JMA Wireless is deploying a private LTE network using Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to improve the consumer experience in the American Dream complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, a 3 million-square-foot project with 450 shops catering 40 million visitors annually with retail, dining and entertainment.
In partnership with JMA, the American Dream will roll out CBRS deployments focusing on outdoor spaces for comprehensive traffic management, parking and wayfinding information systems. Using private and dedicated use spectrum, these guest experience systems operate independent of public use Wi-Fi and cellular networks. Additional uses will evolve for fixed and mobile devices including video cameras, digital displays, vehicle connectivity, internal use communications, and IoT for facility operations.
JMA partner, Advanced Network Services, is deploying JMA’s commercial carrier and private wireless technology for American Dream, providing guests and tenants with unrivaled connectivity inside and outside the complex. Both networks leverage a high-capacity, multi-service shared wireless infrastructure centered on JMA’s TEKO and NWAV distributed radio and antenna systems. The private network, used for facility operations and guest services, is one of the nation’s first FCC-authorized commercial deployments using the new CBRS shared spectrum at 3.5 GHz.
