Zayo chosen by Wireless Carrier for small cell solution

A major wireless carrier has selected Zayo for a small cell solution to densify its network in Napa Valley, California, the company said.

The solution will consist of 23 new route miles of network that will connect more than 50 new small cell sites.

Napa Valley, the heart of California wine country, is a growing center for travel and tourism. The solution is expected to significantly improve the wireless carrier´s existing coverage and capacity, particularly in the popular downtown area.

Small cell technology is increasingly being used to boost network capacity so wireless carriers can keep up with the accelerating demand for bandwidth, and to prepare their networks for 5G technology. Zayo´s small cell solutions include fiber backhaul and fronthaul, as well as full turnkey implementation, including site selection, site acquisition, permitting and installation of equipment. These installations are providing enhanced mobile coverage, capacity and bandwidth in high-usage areas.

Zayo Group Holdings provides communications infrastructure services, including fiber and bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure to the world´s leading businesses.
