Scalable Wireless Infastructure Solutions
McKinstry’s team of wireless experts provide turnkey infrastructure solutions for cellular and IoT connectivity. By creating a wireless ecosystem that seamlessly connects people and devices in any built environment, we help improve coverage, capacity and safety. We handle every aspect of establishing optimum connectivity—from designing and building the most efficient system, to helping operate, maintain and monitor the system throughout the life of the building.
McKinstry offers financial flexibility to our clients by providing several funding models. Contact us for more details about the following options.
- Capital or Construction Budget designed to serve smaller buildings and venues for public safety and new construction.
- Operating Budget/Managed Services provided as a utility with a longer-term contract with flexible ownership options for larger enterprises.
- Wireless Operator Funded, which includes minimal capital contribution from the enterprise or venue.
Engineering & Design
Our in-house RF designers and engineers are some of the most experienced in the field, with every one of them holding standard industry and manufacturer certifications. Their scope includes completing an extensive site survey and wireless network assessment, then designing carrier-grade wireless systems customized to client requirements. After the solution has been installed, our engineers commission the system, handling all phases of work to get the system tested, working at peak performance and on air. Serving as a single point of contact to own and manage the entire design, build and commissioning process, eliminates, or greatly reduces confusion, questions and cost overruns that often arise when solutions are developed across various silos of ownership.
Monitoring & Maintenance
When we implement a new system, McKinstry ensures all carrier-licensed frequencies are transmitted without interference and all public safety channels are filtered and interoperable. Once the system is on air, we provide ongoing 24/7/365 monitoring and maintenance services for your system.
Technical Consulting & Professional Services
We collaborate with clients early in the process to evaluate and develop a detailed roadmap around future connectivity vison, needs, and budgetary goals. We then develop the best wireless connectivity strategy based on defined goals, and actual data collected around current coverage and capacity levels.
Our project managers have years of industry experience and technical knowhow and provide a single point of accountability throughout the deployment of the solution, working closely with cellular carriers and public safety agencies to ensure that systems are fine-tuned to all third-party specifications.
McKinstry has developed a turnkey and flexible Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) model for the deployment and management of in-building wireless networks (i.e. DAS, small cells, etc.). The CaaS model combines McKinstry’s best-in-class technology and project management with a tailored acquisition solution to meet our client’s specific budgetary and business needs.
Installation & Operation
Whether it is a multi-carrier distributed antenna system (DAS), a public safety system, wired infrastructure or other fiber connectivity system, McKinstry’s wireless experts manage all aspects of building and installing a wireless system that is best suited to achieve your vision. We manage complex network designs to ensure your project is delivered on time and on budget while meeting your organization’s performance and security requirements.
