- Spectrum expands ADEX subsidiary into Canada
- Company continues international operations in Puerto Rico, U.S. mainland, Hawaii, and U.S. Virgin Islands
- SGSI wins key two-year, nationwide, engineering-services contract to support 5G deployment by tier-1 infrastructure aggregator
A recent announcement from Spectrum Global Solutions Inc. (OTCQB: SGSI) shows the company is getting down to business in Canada. Spectrum is expanding its ADEX subsidiary into Canada as part of the company’s continued international expansion efforts.
It appears to be the ideal time. Canada is racing ahead with 5G, with the University of British Columbia (UBC) carrying the torch. The renowned research academic institution has become the first 5G-smart campus in Canada, according to one news report, a move likely to turn into a trend (http://ibn.fm/E9Snq). As Canadian 5G implementation continues, Spectrum is stepping up deployment of its spectrum of telecommunications services. The company owns and operates several subsidiaries — ADEX Corporation, AW Solutions, Tropical Communications and TNS — that allow it to provide comprehensive solutions covering all aspects of wireless and fiber networks and infrastructure.
Spectrum acquired ADEX Corporation, an Alpharetta, Georgia-based company, and ADEX Puerto Rico LLC — both companies that offer turnkey wireless and wireline telecom services and project professional and technical staffing — in early 2018. ADEX has been in operation since 1993 supporting international telecommunications companies throughout project life cycles of existing and next-generation network deployments (http://ibn.fm/xus0H).
Now ADEX Canada has been formed to address network-infrastructure service opportunities with both new and existing tier-1 clients in the Canadian market. The subsidiary will offer turnkey professional service solutions that include engineering, furnishing, installation, testing and integration services for wireline, wireless, broadband, VoIP, 4G/5G and public-safety communications networks. ADEX service capabilities extend from the most basic installation functions to the most advanced engineering challenges, which allows companies to increase the capabilities of their existing departments without having to add personnel, facilities or equipment.
Tier-1 telecommunications companies build and own the basic infrastructure of the internet, such as the undersea cables that connect the United States and Europe. In the U.S. internet region, the present tier-1 club is an elite group of five companies consisting of AT&T, Century Link (which has absorbed Qwest and Global Crossing), NTT/Verio, Sprint (Softbank Broadband) and Verizon (http://ibn.fm/AeM2e).
Spectrum recently won a key two-year, nationwide, engineering-services contract to support a tier-1 infrastructure aggregator’s 5G project. The contract is for outside plant-engineering services surrounding an optical, fiber-fed, 200+ site, metropolitan-area, 5G infrastructure deployment (http://ibn.fm/GB69w).
AW Solutions Inc. and AW Solutions Puerto Rico LLC provide best-in-class communications infrastructure deployment services to carriers, OEMs, PMOs, utilities and enterprise clients by offering full turnkey wireless and wireline service solutions. AW Solutions holds professional engineering licenses in all contiguous states and Hawaii as well as in the District of Columbia; the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador; and in Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Tropical Communications Inc. is a state-licensed electrical and underground utility contractor headquartered in Miami, Florida, that has been in operation since 1984. The company provides all types of communications and structured wiring services and solutions for facility infrastructure.
TNS Inc. is a Des Plaines, Illinois-based company that offers design, installation and maintenance of structured cabling-system solutions to the enterprise market. With its operations nationwide and abroad, TNS has been supporting telecommunication networks for more than 16 years.
Through its subsidiaries, Spectrum Global Solutions has developed into a comprehensive, single-source provider of professional services and solutions specializing in the development, deployment and maintenance of wireline, wireless, Distributed Antenna System (DAS), small cell, and fiber networks and infrastructure. The company’s services range in scope from a single activity to multiyear, multi-region, large-scale turnkey development contracts with a deepening pool of international, national, regional and local clients. Spectrum Global Solutions has completed more than 150,000 project activities on wireless, DAS, wireline and fiber networks across the United States by utilizing licensed professional engineers, project managers, technicians and general contractors.
