When it comes to 5G, RLS-CMC, Inc. is quite familiar with the “race” that’s underway. As an experienced organization that specializes in the delivery of large-scale indoor and outdoor distributed antenna systems (DAS) and small cell networks, RLS-CMC understands expectations when it comes to powering the 5G market, especially since 5G connections are forecast to reach a figure between 20 million and 100 million by 2021.
“We’re committed to deploying as much as we can as fast as we can, especially when it comes to our carrier clients,” said Amy Hodge, Lead Project Manager. “Rolling DAS out quickly is our mantra in today’s world.”
Since 2002, RLS-CMC has been keeping users connected in every environment imaginable. The company has unparalleled experience in the DAS industry — having installed hundreds of systems throughout the country — which allows them to coordinate multiple trades at a high level and complete numerous activities concurrently, for a shorter downtime to the customer. With 5G on the horizon, RLS-CMC is excited to contribute to the advancement of connected devices creating a “smart society,” lower costs, lower battery consumption, lower latency and improved support of device-to-device communication.
Since the telecommunications industry is ever-evolving, RLS-CMC recognizes that one challenge in today’s “race to 5G” is that all carriers want to turn sites on yesterday…and their organization is ready to provide a solution as spending on 5G mobile infrastructure for 2021 is forecast to be approximately 2.3 billion U.S. dollars.
“When a company like ours is entrusted to integrate wireless infrastructure or set up a network, we take our mission seriously,” said Michael Burke, Vice President of Real Estate and Business Development. “Helping clients achieve their goals by deploying the 5G setup quickly via a turnkey solution is our trademark.”
RLS-CMC can complete a turnkey solution by designing and deploying DAS (indoor or outdoor) that meets the carrier specifications while connecting with the needs of a specific customer. “We’ll take care of everything from soup to nuts – planning, designing, permitting. We offer a full complement of services which makes deploying 5G nodes more palatable for customers,” added Burke.
RLS-CMC accomplishes this by liaising with multiple stakeholders – cities, municipalities, contractors, carriers, the public and more. Using their proprietary scheduling of tradespeople and a process where all parties can agree on the standards to follow, they can systematically go to market and have left the competition scrambling to replicate their processes. This decreases the overall project timeline and allows DAS and small cell sites to come to fruition quickly, which is especially crucial as getting 5G up and running will enable easier streaming of high-definition media in densely populated areas or when out of reach of WiFi hotspots.
Working with both indoor and outdoor installations, RLS-CMC installs neutral host systems and appreciates that many of these sites will upgrade to 5G — which aims to speed up data communication by up to three times compared to 4G LTE — so they’re already preparing for the blitz. “We realize what’s coming with 5G, so we’re scaling up with certified technicians, engineers and electricians to anticipate our customers’ needs and deliver when the time comes,” said Hodge.
RLS-CMC is an “organization of leaders,” deploying infrastructure quickly and cost-effectively because of its people. “Our team of experienced engineers, project managers, contractors and more are exceptional,” said Burke. “It’s not only the expertise that each individual brings but the collective teamwork that occurs which allows us to thrive in the fast-paced world of telecommunications.”
The company accomplishes its turnkey projects by offering several services, allowing its clients to focus on the big picture while they take care of project-level responsibilities. Their focus is on saving clients’ time and money, liaising with the right partners to complete a job and delivering superior quality standards.
RLS-CMC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, and partners with venues, wireless service providers, neutral hosts, carriers, municipalities, and utilities across the United States. For more information or to contact a representative, visit rls-cmc.com.
