"We're seeing a trend in which operators are moving away from sub-contracting their network implementation services and opting instead for a direct service provider or 'self-perform' model," said Ricky Corker, executive vice president of North America for Nokia Networks. "SAC Wireless does this very well. With a national footprint and a proven track record of working with major telecom operators, SAC Wireless' capabilities complement our own in-house expertise. We believe this will enable us to build an even stronger foundation for our U.S. services business and address a market opportunity to bring increased end-to-end efficiency to our customers."
SAC Wireless' services include the SAC Wireless Engine Room, a process focused on managing site development, architectural and engineering, regulatory and compliance activities for national network programs. SAC Wireless also offers self-perform implementation of indoor and outdoor small cells and DAS, RF engineering and design, construction management and services, as well as turnkey program management of large scale network deployments.
