Lisle, IL – August 27, 2014 – ExteNet Systems, Inc., a leader in providing distributed networks enabling advanced mobile connectivity for wireless carriers, venue owners, cities and communities, today announced it has named Edelman as its public relations agency of record.
The Edelman team, led out of the firm’s Chicago office, will handle ExteNet’s external communications spanning earned and owned media, along with content creation.
ExteNet designs, builds, owns and manages distributed networks in both outdoor and indoor settings. These distributed networks are designed to improve coverage and capacity of a wireless carrier’s network and deliver a superior mobile experience.
ExteNet’s outdoor distributed networks are deployed in urban and suburban markets including New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas and Boston. Indoor distributed networks are deployed in multiple verticals including Class A Real Estate, Healthcare, Sports & Entertainment and Hospitality.
“ExteNet has seen tremendous growth in the past few years as the demand for mobile broadband data and video has increased exponentially and legacy networks have demonstrated inherent limitations both for coverage and capacity,” said Andy Chavez, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at ExteNet Systems. “As we embark on our next phase of growth, we need a public relations partner to help educate and inform our customers about the innovative solutions we bring to network challenges. We selected Edelman as our partner based on its industry expertise and expansive reach.”
“The wireless industry continues to experience dynamic change,” said Chuck Kaiser, co-general manager of Corporate Affairs for Edelman Chicago, which includes the office’s Technology practice. “As the leader in distributed networks with a keen focus on driving relevance of connectivity with venue owners across key verticals, we see tremendous opportunity through our partnership with ExteNet Systems to inform their customers and we’re excited to help the company elevate its brand across the United States.”
