Innovative, reverse-auction small cell attachment marketplace named a finalist in “Best Next Gen Wi-Fi Network Infrastructure” category
Chantilly, VA, November 3, 2016 – SmallCellSite.com, a new online marketplace that connects mobile operators, fiber owners, and property owners so they can quickly and easily buy and sell small cell installation locations, is shortlisted for the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) annual Industry Awards. The awards recognize and celebrate excellence in wireless innovation.
Small cells have become a fixture for mobile operators as they try to meet the growing demand for network capacity. The reduced form factor of small cells opens up alternate attachment opportunities, including on apartment roofs, shopping centers, billboards, and other locations.
Powered by TeleWorld Solutions, SmallCellSite.com offers significant benefits to both property owners and mobile operators. The site uses an interactive mapping and photo-based interface that makes it possible for property owners nationwide to upload property listing information, receive suggested pricing based on proprietary algorithms, and market directly to the largest mobile operators in the U.S. Mobile operators can search and uncover key information about property asset sources including dimensions, features, pricing, and distance to fiber for small cell, macro-cell, C-RAN, ODAS, Wi-Fi and IoT deployments.
This is the second major award for SmallCellSite.com in only a few months of its existence. The service was unveiled in September at CTIA Super Mobility 2016, where it was named a winner in the “In-Building Wireless (Small Cell, Wi-Fi, LAN)” category at CTIA’s Emerging Technology Awards. Since then, all major carriers have joined the services, and nearly 100,000 assets have been added.
“We are honored that SmallCellSite.com has been shortlisted for this esteemed industry award, and are thrilled that the site has gotten such recognition in such a short amount of time,” said Shervin Gerami, chief executive officer, TeleWorld Solutions. “SmallCellSite.com is a continued example of our tireless mission of continuing to innovate and bring a fresh approach to wireless challenges that become intuitive and powerful solutions for our customers.”
The winners of the WBA Industry Awards will be announced on November 16th at the San Jose, CA Wireless Global Congress.
