EdgeConneX claims small cell wins in Vermont, Virginia

EdgeConneX, which provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), said it will deploy an outdoor small cell network in Vermont for CoverageCo, a provider of carrier- and technology-neutral cellular coverage services to underserved markets. The deployment is partially funded by the Vermont Telecommunications Authority (VTA) via an award to CoverageCo. "Though very few successful deployments of small cell networks have been deployed, we knew that this solution would be the most effective way to extend network coverage in such rough terrain," said Richard Biby, CEO of CoverageCo. In addition, EdgeConneX said it has been contracted for "another significant build in northern Virginia for a national Tier 1 wireless carrier focusing on data capacity and in-building challenges" but did not name the operator.
