Cell Phone Coverage Case Studies

 

Case Study #1:
Walls Industries, Inc. – Cleburne, TX

BUILDING TYPE
A historic manufacturing and distribution facility housing the headquarters of a designer and supplier of outdoor apparel.

CHALLENGES
Employees require cell phones to do their jobs. The old concrete, brick, and steel construction killed what little signal was available from the nearest cell tower, over 7 miles away. The company’s existing in-building wireless system was interfering with the roll-out of AT&T’s local 3G network in the region.

SOLUTION
A passive, repeater-based system that caught off-air signal and amplified it, providing coverage for the 34,150-square-foot facility.

PAYBACK IMPACT
Because the company’s existing system interfered with AT&T’s 3G network, Walls Industries needed to shut down their system or face fines from the FCC of up to $20,000 per day. A solution was installed over a two-week turnaround, with limited disruption to business.
