PORTLAND, Ore., Apr 02, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- XG Communities, a premier provider of wireless marketing plans and engineering services for cities and municipalities across the United States, has been awarded an exclusive wireless marketing agreement with the City of Portland.
After an extensive process, the City of Portland has partnered with XG Communities to enhance coverage and capacity in alignment with the City's goal of greater connectivity. The decision to partner with XG Communities was made based on the company's ability to retain local control, preserve aesthetic integrity and increase connectivity for businesses and residents. Additionally, addressing wireless inequality in the City of Portland is necessary to drive economic development.
As wireless networks transition from 4G to 5G technology, wireless carriers will look to deploy hundreds of thousands of small cells nationwide. This exponential increase in the volume wireless facility applications will strain city resources. In collaboration with carriers, XG Communities will organize and streamline the application and deployment processes in order to serve the city and carriers.
"We are thrilled to partner with the City of Portland on this important initiative. Now more than ever, wireless infrastructure will be the underpinning of economic development and citizen satisfaction," said Monnie McGaffigan, President of XG Communities. "Connectivity is the backbone of a productive economy and a connected community. We are honored to assist Portland in this endeavor."
