Quell Corporation awarded work on first US Local Access Network Contract for Houston-Based Memorial Herman Hospital

Quell Corporation is a telecommunication engineering firm based in Houston that specializes in cellular network coverage systems for hospitals, governmental buildings, school systems and others. In September of 2008, Quell Corporation selected Telestone Technologies for their WFDS™ technologies as the component base for the Memorial Herman Hospital installation. Quell Corporation focuses on challenging installation sites where cellular connections are weak or overloaded in the outdoor environment and thus have a reduced signal strength in indoor settings.

"We are very familiar with coverage issues affecting a number of major U.S. telecom companies in the 3G/4G era and know how to incorporate all these signals onto one WFDS™ system," began David Ballard, President of Quell Corporation. In hospitals where cellular signals are interrupted by superstructures and reinforced walls the WFDS™ system was outstanding at supplying a signal that was adequate to cover all areas of the hospital. Relying on outdoor repeaters and boosters to improve signal strength was not a viable option; therefore an indoor fiber solution was used for the location. After extensive review and testing, we have been very impressed with the functionality of WFDS™. U.S. telecommunication companies also found value in WFDS™ and we are pleased to report that as a result of using a WFDS™ system, telecom companies have witnessed some of the most outstanding signal strengths that have been recorded in a public building environment. We feel that WFDS™ has a unique advantage in installations because of the multiple carrier with multiple frequency ranges (700, 800, 1900, and 2100) and we are actively pursuing other project opportunities for WFDS™."

The Houston-based Hospital project is valued at $2.0 million. Quell Corporation purchased WFDS™ components from Telestone Technologies and installed the system, according to Quell's engineering plans. After the initial success of Quell's Phase 1 instillation of the WFDS™ system, President David Ballard says the company is looking forward to continued success through pursuing installations in new structures including: schools, campuses, sports arenas, etc.
