COMPLETES FIRST PATENT-PENDING COMPUTE-TO-THE-EDGE NETWORK INSTALLATION
NAPLES, FL — (Marketwired) — 11/08/17 — FTE Networks, Inc. (OTCQX: FTNW) and (OTCQX: FTNWD) (“FTE” or the “Company”), a leading provider of innovative technology-oriented solutions for smart platforms, network infrastructure and buildings, today announced that CrossLayer™, a wholly owned subsidiary of FTE, completed its first installation of its patent-pending Compute-to-The-Edge Network technology in its Naples, Florida headquarters.
The Naples, Florida service center is installed with the capacity to serve the mixed-use retail and commercial facility. The installation will serve as a showcase for CrossLayer’s new technology as it is adopted in the market. The new integrated network and cloud platform uses a combination of patent pending technology and an open source operating model.
CrossLayer™ provides key benefits to commercial real estate developers and their respective tenants. The technology platform provides REITs and developers with infrastructure for Smart Building conversion that allows them to automate building management systems, like HVAC and utilities, and support Internet devices. Further, it provides for the ability to enable building owners to experience and provide telecom carrier-like functionality with ultra-fast, highly secure data network with unlimited connections that they can own. CrossLayer™ will manage the network from sign-up to service.
“We are excited to demonstrate the capacity of our patent-pending CrossLayer™ technology showcased in our corporate headquarters. Our team has designed a network that brings unprecedented speed and efficiency to wireless networks, while offering significant savings. Our team is currently in the process of installing a second CrossLayer™ network which we expect to unveil in the fourth quarter 2017,” said Michael Palleschi, President and CEO of FTE Networks.
Mr. Palleschi further states, “We believe that FTE Networks as a consolidated company has a distinct competitive advantage, as the Company operates three synergistic entities that have multiple lines of business that complement one another. These include the FTE Network Services which provides telecom and technology infrastructure services, CrossLayer, which provides managed network services and technology solutions, and Benchmark Builders, which offers general contracting services.”
