SYRACUSE, N.Y., November 16, 2021 – JMA Wireless (JMA), a leading American wireless technology company, today released the following statement applauding President Biden for signing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law:
“The signing of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs act marks an historic investment in our nation’s physical and digital infrastructure,” said JMA CEO John Mezzalingua. “I want to thank members of the New York congressional delegation, particularly Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Representative John Katko, for their hard work to pass this bill. In addition to the funds specifically designated to broadband, JMA applauds the inclusion of ‘buy American’ provisions, which will support American workers, including the at least 200 employees JMA will hire at its 5G factory in downtown Syracuse. Importantly, this is just the beginning of a broader expansion and investment in Syracuse that we expect to create even more jobs over time.
With the signing of this legislation, our country takes a major step forward in bridging the digital divide, fostering opportunity, and ushering in the next generation of wireless connectivity. JMA’s open-ran (O-RAN) and private wireless solutions will continue to play an important role in restoring U.S. leadership in the wireless industry at a critical juncture in the global transition to 5G, and we look forward to working with our partners in local, state, and federal government to deploy our state-of-the-art technology.”
A disruptive force in the wireless industry, JMA is restoring U.S. leadership in wireless technology at a critical time in the transition to 5G. Based in Syracuse, New York, JMA makes the world’s most advanced software-based 5G platform, which it designs, codes, and manufactures in the United States.
