New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Selects Corning

Preparing for the International CTIA WIRELESS 2012 conference, the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center has selected the distributed antenna system (DAS) from Corning MobileAccess.

As more than 40,000 visitors are expected to attend this year's show, this solution from Corning MobileAccess will provide quick uninterrupted access to voice and data throughout the convention center.

The Corning MobileAccess Total DAS portfolio of in-building wireless infrastructure solutions provides dedicated RF intelligence and flexible architectures. For the newest breed of mobile devices, these solutions facilitate a variety of technologies and advanced 4G LTE.

The companies can now receive an offering, adopted and installed in numerous deployments all over the world. This includes 200 LTE venues and the largest DAS deployment (capacity) in the United States.

At the convention center, DAS will enhance and improve coverage throughout the complex. The site usually hosts thousands of visitors at the same time. The new Corning DAS is expected to improve wireless voice and data service across all carrier networks, including those running 4G LTE, the company stated in a press release.

“We're thrilled to be able to provide always-on cellular connectivity to the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center with our wireless operator and integrator community," said Mike Genovese, senior vice president, Wireless Networks and New Business Development at Corning Cable Systems. "Our solution is ideal for facilities of this size and topology because of its flexible remote power options and advanced cabling offering for uninterrupted coverage and capacity, a combination that is bound to make conference attendees and visitors very happy.”

The company recently expanded its market in the healthcare community with impressive growth in the past year, mainly due to the addition of several new healthcare institutions to Corning MobileAccess' client roster. These include St. Joseph Mercy Oakland and the Medical University of South Carolina.

These hospitals, along with Florida Hospital, have installed Corning MobileAccess' distributed antenna system (DAS) to improve cellular signals.
