Wireless in the Sears Tower
Posted on 21-Jan-2004 07:36 | Filed under: News

MetLife has announced that an agreement has been reached with InnerWireless, Inc., giving the in-building wireless systems and services company the right to market the Sears Tower system to wireless service providers. As agreements are reached with the wireless carriers, InnerWireless will install a neutral host system throughout the 110-story building.

"You don't have to be very high in a skyscraper to experience problems with wireless reception. It's a common complaint from employees in many downtown buildings," said Stephen Budorick, senior vice president of the central region for Trizec Properties, which manages the Sears Tower. "This solution would allow people in Sears Tower to make a call from their office, get on the elevator to go downstairs and walk out the front door of the building, without ever losing the call."

The InnerMobile system from InnerWireless simultaneously supports cellular and PCS voice and data; paging; 2-way radio for applications like building maintenance, operations and security; wireless LAN for high-speed data; as well as fire, life and safety communications that are vital to all first-responder emergency services.

"We are extremely pleased that the Sears Tower owners selected InnerWireless as their in-building wireless system provider," said Ed Cantwell, InnerWireless president and CEO. "We look forward to working very closely with MetLife and Trizec Properties to market Chicago's iconic landmark property to wireless carriers, as tenant composition is an important factor in in-building coverage decision processes."
