Cambridge-based Zinwave, a global provider of distributed antenna systems for in-building cellular coverage, is expanding its commercial presence in the US in response to growing demand for anywhere access to 4G LTE services via Smartphones.
The UK team will be present at the DAS Congress, taking place at the Aria Resort, Las Vegas from June 16–18 June.
Zinwave’s short-term objective to secure a greater share of America’s in-building DAS market following its acquisition by McWane Inc, a privately held manufacturing company. McWane also owns a global group of wireless technology companies.
As part of a global scale-up, Greg Watson has joined Zinwave as director for sales in its western region. He has over 22 years’ experience in wireless communications and has held senior positions at AT&T Mobility and TE Connectivity
Patrick Pesnell has joined as services manager for the western region He has been involved in the wireless industry since 2001. He has extensive experience of macro and in-building network design and has held senior positions with both carriers and vendors.
Zinwave is continuing its recruitment programme with some imminent openings with more to follow by the end of 2014.
Laddy Fleming, EVP, global sales & support said: “While the allocation of 4G frequency bands remain unpredictable it is difficult for building owners to provide the capacity needed for 4G coverage without compromising on existing services.
“Our DAS supports all commercial and public safety frequencies and avoids the need to ‘rip and replace’ existing installations to support new services as they become available.”
Zinwave has already deployed systems into multiple building types, including the the Pepsi Center Arena, Denver, Colorado, the Constitution Center, Washington DC, and the J.W Marriott Hotel, San Antonio, Texas.
