Providing better cell service inside buildings is often a challenge. Typically, the solution requires investment in cellular distributed antenna systems (DAS) or cellular repeaters and the like. If you have a Wi-Fi infrastructure, carrier offloading provides a solution that enables the cellular customers of our partners to use your Wi-Fi for voice and data service on their phone. Not only does this solution provide better cellular service to your property, but Carrier Offloading also provides a source of revenue. We’ve partnered with cellular carriers representing over 35% of the cellular customers in the United States and are in the process of adding more.
Carrier Offloading transitions the medium of cellular calls from cellular antennas onto Wi-Fi networks
The transition enables Carriers to reduce infrastructure cost and leverage existing Wi-Fi networks
Carriers are willing to pay for the use of existing Wi-Fi network infrastructure to avoid the high cost of DAS
Wi-Fi also supports much higher bandwidth capability than most 4G cellular networks and can sometimes compete with 5G cellular networks as well
Owner / Operators Wi-Fi networks become an extension of the Carriers networks
Revenues are passed through to Owner / Operator as a % Rent
GPG manages relationship with the Carriers on behalf of the Owner / Operators
GPG works alongside Owner / Operator to configure their Wi-Fi to support Carrier Offloading
GPG operates and maintains the integration between Owner / Operator and Carriers
GPG handles carrier billing, revenue reconciliation, and authentication
We find that many building automation vendors have limited ability to address the necessary business management and decision-making processes that ensure optimal cost savings. GPG can assist its clients with measuring, analyzing and acting on the collected data in order to achieve the projected cost savings. The focus of GPG Managed Services is to address department strategy; organizational structure; operations and procedures; and use of technology to steer the cost savings effort.
Having a consistent network and Wi-Fi system is essential to your tenants’ operations. The best type of infrastructure is the type that “just works.” The focus of our network management service is to ensure our client's networks are fully and optimally operational. In addition to monitoring, GPG also coordinates component replacement, upgrades, and modifications. While many see the network as an operational cost, we help our clients find new ways to monetize their infrastructure to generate new revenue streams.
It is essential to have a dedicated and knowledgeable team that is able to focus on the following key elements:
Performance of the system
Coordination with third party vendors
Coordination with internal departments such as marketing, leasing, and others
Since our project team is familiar with these components of a project, we ensure the goals and objectives are achieved. In the program management role, we:
Recommend and coordinate system improvements
Coordinate with third party vendors and internal departments
Interact with system users as necessary
Handle meter updates, BAS upgrades, and other system component changes
