Zinwave Partners Vertical Bridge to Offer New In-Building Wireless Solutions

Zinwave, a global provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, along with Vertical Bridge, the largest private owner and manager of communication infrastructure in the U.S. has announced a unique partnership between the two companies to provide in-building wireless connectivity. Under terms of a Master Services Agreement, Vertical Bridge will offer Zinwave’s UNItivity Wideband Distributed Antenna Systems (UNItivity) as a preferred solution for in-building wireless challenges with Zinwave providing equipment, service, and maintenance capabilities. Vertical Bridge will also directly manage all customer relationships.

The agreement represents a new business model for acquiring in-building wireless infrastructure. While the current approach requires customers to spend CapEx dollars to provide an in-building system, under the new model, users can now switch to an OpEx approach.

With a portfolio of more than 52,000 communication sites, 3,000 of which represent real estate building assets, Vertical Bridge plans to offer Zinwave’s UNItivity platform and services to mobile operators and private companies that wish to enable or enhance in-building wireless capabilities, whether for public safety or cellular communications.
