For the Life of Your Building®

Proven from Design to Delivery and Beyond

We manage all aspects of planning, building and installing a wireless system that provides the necessary cellular coverage and capacity to securely share information from anywhere within a facility and its surrounding areas. Our in-house designers and engineers complete an extensive site survey and wireless network assessment, then design carrier-grade wireless systems customized to your requirements. After the solution has been installed, our engineers commission the system, handling all phases of work to get the system tested and working at peak performance.

Satisfying Public Safety Requirements

McKinstry’s team of wireless experts evaluate and advise on the necessary installation and design standards for providing first responder radio coverage, including public safety distributed antenna systems (DAS) and emergency radio responder systems (ERRS). We also evaluate current coverage and design and install systems guaranteed to meet code requirements and your deadline for occupancy.

Technology Agnostic to Put Your Needs First

Our wireless experts manage complex network designs to ensure your project is delivered on time and on budget while meeting your organization’s performance and security requirements. We can’t do that if we’re contractually tied to individual technology vendors. That’s why we remain vendor and technology agnostic, giving us the flexibility to leverage OEM and manufacturer relationships from across the industry to put your needs above all else.

24/7/365 Monitoring and Maintenance

When we implement a new system, McKinstry ensures all carrier-licensed frequencies are transmitted without interference and all public safety channels are filtered and interoperable. Once the system is on air, we provide ongoing 24/7/365 monitoring and maintenance services for your system.

Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS)

McKinstry has developed a turnkey and flexible Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) model to deploy and manage in-building wireless networks. The CaaS model combines our best-in-class technology and project management with a tailored acquisition solution to meet your specific budgetary and business needs.

Financing Solutions

McKinstry offers financial flexibility across several funding models:

  • Capital or construction budget designed to serve smaller buildings and venues for public safety and new construction
  • Operating budget or managed services provided as a utility with a longer-term contract with flexible ownership options for larger enterprises
  • Wireless operator funded, which includes minimal capital contribution from the enterprise or venue
