Nokia Expands To China

Download PDF

nokiaNokia Networks and China Mobile have just made a deal with one another allowing Nokia to bring its 4G network to China.  It will cover 18 Chinese provinces and major cities.  The agreement states that Nokia will be managing Network implementation, planning, and training services.  The deal includes Nokia’s indoor and outdoor base stations from the Flexi product family and a cloud enabled NetAct network management system.

Nokia is – globally – a leading network operator.  They have been heavily focusing on improving their network coverage and spreading it to areas all over the world in order to expand their customer base and increase profit.  4G LTE network coverage is currently in demand in dozens of countries due to higher numbers of network subscribers in more areas.  4G is the main network right now because many people have upgraded from 3G, and 5G will most likely not be available until 2020.  Nokia is focusing on the present by continuing to push their network coverage to reach places all over the world, including China.

China is a top business and technology filled country in our world.  Everyday they create new and innovative technology that changes the world, causing workers and businesses to move there or at least frequently travel to their major cities.  They need to offer the most reliable coverage in order to support their large populations and the high number of tourists and workers coming in for business.  Their major cities, like Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangdong are centers of business and technology.  Nokia’s 4G network will expand to those three main cities, as well as others.

Antennas Supply provides the equipment and installation needed by Nokia and other companies in order for them to properly and successfully expand their networks.  If interest in buying or selling this equipment, or requesting installation services, please contact Antenna Supply at 877-878-9134 or email us at sales@antennasupply.com.

Company Thrives Over Aereo’s Downfall

Download PDF

aereoOn Wednesday, June 25 2014, The United States Supreme Court made a decision that has forever changed the future of Aereo.  This has caused Aereo to “temporarily” shut down their online streaming services.  Aereo is facing a ton of licensing fees for all their illegal broadcasting.  These include their violation of Federal copyright laws.  They were providing their customers with television signals from the air, which is only allowed if licensing fees are paid.  If they pay all of the fees they owe, then they will be allowed to start up their services again.  This negatively affects all of their customers, but also opens a door for other companies.

While Aereo figures out their plan of action, an antennas supplier from Missouri rises to power.  Missouri’s Antenna Direct is taking advantage of Aereo’s failure by attending to their customers.  They are giving away 1000 free antennas to the customers of Aereo in order to make up for their current lack of broadcasting signals. These free antennas include installation accessories, bringing Aereo’s subscribers TV signals for free.  They went about informing Aereo’s customers about this deal by posting it on social media.

This was an extremely smart move by Antenna Direct.  They turned a bad situation around and took something positive out of it.  Aereo will most likely be down for quite some time and because Antenna Direct made such a nice gesture to Aereo’s customers, they might bring their business to Antenna Direct instead.  I give kudos to Antenna Direct and their fast and smart reaction to Aereo’s unfortunate mishap.

Antennas Supply has supported Aereo in the past and currently provides equipment for dozens of other carriers and manufacturers.  Antenna Supply follows all necessary laws and regulations.  If interested in buying or selling equipment, or inquiring installation services, please contact Antenna Supply at 877-878-9134 or email us at sales@antennasupply.com.

AT&T Brings Mississippi the Coverage They Needed

Download PDF

missipppiMississippi is a state that is not as up-to-date with the latest technology as other states in the U.S.  They wanted to become more tech-savvy in order to boost the economy of their state, as well as improve coverage for the sake of their citizens. Mississippi was determined to get top-notch technology – specifically 4G network coverage – delivered to their state.  They accomplished this thanks to AT&T.

18 individual counties throughout Mississippi will now gain access to high speed 4G network coverage.  Residents of these 18 counties have been positively affected by AT&T’s plans to enhance 4G and small cell coverage in areas throughout the U.S.  These Mississippi counties are now part of AT&T’s 4G long-term evolution network.

This is all a under AT&T’s Project Velocity IP three-year investment project.  It began in 2012 and hopes to reach its goals by 2016.  AT&T wants to extend their coverage to as many towns and cities as possible across the nation.  They plan to install macro cell sites, small cell equipment, and Distributed Antenna Systems.

Companies have been starting to really focus on small cell technology in the past year because it is the technology that will better the future.  For Mississippi to connect itself to small cells through AT&T, it is fully embracing today’s technology and hopefully they will attract business to their state as a result.

AT&T’s Mississippi President, Mayo Flynt, stated “Our goal is for our customers to have an extraordinary experience, and they’ll be able to download, upload, stream and game faster than ever before on our 4G LTE network.”

Antenna Supply can provide you with the right equipment and installation in order to reach the highest 4G LTE network connections and coverage.  Leading carriers like AT&T and Verizon use this network equipment to sufficiently satisfy their customer’s needs.  If interested in buying or selling this equipment, please contact Antenna Supply at 877-878-9134 or email us at sales@antennasupply.com.
