Fibre optic infrastructure provider AFL has acquired service and solutions vendor Forza Telecom. 

The acquisition is designed to further expand AFL’s solutions portfolio with specialised indoor and outdoor distributed antenna systems (DAS) capabilities.

Founded in 2010, Forza Telecom provides DAS installations to some of the largest sports venues in North America. Over the years, the firm has developed a track record in delivering customised solutions with experience in targeted geographies.

AFL provides end-to-end solutions to the energy, service provider, enterprise, hyperscale and industrial markets. The company’s products are in use in more than 130 countries and include fibre optic cable and hardware, transmission and substation accessories, outside plant equipment, connectivity, test and inspection equipment, fusion splicers and training.

Strengthening wireless network position

The acquisition will help to strengthen AFL's U.S. Services' existing position in wireless networking for U.S. sports venues in the West and Southwest while also expanding Forza Telecom's presence in the Southeast region. In addition, AFL enhances Forza Telecom's capabilities in complex RF design, large-scale installation, ongoing monitoring and maintenance services.

The entity will become part of the AFL U.S. Services’ Division under the leadership of Seneca Mullins, President of AFL's U.S. Services, who says: "With the addition of Forza Telecom to AFL's wireless service portfolio of Beam Wireless and Optical Telecom (OTS), AFL is elevating our position and enhancing our service offering in the DAS wireless market. Our combined expertise and capabilities will drive our ability to provide a more comprehensive, full-service solution that includes monitoring and maintenance and serves a wide range of customers."

In a joint statement, Steve Dutto, Forza President and Vince Gamick, Forza Telecom Chief Operating Officer, say: “DGP is delighted with the opportunities and strength that AFL will bring to our unique venue-owned DAS business model.”
