Case Study #2:
Babson College - Wellesley, MA
Various campus buildings, including academic facilities, dormitories, and a conference center.
Wellesley town regulations prohibit cell towers. With no wireless coverage, the conference center risked losing existing and future customers. Amidst multiple complaints, the college was concerned with recruiting and retaining students and faculty. Facilities and public safety services required reliable communications for operations and security.
A passive, repeater-based system that uses the off-air signal source and amplifies it to provide coverage throughout campus.
A phased approach based upon Babson College’s annual budgeting process rationalized the investment. Existing fiber was used for a large part of the system, allowing Babson to save on installation costs.
