Fibertech Networks Completes First Small Cell Site Activation

  • Fibertech Networks
ROCHESTER, NY - Fibertech Networks, a fiber optic broadband provider operating in eleven eastern and central region states, announced it has activated what is believed to be the first outdoor metro small cell site in the nation for a wireless carrier carrying commercial traffic, with a complete turn-key fiber solution.

"There has been a tremendous amount of press and speculation in the wireless segment about small cell, and the potential explosion of wireless carrier’s deployment of this technology, but until now it has been limited to planning discussions and internal testing,” said Michael Hurley, VP sales and marketing for Fibertech. “This recently completed installation is our customer’s first small cell to carry live commercial traffic and demonstrates our ability to provide a complete end-to-end solution for this growing technology.”

Helping Wireless Carriers Increase Broadband Network Reach and Capacity
While metro small cells look somewhat similar to outdoor Distributed Antenna Systems nodes, they have their own unique deployment requirements. Fibertech expects small cell installations will be part of the solution for wireless carriers to increase broadband network reach and capacity.

Since its inception, Fibertech has a significant position in the wireless sector, holding contracts with all of the major cellular carriers. The company has built out fiber to thousands of cell towers across its entire eleven-state footprint.

The company has networks operational in Pittsburgh, PA; Indianapolis, IN; Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Toledo, OH ; Providence, RI; Hartford, Bridgeport, Stamford, Danbury, New London and New Haven, CT; Springfield and Worcester, MA; Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, Binghamton, White Plains, and Albany, NY; Dover and Wilmington, DE; Montgomery County, MD; Trenton, Newark and Atlantic City, NJ; and Philadelphia. Fibertech also recently announced network expansion plans for Detroit.
