Verizon Deploys Small Cells at Naval Bases
Friday, May 24, 2019 | Comments

Verizon and Naval Base Coronado announced the installation of a new wireless small cell deployment at Naval Air Station North Island, Naval Amphibious Base Coronado and San Clemente Island.

This mission-critical communications partnership expands the capabilities for tactical and public-safety operations and improves connectivity for on-base tenant commands and residents.

“This is a great step in the evolution of mission-critical communications on base,” said Captain Timothy Slentz, commanding officer, Naval Air Station North Island. “Through this partnership, we are building a more responsive, agile and secure network that will help meet our communications needs, even as technology continues to advance.”

The Verizon design provides a dedicated cellular network for day-to-day operations, as well as emergencies. Naval Base Coronado is one of the first naval installations in the region to lay the groundwork for Verizon 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) small-cell wireless technology, which will help enable future 5G technologies for smart shore initiatives.

“With decades of experience working with military and federal agencies, Verizon is uniquely positioned to partner with the Navy to build a network infrastructure,” said Mike Maiorana, senior vice president, public sector, Verizon. “This investment further solidifies Verizon’s commitment to the mission of needs of the Navy.”
