Spartanburg, SC - AFL, an industry leader in wireless integration and engineering, announces they were selected by Inova Multimedia to support a turnkey Wi-Fi network installation in the New Jersey/New York area.

As an end-to-end systems integrator, planning and implementing the technology solutions for municipal and mass transit projects fits directly into AFL’s sweet spot.
