Green Mountain Partners with SOLiD to Install New Wireless Network System in Federal Facility

July 9, 2013 – (Pembroke, NH) – Green Mountain, a premier integrated communication solutions provider, has partnered with SOLiD, a publicly-traded global communication solutions innovator, to engineer, furnish, and install (EF&I) a neutral-host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that will provide wireless coverage and capacity for a three-million-square-foot federal facility in Virginia.

The expansive federal facility is comprised of six ten-story office towers, two townhouses, and several other outlying buildings and includes underground corridors, mezzanines, and executive areas. The client partnered with Green Mountain to develop a multi-phased upgrade/replacement of their current DAS to support 3G/4G/LTE frequencies, features, and capabilities. Additionally, the client sought to increase coverage within existing buildings and extend coverage to other outlying buildings to include support for public safety frequencies and 911 calls from mobile devices, as well as support the latest generation of smart phones and tablets for voice, video, and data access.

Green Mountain partnered with SOLiD as their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the project. Proven in numerous high-traffic deployments, SOLiD wireless solutions are optimized for reliability and scalability, ease of deployment, and cost efficiency. The small footprint, rugged components, and modular design of the neutral-host DAS network enable simplified installation and maintenance. Additionally, the network is engineered to address the customer’s current and future wireless requirements and technologies.

“The three-million-square-foot facility was a demanding DAS network because the buildings are so spread out,” states Victor Drouin, President of Green Mountain. “SOLiD’s single-fiber design was a critical component in Green Mountain securing this project. The new wireless network will support multiple wireless operators and services using a single infrastructure, and sophisticated system management and monitoring software will ensure optimized and reliable connectivity for high-demand wireless users.”

“We innovated the SOLiD DAS solutions portfolio to provide the cellular capacity required by today’s mobile users and the coverage for mission-critical public safety communications in a scalable and fiber-efficient converged DAS platform that delivers low TCO,” said Seth Buechley, President of SOLiD. “We are grateful to be awarded the responsibility of enabling wireless communication services for Green Mountain’s federal client and its guests and look forward to addressing the current and future wireless needs of this client and many more to come.”
