Dense Air to enable "neutral host small cells" for 4G and 5G

Dense Air has announced it had completed the acquisition of the 2.5 GHz Spectrum Management Rights from Blue Reach and Cayman Wireless in New Zealand, the company said.

The combined spectrum assets provide 70 MHz spectrum in the 2.5 GHz Band (3GPP Band 7 and Band 41).

Dense Air is a new class of wholesale network operator, that “enhances and extends” the coverage and capacity of existing Mobile Networks and will operate as a “Carrier of Carriers” operator, typically on a neutral host basis. Dense Air uses a comprehensive portfolio of 4G and 5G small cells to offer services to Mobile Operators in licensed spectrum dedicated to small cells for densification/extension deployments.

Dense Air provides operational support and technology platforms that enable targeted mass deployment of 4G and 5G small cells. The acquired spectrum assets in New Zealand enable Dense Air to start its operations almost immediately.

Dense Air is based in London, UK and has offices in Ireland, Belgium and Portugal. Dense Air provides unique “carrier of carriers” neutral host small cell services to deliver cost effective densification to any existing LTE Mobile Carrier or Service Provider.
