Improving the Collegiate Experience with FORTE Small Cell Services
Demand for cellular coverage in campus housing is generated by both the residents and anxious parents concerned about the safety and accessibility of their children. Today’s typical college student is equipped with every type of wireless device imaginable. Smartphones, tablets, laptops and gaming devices are in virtually every backpack and students expect continuous connectivity from a combination of Wi-Fi and cellular networks. Campus housing complexes are usually built to last generations and make heavy use of steel, concrete and brick, all of which make it very difficult for a cellular signal from outdoor towers to penetrate the building walls. The result is poor cellular coverage in the very buildings where demand for quality service is greatest.
FORTE® is a cost-effective solution using small cells to either power a DAS or as a standalone system. For both DAS and standalone systems, you can choose any combination of AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint coverage. ClearSky will work with your local systems integrator on the installation, and then provide ongoing remote management to keep the cellular system operating at peak performance. Call us or contact us via email to learn how to give your students the voice and data coverage they demand and their parents the peace of mind they need.
