Port Authority Selects Boingo Wireless for Cellular and Wi-Fi Services at World Trade Center

NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES – August 11, 2014 – Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced a supplemental agreement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (Port Authority) allowing New York Telecom Partners, LLC (NYTP), a Boingo Wireless subsidiary, to design, install and operate neutral host cellular Distributed Antenna System (DAS) and Wi-Fi networks in select areas of the World Trade Center in Manhattan.

Per the terms of the multi-year agreement, Boingo will design and manage state-of-the-art, multi-carrier cellular DAS networks within the new World Trade Center (WTC) Port Authority Transportation Hub, the Vehicle Security Center, retail spaces and other core facilities throughout the buildings.

The cellular DAS system will provide comprehensive coverage to more than 1.6 million square feet of the World Trade Center. Boingo will also install high density Wi-Fi networks, providing complimentary Wi-Fi access to visitors throughout the public areas of the Transportation Hub, retail spaces and other core locations. Wireless services are scheduled to launch timed to the opening of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in 2015.

“The new World Trade Center will be a vital business, commuter and tourist center in Lower Manhattan, visited by hundreds of thousands of tech-savvy people each day who are looking to stay connected,” said Nick Hulse, president of Boingo Wireless. “We’re proud to continue our relationship with the Port Authority, and to enable World Trade Center visitors’ digital lifestyles through our advanced, high-capacity cellular and Wi-Fi networks.”

The Transportation Hub is projected to be the third largest in New York City, serving more than an estimated 100 million passengers and visitors annually. The Transportation Hub will provide pedestrian access to the WTC, the World Financial Center, PATH and the New York Subway system, and will feature major retail spaces. The Vehicle Security Center will be a key transportation center, welcoming all building tenants, administration and visitor vehicles. Boingo currently provides DAS and Wi-Fi services at Port Authority’s John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), and Newark (EWR) airports, as well as DAS services in the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels.

 

Dali Wireless Unveils HDS™ (High Density System) for Intelligent Wireless Coverage and Dynamic Capacity Allocation

Menlo Park, Calif. – June 23, 2014 – Dali Wireless, Inc., a global provider of the advanced all-digital RF Router™, today unveils High Density System (HDS™). HDS is the only solution on the market that can allocate coverage and capacity dynamically and simultaneously. This revolutionary platform makes it suitable for many situations that require dynamic capacity allocation, intelligent coverage, and intelligent interference mitigation. It can also serve as an end-to-end digital Distributed Antenna System (DAS).

Based on the RF Router technology, HDS delivers the high capacity of a macro-cell, the flexible coverage of DAS with the tiny footprint of a pico-cell without traditional interference challenges. HDS is the only digital-to-the-edge “fiber-to-antenna” Radio Distribution System on the market. It is technology-, vendor-, and band-agnostic. HDS supports up to 10Gbps / 300MHz over a single fiber, leading to efficient data transfer and more data throughput. In addition, it is the only solution on the market that meets the 3GPP MIMO signal requirement for delay in-balance of maximum 65ns. With Dali’s patented dynamic capacity allocation and digital RF Router technology, it has an optical link budget sufficient for operators to deploy over a long range, as high as 40km, without signal degradation. This results in less noise interference and less equipment required.

As mobile connectivity becomes ubiquitous, coverage is also needed in rural areas. However, rural areas tend to have low density of users and business economics sometimes do not justify a separate deployment for the rural areas. With HDS, operators can now install a solution in a major city and simultaneously route the capacity to the nearby rural area where coverage is needed. Operators will have the flexibility to allocate resources dynamically to best utilize the scarce spectrum and provide a truly future-proof solution.

In a typical urban deployment, operators need to support the wireless peak load for each individual building where mobile usage and density are high. With HDS, capacity over-provisioning is no longer an issue. HDS can dynamically pool capacity together, and route it to where and when capacity is needed. HDS transforms any radio frequency signals from base stations into IP, CPRI, or IP/CPRI-like packets to allow “any-to-any RF routing” within a software-defined virtualized radio distribution network. With this revolutionary approach, operators can address the challenges and limitations of traditional DAS including link budget, capacity over-provisioning, interference and handovers.

“HDS is uniquely different from both conventional analog and digital systems. HDS is built upon a decade worth of patented digital signal processing, proprietary RF power amplifiers and advanced networking technologies; rather than incrementally building on current DAS concepts,” said Albert Lee, CEO of Dali Wireless. “This puts Dali’s customers in a position to maximize ROIs in this rapidly evolving telecommunications ecosystem. HDS is a differentiator for our customers to monetize trends now and in the future.”
