CEL-FI by Nextivity Honored with 2019 Best in Biz Award

Company recognized for disrupting the status quo when it comes to solving the issue of poor indoor cellular coverage

November 27, 2019 – Nextivity Inc. announced today that it has been named a winner in the category of Most Innovative Company of the Year (Small), in the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.

Over the last year, Nextivity has experienced significant market traction with its newer product lines; CEL-FI QUATRA, CEL-FI SOLO, CEL-FI GO+, and CEL-FI GO RED. Each offer flexible configuration options to fit different price points and unique deployment needs, and are powered by Nextivity’s intelligent baseband processors. CEL-FI adoption is accelerating rapidly with the support of Nextivity’s maturing and expanding global network of partners, distributors, and integrators, who recommend CEL-FI products on a regular basis.

“We are seeing more use cases for CEL-FI technology beyond our main focus of In-Building Wireless, such as IoT and Public Safety,” says Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “As our partner list continues to grow, so do the number of verticals and companies deploying Nextivity solutions.  CEL-FI products are scalable and offer flexible configuration options to fit different price points and unique deployment needs.”

Since 2011, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants have spanned the spectrum, from the most innovative local companies and start-ups to some of the most recognizable global brands. With more than 700 entries, the 9th annual program attracted a record number of entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and spanning all geographic regions and industries in the U.S. and Canada. Winners are determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled from some of the most respected newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America.

“Reading the latest batch of Best in Biz Award entries is pure inspiration,” said Dale Dauten, King Features Syndicate, having judged eight of the last nine Best in Biz Awards competitions. “You can feel the energy, the heat of new stars being born, and it makes you want to go out and try something new.”
