Case Study: Akima

Akima is a global enterprise delivering agile solutions to governments and
has thousands of contracts in the federal, military, and civilian markets. These
contracts span across many fields and industries, including:

• Facilities, Maintenance & Repair
• Logistics & Supply Chain
• Systems Engineering
• Information Technology
• Protective Services
• Mission Support
• Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment
• Construction

As a holding company to a diverse portfolio of more than 40 operating companies,
Akima employs between 7,500 and 8,000 people. Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia,
they occupy four floors of their building with a large workspace of approximately
85,000 square feet.

Before moving into their new Virginia headquarters, Akima conducted an analysis
that revealed the mobile device coverage for cellphones, tablets, and laptops in the
new building was less than ideal. Akima identified the potential impact of dropped
calls, dead zones, the inability to place calls, and potentially no service at all. To
proactively address this problem, Akima turned to Communications Electronics (CE)
to implement a powerful, cost-effective in-building coverage solution.
