Commdex Awarded Contract to Upgrade MARTA’s Communications Infrastructure
Atlanta, GA, April 26th, 2017 – Commdex, a leading systems integration and engineering firm, was awarded a major contract from Motorola Solutions to upgrade, enhance and expand Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) to improve voice, data and public safety signals inside critical buildings, tunnels, and stations for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA).
For over a quarter of a century, MARTA has moved over 3.5 billion people throughout Atlanta and the surrounding cities, and is today one of the top ten transportation agencies in the United States. To continue to meet the needs of a growing city, MARTA’s communications infrastructure must be built to handle high volumes of network traffic daily, particularly so that first responders can maintain radio communication with each other and dispatchers in case of an emergency.
Leveraging its expertise in all facets of DAS deployment, Commdex will replace the existing communications infrastructure at more than forty MARTA locations. Once installed, equipment at each location will be optimized and tested to ensure that system performance exceeds requirements. Additionally, Commdex will implement new complete DAS solutions, including design, hardware, installation, optimization and testing, at three prominent MARTA locations. Commdex’s solution will not only extend wireless coverage and capacity to areas of highly concentrated users, but will be designed with the flexibility and scalability to meet MARTA’s existing and future public safety and critical communications needs.
“We are proud to partner with Motorola Solutions to implement a DAS solution that will provide consistent, highly reliable wireless coverage inside MARTA locations where the ability to exchange information and adequately communicate is imperative for daily operations,” said Prince Niyyar, Commdex’s President. “This DAS architecture is built with the guarantee that it will successfully enable maintainable communications among first responders during a crisis, allowing them to coordinate efforts and respond more efficiently to emergencies.”
