JMA WIRELESS developed innovative network product at Bologna R&D lab

FEV12/07/2019 - US mobile connectivity company JMA Wireless unveiled its new 5G “in-building” network solution at its Italian R&D facility near Bologna, marking a milestone that paves the way for formal testing with mobile operators. This 5G millimeter-wave product is specifically designed to provide 5G connections in large buildings, companies and factory applications and was developed in cooperation between R&D centers located in Castel San Pietro Terme (Bologna, Italy) and Dallas (Texas).

“This is the first solution in the world that uses 5G millimeter waves for wireless connections inside highly-crowded buildings such as factories, stadiums, shopping centers and trade fairs” said Remo Ricci, CEO of JMA Teko, a unit of JMA. “This new technology will have a positive impact particularly in the manufacturing sector, for example in data transmission to robots, and will guarantee a clear and powerful 5G signal.”

JMA is one of the 35 innovative investment programs that have picked Emilia-Romagna taking advantage of funds made available by the Regional Government through the Law for the Promotion of the Investments (R.L. 14/2014). The Region has invested €74 million since 2016, helping to create over1,700 new jobs, reintegrating further 237 existing jobs. JMA Teko invested €22.4 million in its facility at Castel San Pietro Terme near Bologna, with a contribution from the Region of nearly €2.3 million.

It aims to build a 10,000-square meter factory nearby with a business unit dedicated to creating and selling cellular network products.
