Telecommunication Properties, Inc. "TPI" wins Dallas Transit Authority Deal


WSJ WIRE –Thursday September 2, 2010


Dallas, TX, September 2, 2010—Telecommunications Properties Inc. (TPI), an industry leader in the operations and management of Distributed Antenna Systems “DAS” announced today that it had executed a contract with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Authority (DART). Jimmy Chiles, President of Telecommunication Properties, Inc. said “the multi-year contract includes design, installation and operations of a 700, 800 and 900 MHz Master Antenna System as well as collocation of DART’s network equipment inside TPI’s Dallas facility.

TPI was contacted by DART when they determined their existing EDACS communication network required replacement with a new 700/800/900 MHZ system. Vicki Clark, CFO for TPI stated “for more than 18 years DART has depended on TPI’s Master Antenna System and our mission critical facilities that include TPI’s ongoing site management solution for its critical communications needs.” Mr. Chiles added that “DART’s first-responder communications network is a vital public safety matter so our previous 18 years serving DART was the important factor in sealing the deal.”
A sub-set of master antenna solutions—called “Distributed Antenna Systems” (DAS) including “Site Management Technology” is in constant development by telecommunications vendors, however the management and operation of such projects requires more than conventional vendor contracting. Since 1985, Telecommunication Properties, Inc. “TPI” has performed countless similar installations including site management solutions for federal law enforcement agencies, broadcasters and telecommunication carriers. Mr. Chiles said “we have demonstrated that our on-staff and on-site capability won the DART contract and we are honored to accept the new responsibility.”

TPI will help sort out and select sub-contractors and oversee all related technology providers for the DART installation that will be located inside TPI’s Dallas facility. TPI manages infrastructural telecommunications sites in Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Houston, Denver and New York City.
