Government and the Public Sector
State, County and City Government
In most mid to large sized cities, commercial wireless network capacity is being exhausted at an unprecedented rate. Higher densities of subscribers within the urban core, combined with the increase in data consumption and the increasing amount of time the average subscriber spends on their mobile devices, have created the demand for access to government owned assets and infrastructure.
Smaller cities and under-served, rural areas that still lack essential wireless, broadband and telecommunications services or competition can also benefit through an active and effective marketing, promotion and asset management program designed to attract wireless carriers and broadband services providers.
Asset Listing, Marketing and Management Programs for Government
Neo Networks offers several asset and inventory management programs customized specifically for government and public sector agencies ranging from the listing of government assets in our online, network real estate multiple listing service that can attract carriers interested in leasing or licensing access, to our Open Access program for those that prefer to self perform the marketing, promotion and management of their assets, to our comprehensive Vertical Infrastructure Portfolio branded as NeoNet VIP infrastructure and asset management program.
Listing assets in NeoNetWerx provides the infrastructure owner with a low cost way to attract wireless, broadband and telecommunications carriers and includes photos, location information, engineering data, embedded business terms and contact information that connects owners with prospective tenants directly and virtually.
Neo's proprietary Open Access program includes access to NeoNetWerx and all of the agreement templates, processes, best practices-based ordinance and siting procedures, technical, operational and legal subject matter expertise and ongoing support services and training under a simple and customized licensing arrangement.
NeoNet VIP offers all of the benefits and advantages of the listing service and the Open Access program and also includes the active and direct marketing, promotion and management of the assets and inventory and is cost free, 100% success-based and administered under a revenue sharing arrangement.
Small Cell Technology Makes Your Community's Assets Valuable
Since the early days of cellular, government agencies have only been able to capitalize on a small fraction of the recurring revenue opportunity that originates from hosting wireless, telecommunications and broadband networks.
Small cell technology, including distributed antenna systems ("DAS") networks, distributed remote radios, microcells, metro cells, femto cells and pico cells are a fraction of the size of a traditional cell site, operate at very low power and their antennas, operating at lower elevations, cover far fewer subscribers. With each microcell covering a smaller number of subscribers, wireless carriers are able to reuse their available bandwidth and recover capacity providing a much faster, more reliable and better quality of service.
Over the next decade and beyond, wireless carriers and their network development partners will be deploying small cells on all types of elevated infrastructure including utility poles, street lights, traffic signal poles, building corners and low elevation rooftops and on new poles placed within the rights of way.
Economic Development Advantages
Embracing the wireless and broadband carriers creates significant economic development benefits that accompany the technology. Not only can they minimize the proliferation of traditional cell towers, but the effective marketing, promotion, leasing and licensing of the existing inventory of vertical assets and infrastructure can create a new form of organic revenue for the community or government agency that owns these assets.
Beyond the direct revenue benefit, the community benefits include the creation of new jobs, including professional services, skilled trades and labor--which also drives construction and new housing starts that improve the local tax base. The availability of advanced technology also attracts new business as well as stimulated growth within the local economy.
Wireless and Broadband Technology Provides Incalculable Life, Health and Human Safety Benefits
Law enforcement, fire, rescue and emergency medical services all rely on mobile voice and data communications over wireless networks. Personal, wearable devices also relay critical information to first responders over wireless networks and literally protect and preserve human life from criminal violence, auto accidents, environmental damage and healthcare emergencies.
Since nearly all government agencies lack budget, personnel and resources to effectively inventory, promote and market their assets and infrastructure within the carrier ecosystem, the majority have met with only limited success.
With the increasing market demand for access to government owned buildings, street lamps, traffic signal poles and more and more carriers filing applications to place new poles, fiber and conduit systems within the public and utility rights of way, many government agencies are already being overwhelmed with requests for access.
The challenge of managing and controlling access is further complicated when combined with a complex and rapidly changing regulatory environment with the new federal orders and state laws favoring the carriers.
Now more than ever, government agencies are realizing the importance of adopting and implementing an efficient, effective and legally compliant infrastructure and asset management program in conjunction with modifications to their current wireless master plans, including siting practices, policies and programs.
Neo Networks is the first company in the US to offer comprehensive infrastructure and asset management solutions as a means of providing a high value service to government that simultaneously benefits wireless carriers, telecommunications and broadband service providers by enabling low cost, high volume, high velocity deployment solutions.
