/PRNewswire/ — FRISCO, Texas, Aug. 30, 2022 — ExteNet Systems, the largest privately held provider of LTE/5G wireless and fibre neutral host communications infrastructure solutions, is relocating its headquarters from Lisle, Illinois to Frisco, Texas. The move is part of a longer-term commercial plan to position ExteNet at the heart of the industry’s ecosystem, where it will stimulate additional innovation and rekindle corporate awareness of the brand and business. The relocation is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2023.
The Governor of Texas and the Mayor of Frisco both welcomed ExteNet to Texas and celebrated its addition to the state’s thriving telecom landscape.
Frisco Station, an internationally acclaimed, award-winning 242-acre mixed-use development in one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States, will house the new 37,000-square-foot headquarters. The new site is closer to significant clients and industry partners, as well as the company’s biggest share of owned and managed networks.
ExteNet just announced two significant agreements in Texas. The firm will bring spectacular fan experiences with high performance private wireless network solutions to the AT&T Center in San Antonio, home of the San Antonio Spurs, through an exclusive agreement with Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E). ExteNet also announced a partnership with Circuit of The Americas (COTA) to install fibre at the 1,500-acre world-class Formula One® racing circuit in Austin. ExteNet renovated the antennae at Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium last year to provide greater connectivity to event goers.
“Texas is a worldwide technological leader, and we are delighted to welcome ExteNet to Frisco,” Governor Greg Abbott stated. “The Lone Star State, as a beacon of innovation with a world-class business environment, is the ideal place for firms like ExteNet to thrive and realise their full potential. I look forward to working with ExteNet to keep Texas as the nation’s number one destination for technological innovation and as the finest state in which to live, work, and raise a family.”
ExteNet will continue to operate its five satellite offices in Burbank and San Ramon, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Lisle, Illinois; and Paramus, New Jersey, in addition to its new Texas headquarters. The Frisco office will house approximately 150 employees who will be responsible for deploying and managing infrastructure solutions from the ground up for sports, entertainment, and hospitality venues, as well as large enterprises, college campuses, healthcare facilities, and government municipalities across the United States.
“We want to restore the sense of community and build a better sense of belonging for our workforce,” says ExteNet President and CEO Richard Coyle. “This is a chance to reinvent our future, to move toward a more communicative and transparent culture that aspires for collective success. Frisco provides excellent work-life balance and brings us closer to many of our most important partners and clients.”
ExteNet is already making a difference in the Frisco region. The Star Zone, a fast-growing entertainment district featuring restaurants and shopping locations, as well as Ford Center, the Dallas Cowboys’ training facility, use the company’s Private Wireless Network services. The location has already been selected to host the Academy of Country Music Awards next year, and the new technology is likely to attract other world-class events and entertainment alternatives.
“I’m happy to welcome ExteNet Systems to our community and to Frisco Station on behalf of the Frisco City Council,” Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney stated. “ExteNet, a leader in secure 5G and fibre infrastructure solutions, is a welcome addition to Frisco’s thriving tech and innovation industry. And, with the development of 110 new employment in Frisco, our people will benefit from this expansion.”
