TMC Names CEL-FI QUATRA a 2017 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award Winner

CEL-FI QUATRA recognized as an innovative solution for the in-building cellular space serving the SME market.

Nextivity Inc. announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has recognized the CEL-FI QUATRA in-building enterprise cellular system with a 2017 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

“This recognition is further validation that CEL-FI QUATRA is meeting the demand for an efficient, cost-effective solution for the small to mid-sized enterprise market,” said Werner Sievers, CEO of Nextivity. “In addition, CEL-FI QUATRA can be operational within weeks, unlike typical DAS solutions that can take up to two years to deploy.”

CEL-FI QUATRA is an active DAS hybrid that is scalable, cost-efficient, and delivers high-quality, in-building cellular coverage in venues up to 200,000 sq. ft. As a hybrid solution, it combines the best of active DAS and widely adopted CEL-FI technologies. CEL-FI QUATRA operates in off-air mode, or it can be integrated with carrier small cell equipment and operated in distributed small cell mode to create a Supercell. A Supercell (i.e., a large single cell versus multiple independent small cells) provides uniform access to the capacity introduced by the small cell to improve cellular coverage in larger or densely populated areas. Supercells are inherently uncomplicated from a planning and deployment point of view, and are far more resilient to the potential of interference or performance degradation considerations.

“Congratulations to Nextivity for being honored with a Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “CEL-FI QUATRA is truly an innovative product and is amongst the best solutions brought to market in the past twelve months that facilitates business-transforming voice, data and video communications. I look forward to continued excellence from Nextivity in 2018 and beyond.”
