ExteNet Systems is emphasizing a “Fiber-First” strategy which helps deliver Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) offerings for customers, the firm said in a release.
“We distinguish ourselves with our Fiber-First approach while delivering digital transformation for our customers,” said Jim Hyde, ExteNet President and CEO. “Our future-proof networks are designed and built to serve mission-critical, ultra-fast and high-bandwidth connectivity requirements while scaling effectively to address future needs. While our fiber and small cell infrastructure is foundational for 5G services offered by mobile network operators (MNOs) both outdoors and indoors, our edge infrastructure and edge hub locations will power 5G for all our customers including MNOs, property owners, enterprises, data center and cloud providers.”
“Building high-capacity fiber to the edge and powering the network edge with future-proof infrastructure remain critical for 5G,” said Kevin Gallagher, SVP of product and marketing at ExteNet Systems. “Whether our customers need fiber connected small cells, neutral host in-building wireless networks, private wireless networks utilizing the CBRS 3.5 GHz spectrum, building automation, mobile edge computing with ExteNet’s Edge Hub or enterprise connectivity solutions, ExteNet has an integrated Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) offering backed by our 24×7 network operations center (NOC). ExteNet’s Fiber-First unlocks the intrinsic value of 5G for our customers and we are looking forward to showcasing our fiber-connected infrastructure in key markets during the Metro Connect 2021 virtual event.”
ExteNet noted that a “Fiber-First” approach ensures that the underlying infrastructure is robust, scalable and carrier-grade to deliver advanced connectivity for its customers.
ExteNet also highlighted that prioritizing fiber infrastructure promises a simplified path towards:
-Enterprise fiber services, where both dark and lit fiber services can be delivered to enterprises for mission-critical and low-latency applications.
-Outdoor small cells where MNOs can utilize either Extenet’s turnkey approach or opt for a fiber or node-only build for 4G and 5G mobile connectivity and benefit cities, townships and communities.
-Neutral-Host In-building Wireless (IBW) networks that are built to deliver 4G and 5G mobile connectivity from within, with a fiber-to-the-edge architecture.
-Private wireless networks that are required for digital transformation and/or mission-critical services for businesses, healthcare organizations, sports and entertainment venues and educational institutions.
-Building Communications Infrastructure (BCI) where building owners can utilize the firm’s managed riser fiber to deliver 21st-century smart buildings.
-Edge hubs, whether in-building or outdoors in a carrier-grade environment, to deliver low-latency and feature-rich applications leveraging mobile edge compute (MEC), collocation capability and Extenet’s edge hub build-to-suit offering.
