About /About
The Amplified Solutions team members were among the early industry pioneers involved in shaping the multi-carrier concept and business model that is commonly discussed at Telecom conventions.
Our  team has strong industry experience in the negotiation, design, build and integration of distributed antenna systems with a collective 114 years experience in the telecommunication business. The founder. Rob Todd, has chaired numerous  regulatory bodies  including those with jurisdiction over the wireless industry, negotiated hundreds of contracts, and has managed dozens of projects with hospitals, professional sports stadiums, outdoor venues, convention centers, hotels and more. Many of  our team are former employees of major wireless carriers and are particularly familiar with the unique regional  engineering specifications and requirements of each wireless carrier.  We are regularly retained by both wireless telecommunication providers and venue owners depending on who is financing the system. We are on the approved list for all four major carriers. We are experienced  in the deployment of public and public-service Distributed Antenna Systems, macro sites, rooftop antennas and small cell sites. We are also available to provide consulting services. Each one of those solutions makes sense depending on the type of building, cost, location of building, and use of building.  For a full description of our scope of services, please click on our scope of services tab. Whether you are a carrier or a property owner, by utilizing us, you will have a turn-key team that can handle any aspect of a telecommunications project. We maintain excellent relations with all wireless carriers so all sides are served to their satisfaction. We are honored that Amplified Solutions has been named one of the  Top 100 fastest growing companies in Houston for 3 years straight.
