Tempest Telecom Solutions Acquires Coastcom and Bayly Assets

Tempest (News - Alert) Telecom Solutions, LLC, a supplier of infrastructure and related services to carriers and network operators, has acquired significant assets and intellectual property related to Coastcom (News - Alert) and Bayly networking products from the Receivers of Bayly Communications Inc.

Bayly Communications Inc. and Bayly Networks Inc. closed their doors on August 2, 2011. This left hundreds of critical networks without support, supply or repair facilities for the Coastcom DI Mux III, acquired by Bayly in 2008, and other Bayly products such as the OMNIPlex and OMNIFlex products.

On account of this acquisition, Tempest now owns all rights to the Coastcom and Bayly product lines and has also retained the services of key personnel from the defunct company to facilitate a smooth transition.

"We are pleased to be able to step up and help all of Coastcom and Bayly’s installed base customers by offering operations and repair at our state of the art Repair facilities,” said Jessica Firestone, chief executive officer at Tempest, in a statement.

Firestone said that Coastcom and Bayly customers can now be rest assured that they will have access to first rate services and repair.

“Any customer in immediate need of help should contact us right away,” she said.

Back in July, Tempest Telecom (News - Alert) had announced acquisition of Leaf Communication Services, a Western Regional DAS and In-building wireless, design, implementation and maintenance company, further diversifying Tempest's broad capabilities in the 2G, 3G and 4G network services market. 

Carriers are focusing their resources on increased network capacity and coverage to satisfy the overwhelming demand that mobile data and smart devices are placing on their networks.  Much of this demand occurs indoors: in office buildings, schools, stadiums, hospitals, and other large enterprise campus environments across the country. 

This trend is driving the need for more distributed base station solutions and the deployment of more Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) to increase the signal strength inside these complex facilities.  DAS solutions are widely considered the most efficient and effective method to boost in-building signals that provide quicker data transmission rates and increased network capacity overall.
