NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Gary Jabara, CEO of Mobilitie, the largest privately-held wireless infrastructure provider in the United States, presented at the 2016 Wells Fargo Convergence & Connectivity Symposium moderated by Jennifer Fritzsche of Wells Fargo Securities.
Jabara’s session covered the progress the wireless industry is making in working together with federal, state and local communities to develop and adopt broadband-friendly rights-of-way management policies and practices that can enable carriers to more quickly roll-out their next-generation network deployments. Jabara noted that Mobilitie is moving through the zoning and permitting stage much faster, overcoming many of the regulations hurdles that have often delayed or deterred infrastructure investment and broadband deployment in the past.
“Carriers are moving full steam ahead with their network upgrade projects and we predict more than a million small cell deployments within five years,” said Gary Jabara, CEO of Mobilitie. “Our close cooperation with local authorities has allowed us to navigate bureaucratic processes and help service providers bring greater connectivity to communities across the country more quickly than ever before.”
As one example, Sprint, whose stock has risen since the event, is using Mobilitie to roll out a previously reported estimate of approximately 70,000 small cells in cities across the country as it looks to densify its network. “I am very bullish on Sprint and T-Mobile and believe that their network investment strategies will be a fairly immediate win-win for the company, cities that want to explore new IoT-driven connected city applications and individuals who want unfettered access to fast and reliable wireless service,” Jabara continued. “We have built thousands of sites and have thousands of approved permits in hand and we don’t see this slowing anytime soon.”
