MD7 Initiates Landlord Management for Vodafone Germany

San Diego, CA – August 21, 2018. Md7 announces that it has initiated landlord management services for Vodafone Germany.  

Md7 has established a landlord hotline and call center in Düsseldorf to manage the relationships with over thirty-thousand cell site and radio base station landlords across Germany for Vodafone. In addition, Md7 provides additional support from its European HQ in Dublin. Md7 uses its industry-specific system, LiveTrack, to create cases and manage a variety of landlord-related issues.

A centralized operation, combined with visibility and transparency into sites and projects, advances the management efficiency and strategic oversight of the mobile network real estate assets, as well as providing improved interaction for the different functional groups and outside vendors.

This is the second landlord management operation established by Md7. In 2016 Md7 began providing landlord management services for Vodafone in the Netherlands from its office in Maastricht.  

“While often overshadowed by advancements in wireless networks and handsets, the underlying cell site lease between each Mobile Network Operator (MNO) and its thousands of landlords is a critical component of every wireless network” said Michael Gianni, Md7 Chairman and CEO.  “Md7 is pleased to assist the MNOs in transforming a traditional cost-center into a proactively managed and optimized real estate portfolio.”

Giving Back

By Amy Bard, Md7 Counsel

Md7 works on organizing projects year round that exemplify our core value of Giving Back. This holiday season, the Giving Back Committee at Md7 partnered with the Hope Leadership Foundation in their Toys for Hope Toy Drive to collect toys for less-fortunate children in San Diego, California.

The Hope Leadership Foundation provided us with paper “ornaments” listing the age and gender of a child which we used to decorate the holiday tree in our foyer. Employees selected an ornament or ornaments of their choice and returned with unwrapped toys to place under the tree.

I personally found it immensely rewarding to watch, day by day, as more and more “ornaments” disappeared off the tree to be magically replaced by a wonderful variety of toys.

We initially set and successfully achieved our goal of collecting a total of 100 toys. Some toy highlights include some adorable stuffed animals, dolls, razor scooters, a variety of sports equipment, skateboards, RC cars and board games. These toys will be distributed locally at the King Chavez Academy of Excellence on December 17, 2016.

While it is easy to forget how fortunate we are, events like this Toy Drive help remind us how many children in our local community, due to circumstances completely out of their control, may be without a present this holiday season. It is truly wonderful to see the Md7 community come together and collectively help make sure 100 deserving children will get a new toy.

Md7 Sponsors Opening Reception for Wireless West 2017

Md7 invites you to join us in San Diego, California on April 19, 2017, as we sponsor the opening night networking social of the Wireless West Conference.

Md7 is excited to support the efforts of this amazing conference, which in its inaugural debut last year brought together over 500 wireless professionals from all corners of the industry to share ideas on cutting edge industry issues, particularly those faced in the West Coast and Rocky Mountain regions. The standing room only education sessions were a strong testament to the exceptional topics and speakers presented. We are certain the 2017 conference will be no less impressive.

The Wireless West Conference was created by five west coast wireless associations — the California Wireless Association, Northwest Wireless Association, Arizona Wireless Association, Nevada Wireless Association, and Colorado Wireless Association.

The two-day conference will take place April 19-20, 2017 at the newly renovated Marriott Marquis & Marina. See you there!


Giving Back to School Backpack Drive

By Vanessa Jimenez-Browne, Land Use

At Md7, we strive to incorporate our core values into our daily work product and overall attitude.

When Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around we are keenly reminded to donate our time and money to those less fortunate. During past holidays, we have held competitive food drives, adopted families, and volunteered at various non-profits in the area. But what about the time in between? Times of need may swell around the holidays, but there are certainly communities and individuals that could use a helping hand every other day of the year. Md7 has created a Giving Back outreach committee to spearhead philanthropic efforts to last throughout the entire year.

As a member of the Giving Back outreach committee, it’s been a pleasure learning about the altruistic pursuits that each person harbors. Whether it be caring for homeless, youth, Veterans—to name a few—everyone seemed to have their passion project that drives them to give back to their community. One thing that we knew for certain, we didn’t want to just hand money to big organizations, we were looking to foster partnerships and relationships with local not-for-profits that we could more closely work with throughout the years.

For our Summer 2016 endeavor, we have chosen to participate in SAY San Diego’s Back-to-School Backpack drive. We have received 100 backpacks that need to be filled with a set list of school supplies. Md7 has held a back-to-school backpack drive in the past and it was met with great warmth and success. Not only has this project succeeded in getting Md7 employees involved, it has also presented a wonderful opportunity for their family members to take the initiative and become accountable in putting together a backpack of their own to give to someone in need. We chose SAY San Diego because it is a local organization that emphasizes addressing more than a single need or problem by providing solutions and support for youth and their families in matters relating to low-income needs, mental health, education, etc. We currently have 17 backpacks complete and are on target to complete our goal of 100 total packs by August 5th. We are encouraged by the great success with this project and are already discussing our next ventures and a larger end-of-the-year event!
