BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Frustrated students and staffers at Florida Atlantic University's Boca Raton campus will soon be a little less frustrated when trying to use iPhones on the AT&T network. AT&T is planning a major upgrade to its wireless systems that serve the FAU campus. The upgrade should be completed next year.
According to AT&T:
A DAS installation consists of multiple strategically-placed antennas that will distribute AT&T’s wireless network coverage throughout FAU. The result should be a better wireless experience in heavily-trafficked areas of the campus. A DAS has the ability to provide improved, more consistent wireless coverage to customers in indoor and outdoor spaces where geographical limitations, such as terrain, building construction, etc. or crowd density might otherwise prevent the optimal wireless experience.
The additional capacity that will be provided by the FAU DAS’ also is expected to help improve call reliability, boost data traffic capacity and provide for better network connectivity on the campus.
AT&T will complete the FAU DAS project in several phases. Phase one is expected to cover academic buildings, including the Innovation Village residence hall, S.E. Wimberly Library and the Student Union. Once completed, AT&T will open the DAS’ to other wireless companies, providing improved coverage to all students, faculty staff and visitors if their provider elects to join the DAS network.
