Wireless Coverage Enhanced At AmericasMart Atlanta Campus

ATLANTA, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AmericasMart ® Atlanta has partnered with Verizon Wireless, operator of the nation's largest 4G LTE network and largest, most reliable 3G network, to create a fully functional wireless communications environment spanning its entire facility of more than seven million square feet.

Installation is now complete on a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that will deliver improved wireless coverage, capacity and data speeds for Verizon Wireless customers on every floor, in every showroom and exhibit hall across the three-building AmericasMart campus.

The installation has been completed in time for the January 2013 markets – The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market ® and The Atlanta International Area Rug Market ® featuring the National Oriental Rug Show (NORS).  January market buyers and sellers should expect to experience Verizon Wireless service across the AmericasMart campus.

Additionally, Verizon Wireless products and services will be available for purchase onsite starting with the January 2013 markets.

The Verizon Wireless partnership achieves a major milestone in AmericasMart's mission to create optimal business advantages for all customers, notes Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of parent company AMC, Inc.

"This takes us into a new universe of opportunities powered by technology innovations that will reshape how business is done," Portman adds.  "We are working on several opportunities to enhance the AmericasMart market experience, plus other new advancements to come, all resulting from this strategic technology investment," Portman adds.

The DAS includes separate antenna locations mounted throughout the campus to boost network strength and capacity. In addition to ensuring calls are successfully connected, the DAS allows smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to access the Internet, send text messages and quickly share photos and videos to social networking sites.
