A key differentiation between FORTE® and any other product or service for in-building cellular coverage is the participation of AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. As outlined in Installation and Operations, ClearSky is the liaison between the property and the four operators. Acting as this intermediary, we perform the procedural steps required by each operator for planning and deployment as well as the 24 hour by 365 day management of the in-building radio sources.
On the day-to-day operations and management side of the solution, ClearSky’s relationships with the operators are the crucial link to enable the FORTE radio sources to offer cellular service inside the building. Using the FORTE technology, only a single standard Internet connection is needed into the property to service all four wireless operators. Through this Internet connection, ClearSky remotely manages the FORTE radio sources and enables them to stay connected to the core networks of the four wireless operators.
