HOUSTON, June 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbital Energy Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OEG) ("OEG") today announced that its telecommunications subsidiary, Gibson Technical Services ("GTS"), has been awarded a project by a major U.S. cellular carrier to install a distributed antennae system (DAS) in a large Atlantic Athletic Conference (ACC) university stadium. The project is scheduled to commence in the coming weeks and to be completed during the 2021 ACC football season.

Mike McCracken, GTS's CEO, commented, "Being awarded this project from a leading telecommunications services provider for a major university stadium recognizes GTS's ability to deliver high quality engineering and construction services. It also reflects how DAS projects are now coming back online, after being largely delayed due to the pandemic."

A DAS is a network of spatially separated antenna nodes connected to a common source via a transport medium that provides wireless service within a geographic area or structure. Thereby providing relief to the already overpopulated, traditional Macro Network, reducing bandwidth consumption. DAS antenna elevations are generally at or below the clutter level, and node installations are compact.

"GTS's proven capabilities in the highly profitable and active DAS installation market are a key reason why we acquired GTS," added Jim O'Neil, Orbital Energy Group's Vice-Chairman & CEO. "With the COVID-19 pandemic waning and such projects resuming, we believe GTS is well placed to win many of these DAS projects with its national reputation, skilled technicians and strong marketing capabilities."
