American Tower Corporation Completes Network Optimization Project In Time For The 2012 Democratic National Convention

Stocks in this article: AMT

American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) announced today the deployment of a network optimization project for leading telecommunications service providers which will support the increased communication and data needs of the more than 35,000 delegates, visitors and members of the media who are expected to attend the 2012 Democratic National Convention being held this week in Charlotte, NC.

The projects will enable telecommunications service providers to expand their existing network capacity in efforts to meet the surge in subscriber demand that is expected to result from attendance at the convention. The project consists of three solutions: an outdoor Wi-Fi network, an In-Building Distributed Antenna System (IDAS) network and an Outdoor Distributed Antenna System (ODAS) network.

"All three of these solutions required a significant amount of orchestration and coordination. We were pleased to be able to deliver these solutions in time for such a high-profile, communication-driven event," said Gerard Ainsztein, American Tower's Senior Vice President, Managed Networks. "This has been a very exciting project, and it couldn’t have come together without the assistance of the customers, local utilities and the City of Charlotte, NC."

American Tower deployed 20 Wi-Fi access points, 45 ODAS nodes that were installed upon existing street lights and structures and an IDAS network located in a major Charlotte hotel. While this equipment is leased for the use of the existing customers, the core infrastructure is capable of supporting additional services, such as small cell deployments or additional carriers’ heterogeneous networks. For more information about American Tower’s Managed Network capabilities and solutions, please contact Alex Gamota, Vice President, DAS Real Estate at or 781-926-4902.
