Quantum Wireless has deployed a new high-speed, broadband cellular network at the five-star Faena Hotel and Faena Forum in Miami Beach, along with a new OnGo™ private LTE network using Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), in preparation for the nation's largest sporting event.

Quantum, a member of the CBRS Alliance since 2018, received approval from the Federal Communications Commission for the CBRS network as an initial experimental deployment of the new technology.

The Quantum CBRS network and distributed antenna system (DAS) are designed to improve wireless coverage, capacity and data speeds during events at both locations. With CBRS-capable handsets, users can communicate privately and securely over the Quantum CBRS network, independently from cellular networks and public WiFi systems.

The Quantum DAS is a neutral-host network, capable of providing service for all major wireless carriers inside both venues. The nation's two largest wireless carriers have joined the Quantum DAS, giving their customers the benefit of improved service at the Faena, with a third carrier slated to join later in 2020.

"The Faena Miami Beach is a perennial award-winning luxury resort, known for its VIP clientele and events. Their guests are accustomed to superior service, and we are proud to enable superior mobile connectivity for Faena guests, staff and visitors," said Dan Harkness, CEO of Quantum Wireless. "We are thrilled to have been chosen to support the Faena's technology needs with the installation of this new distributed antenna system, and to pilot this ground-breaking new CBRS technology just in time for the nation's largest sporting event to converge on Miami."
