PLANO, Texas, Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SOLiD, the leader in cellular in-building and public safety infrastructure, today announced the debut of the SOLiD GENESIS DAS for fiber-to the-edge solution needs, and announced an expanded set of capabilities for the SOLiD ALLIANCE platform to meet the needs of 5G and 4G solutions for the coming years.
Ken Sandfeld, President of SOLiD Americas, said, "The SOLiD ALLIANCE platform is a proven leader for in-building solutions such as stadiums, arenas, airports, subways, and commercial buildings. Our record of success is a testament to the platform. Today, the ALLIANCE platform already supports 5G NR (New Radio). As we look to the future, and to avoid the rip-and -replace strategy many in the industry do, we'll be enhancing platform capabilities to support CBRS, mmWave and other advanced solutions soon."
He continues, "While others talk about deploying 5G solutions, SOLiD is already deploying 5G solutions in South Korea. SOLiD has already delivered the world's first commercially deployed 5G repeater to SKT. We were selected as SKT's preferred partner on July 13, 2018 and then deployed units on December 1, 2018 when SKT did its first 5G air transmission. SKT is going to commercially deploy these over-the-air repeaters nation-wide in South Korea, starting with the Seoul metropolitan area. SOLiD will also provide 5G mobile front-haul solutions for the leading Korean MNO.
We are proud to be among the first companies in the world delivering infrastructure for 5G deployments."
Sandfeld also adds, "Here at Verizon's VZTUF XIII, we are very pleased to showcase SOLID GENESIS DAS to address the needs of customers who want a software based, fiber-to-the- edge solution, designed to meet the requirements of the middleprise market."
The GENESIS approach incorporates innovative software and hardware features that simplify installation and configuration, delivers 100% user control, and increases flexibility for all vertical market segments and applications.
With enhanced software functionality designed to lower labor cost and leverage remote configuration and commissioning combined with a standards-based, fiber-to-the-edge infrastructure, SOLiD's approach fits seamlessly with today's middleprise requirements.
SOLiD will be training attendees on SOLiD GENESIS DAS at VZTUF XIII, at the Hilton Austin Hotel, Austin, Texas. Training sessions titled "SOLiD DAS Roadmap and Roundtable Discussion" will provide hands-on training of SOLID's GENESIS DAS solutions. One session will run on Monday, January 14 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm in Room 400. The second session will be held on Tuesday, January 15 from 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm in Room 408.
