Belden, JMA Wireless ink partnership to offer smart building solutions
Belden, which focuses on mission-critical signal transmission, has made a strategic alliance with wireless infrastructure provider JMA Wireless for complete smart building solutions. The two partners said each company’s solutions will meet the increasing demand for integrated and intelligent systems that will improve building efficiency, reduce operating costs and decrease the number of man-hours required to keep a building functioning at peak capacity. The alliance will combine Belden’s fiber solutions, power cabling, patching solutions and custom cabinets with JMA Wireless’ distributed antenna systems (DAS), digital electricity and mounting systems, antennas and radio frequency conditioning, as well as the newly announced XRAN adaptive baseband. “By partnering with JMA Wireless, we have created the most powerful solution set in the industry for buildings that want to deploy fully converged wireless technology infrastructure,” said David Geon, vice president of sales for enterprise solutions at Belden. “The JMA Wireless and Belden alliance brings customers everything they seek in converged wireless infrastructure solutions,” said Dan Cassinelli, president of sales at JMA Wireless. Belden and JMA Wireless will work with large facilities across a variety of industries to support customers as they plan their converged infrastructure and prepare for 5G performance, the partners said. Earlier this month, JMA Wireless launched a new product dubbed TEKO Cell Hub, a fiber-connected node that supports the use of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service at 3.5 GHz. JMA Wireless said the new solution uses fiber to deliver multiple licensed carrier bands and CBRS spectrum in a single unit. This new offering works directly with the firm’s recently announced XRAN technology, a software baseband solution operating on off-the-shelf servers. The company said that the new offering was designed specifically to address the needs of enterprise buildings.
