FARMINGTON HILLS, MI, July 25, 2019 – RF Connect, a national leader of enterprise wireless solutions, today announced it has achieved certification as both a CommScope Inbuilding Wireless (IBW) Premier Partner and a Ruckus Networks (now CommScope) CBRS Partner. Access to the expanded solutions portfolio empowers the company to deliver enterprise indoor cellular coverage as well as business- and mission-critical connectivity for users, services and smart building applications that require improved performance, predictability and security.

“RF Connect has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with CommScope,” said Leonard A. Kruszewski, President at RF Connect. “This partnership positions us to offer enterprise customers solutions for more intelligent, safer and better-connected buildings that deliver superior tenant experience, higher revenue potential and operational benefits.”

The new CBRS LTE portfolio from Ruckus Networks, which consists of CBRS-band LTE APs and associated cloud services, allows organizations to deploy private LTE networks to address a wide range of use cases including data connectivity, staff communications, building monitoring, remote access control, video security, environment control and more, as well as industry-specific applications such as patient monitoring, asset tracking and location-based services.

“Building owners seek smart building technology solutions that deliver operational efficiencies and real time data, while enterprise tenants leverage mobility for business applications, support of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives and to appeal to the connectivity preferences of millennial stakeholders,” added Kruszewski. “Ruckus Private LTE solutions greatly expand the wireless toolkit. As a result, RF Connect expects to be better able to address the connectivity requirements of more of the market.”
