Neo Network Development (Neo Network), a company that provides comprehensive solutions to the access, coverage, capacity and network densification challenges faced by the major U.S. wireless carriers and broadband service providers, announces that TelecomTech Outlook, a Technology Magazine for Telecom, recognizes the company and its Open Access platform among the top 10 Small Cell and DAS Consulting/Service Companies 2020.
Neo Network’s Open Access platform is a public-private partnership and success-based revenue-sharing solution that allows public sector agencies to streamline application review processes while marketing active and available rights-of-way opportunities. The platform was specifically designed for public sector agencies, offering them access to a fully loaded and customized solution that helps expedite communications infrastructure applications that align with local, state and federal guidelines and regulations. This reduces the complexity of effectively managing the review and approval process.
The Open Access platform provides public sector agencies a streamlined process, offering:
- Best practices for small cell siting policy
- Engineering and construction standards
- A clearly defined application
- A planning and permitting process
- A unified rate and fee schedule
- All the agreement templates needed to administer pole attachments
- Information about cost-free access poles, streetlights, traffic signal poles, buildings, rooftops, water tanks, towers, signage and other vertical structures
- The ability to pinpoint right-of-way locations suitable for placement of new poles
“Our Open Access platform is equally valuable to public sector agencies as it is to the communications infrastructure companies such as wireless and network providers applying for rights-of-way in these jurisdictions,” comments Vince Aragona, CEO of Neo Network Development. “Our platform provides data for over 23,000 jurisdictions, allowing carriers to know which communities welcome their investments and where deployments meet existing and available rights-of-way or not. As a result, agencies can actively market and make their communities available to the carriers, offering a streamlined application and review process all while reducing the burden on administrators and taxpayers. It’s a win-win for technology deployments as well as communities that want to improve connectivity for their constituents.”
Agencies that use the Open Access platform are provided a thorough and effective application and review process that simplifies the process of approving communications infrastructure solutions. Through use of the platform, jurisdictions gain greater insights into the economic development benefits and community value of advanced technology while benefiting from the ability to identify new revenue opportunities that may otherwise be overlooked or undervalued.
In addition to the platform, Neo Network productizes access at the portfolio level, delivering and marketing these assets and their associated business terms to all interested service providers and operators. As sites are selected and reserved, Neo Network facilitates the leasing, zoning, planning and permitting process and manages the asset base throughout the lease term. Neo Network even offers optional turnkey deployment services, build-to-suit fiber connectivity and carrier project financing.
