small cell portfolio for Verizon to deliver the best service for their location-diverse subscriber base”, said Mark Louison, Networks Division senior vice president and U.S. general manager for Samsung Electronics America.
“The Samsung solution provides us with an offering for our enterprise customers that have significant volumes of devices, employees or guests that require a fast connection for 4G LTE. The introduction of the 4G LTE Network Extender for Enterprise provides our business and government clients with a 4G voice and data solution that seamlessly extends the corporate network to deliver mission- critical apps and corporate emails in a high performance environment”, said T.J. Fox, senior vice president of Wireless Enterprise for Verizon.
