ADDISON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/17 -- ERF WIRELESS, INC. (OTC PINK: ERFB) and Accordant Communications, LLC. ("Accordant"), (www.acc-com.com) today announced that ERF Wireless ("ERF") is expanding and has now established local subsidiary offices in Addison, Texas to further support the Texas market and its partner base after its recent acquisition of all the equity Interests of Accordant, a Leading Broadband Network Development and Utility Construction company. Accordant currently has a number of network deployments in Texas. Accordant expects to add up to 50 new jobs in the Texas market over the next 24 months and another 100 jobs in the Florida market strengthening ERF's ability to execute on its plans of becoming a leading mission critical infrastructure provider to both the communications and power industries. A local presence within these markets will not only allow the company to support current installations but also provide a local sales and support base for future expansion within these markets through the recruitment of new partners.
Dan Himes, Accordant's President, stated: "The telecom world is evolving rapidly and the networks we will use to communicate in a few years will bear little resemblance to the ones we use today. The new 5G wireless platform will need a tremendous amount of small cells to be deployed and this will require a large amount of fiber optic cable and latest generation microwave to support them. The Accordant Executive Team has extensive experience with all of this technology. Texas is an obvious market for Accordant to enter given its appetite for technology growth and innovation. Texas is a logical step and has already presented ERF with numerous untapped opportunities for our products, services and complete solutions. Accordant provides wireless carriers with the infrastructure they need to keep people connected and businesses running. Accordant is currently supporting and providing services in Houston and Dallas to several of the nation's largest providers of small cells in the U.S. The addition of Accordant's complementary footprint in top metro markets in South Florida and Texas bolsters ERF's fiber provider services while enhancing its position in small cells and ERF's overall long-term growth."
ERF Wireless (www.erfwireless.com) was founded in 2004 as a "Critical Communications Infrastructure" company applying advanced wireless broadband technology and other communications technology to a select suite of enterprise, commercial and retail critical communications needs. ERF has historically offered high-speed wireless broadband products and services to specialized critical communications needs, such as banking, healthcare, education and oil and gas.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
