Verizon Continues to Upgrade Daytona’s Best Network

Verizon Continues to Upgrade Daytona's Best Network

Verizon has recently made major upgrades to the network serving customers in Daytona, FL. These upgrades are part of a multi-year redesign of its network architecture to stay ahead of exponential data usage increases, upgrade the technology in the network, and to pave the way for personalized customer experiences. Network upgrades in Daytona include deploying new cell sites to extend coverage and capacity in local communities. They also include adding more capacity on fiber optic cables to move more data through the network and adding bandwidth to the cellular network to accommodate new services like wireless internet service for homes and businesses. Specifics on the upgrades include:

  • Engineers have deployed 5G Ultra Wideband service using C-band spectrum designed for fast speeds, high capacity and wide coverage.With the recent deployments and upgrades, more people in Daytona now have access to 5G service from Verizon. Most notably, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service has recently expanded to areas near Daytona International SpeedwayTanger Outlets, the SeaBreeze Historic District, the mainland area, the Ortona Park area, South Peninsula Historic District and the Amazon Delivery Station near I-95.
  • These deployments used Verizon’s recently acquired C-band spectrum, designed to provide wide coverage for 5G service.Throughout Daytona, Verizon engineers are using 100 MHz of C-band spectrum to deliver 5G service to customers.By the end of the year, customers in Daytona will be able to take advantage of even more spectrum as it becomes available for 5G Ultra Wideband. That additional bandwidth will turbo charge the service, offering significantly higher speeds, much greater capacity to accommodate more customers and more robust services
  • Lastly, the addition of 5G service and the many additional wireless solutions allow far more data to travel on the wireless network in Daytona.That exponential increase in data carried into and out of the cell sites serving the community requires upgraded fiber optic cable links.Fiber optic cables are used to move data between cell sites and connect those sites to the rest of the network.Verizon has increased the capacity on the fiber connections in many cell sites in the Daytona area so they can carry 10 times the amount of data.

“Our network engineers work tirelessly to ensure we can provide the most reliable connections across Daytona. We will continue to unlock the power of 5G for our customers with better connectivity for their phones, homes and businesses, as part of our ongoing commitment to this community,” said Eric LiaVice President of Network Engineering and Operations for Verizon.

With these and other technology advancements on Verizon’s network, customers are able to use more data in more ways.This multi-service network powers

  • Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices that do very little networking and stay in place,
  • smartphones with infinite opportunities to use data in a highly mobile environment,
  • home and business internet which provides connectivity via the wireless network for homes, offices and retail environments, and
  • complex solutions like Augmented Reality or enterprise real-time video and data analysis that require massive computing capabilities.

As 5G technology advances and is even more widely adopted by consumers the variety of solutions that will use Verizon’s network will continue to evolve as well.
