“The almost unanimous approval of the Extenet DAS network by the Yonkers City Council was partly the result of hard work by Extenet,” said Yonkers City Council President.
“This is one more example where city leadership, community engagement and business participation achieved an agreement that benefits our residents.”
Connecting New York With Distributed Networks
New York City is by far the largest and the most populous city in the United States, and it is among the leading financial, political and cultural centers in the world while home to approximately 8.6 million people. The city covers 303 square miles with roughly 27,000 inhabitants per square mile. More than 50 million foreign and domestic tourists visit New York each year. As a result, these demographics put tremendous strain on the existing wireless infrastructure, and Extenet works with the national wireless carriers to enhance their coverage across the city that never sleeps.
- 8.6 million residents, America’s densest city
- Dense, high-capacity fiber backbone
- Over 50 square miles covered
- Supports all four national wireless carriers
- 4G & 5G service-ready
Extenet addresses the demand for reliable mobile connectivity for outdoor and indoor environments across the city. Extenet owns an extensive fiber footprint and has installed an expansive outdoor distributed network in Manhattan supporting multiple carriers, including coverage in some marquee areas like Central Park and Bryant Park. As part of the extensive fiber footprint, Extenet has also built out multiple centralized hubs, providing the necessary space and infrastructure to support its indoor and outdoor deployments from a single location; the solution provides numerous benefits with regard to scaling, design flexibility and economics.
In addition, Extenet operates an expansive distributed network in some upstate New York locales like Yonkers and Mount Vernon. These implementations utilize an extensive fiber network bringing high-quality mobile service to the two Westchester County cities with more than 250,000 residents between them. Low-powered, small form-factor equipment placed on top of public infrastructure has helped protect the aesthetics of the communities.
