Campus Case Studies
University campuses are large sprawling areas which consist of a number of very different buildings and a variety of people, all with different communication requirements. Lecturers in the lecture halls, staff in shops and restaurants, students in accommodation, people in car parks, bars and sports facilities: all of these people and buildings require reliable voice and internet connectivity for the day to day smooth running of the university, ensuring that students are within a safe, connected environment.
In order to maintain their reputable name as a leading edge education facility, universities must have excellent voice and fast data services.
How to ensure excellent voice and data communications on a campus?
Ensure that every visitor to the campus can access mobile signal.
A university campus holds many different groups of people who all need good signal, including lecturers, administration staff, restaurant workers, students and visitors. In the modern world it is not acceptable for people to have to use WIFI, with cumbersome passwords and unreliable, slow speeds. By far the easiest solution is to enable all of these people to use their own mobile phone, allowing voice and high-speed 5G data to everyone.
Stella repeaters amplify all of the operators’ signals in Europe, the UK, Middle East and Asia. Stella repeaters amplify voice signal, as well as 5G, 4G and 3G data, allowing access to high-speed internet for everyone, without the need to manage WIFI passwords.
Choose a solution that ensures signal in all buildings for safety purposes
There are many different types of buildings on a campus and most are built from modern materials, including thick concrete walls and triple glazed windows. These materials prevent the signal from the mobile operators from entering the building. Even though most campuses are located near the centre of large cities and have excellent mobile coverage outside, inside the buildings there is often no signal. It is important for health and safety, as well as user experience, that students and staff feel safe and connected in the buildings at all times of the day and night, whether it is in underground car parks or locker rooms. Stella repeaters capture signal from all operators outside the building and distribute this signal to all areas inside the premises via multiple antennas. It is a modular system that can accommodate any size and any number of different facilities.
Ensure the system allows access to mobile signal for payments, both via mobile phone and visa terminals
The campus hosts many buildings including shops, restaurants, car parks and bars. It is essential that staff in all of these facilities can take payments speedily and efficiently, allowing customers to tap their phones to use Apple Pay and Google Pay and also accepting payment using mobile VISA terminals.
Stella repeaters amplify the mobile signal in all areas and ensure that every device that uses the mobile operator’s signal works seamlessly. The Stella Repeater System supports unlimited numbers of people, and data speeds will not lag at peak times, ensuring speedy payment receipts.
Choose a system that allows you to protect the campus from cyber attacks.
Institutions are increasingly under threat from cyber attack. From healthcare to government to universities, it is important that a campus provides access to mobile signal without compromising security. Stella repeaters amplify voice, 5G, 4G and 3G signal, allowing everyone to work off their own mobile phone data plan without the need for management of usernames and passwords. The security, when using the mobile operators network, is far superior to anything that a local WiFi provider can offer.
Choose a cost effective and future proofed option.
A large campus requires a low management, low maintenance system that enables reliable mobile signal without high maintenance and management costs. Allowing staff and students to work off their own data plan hugely increases efficiency by allowing time saving apps to function. It is essential that the chosen system is future proofed as data usage by staff and students increases over time. The Stella iRepeaters amplify the 5G signal from the mobile operators, and network providers offer speeds of up to 200Mb with average data packages. The operators continuously improve their network and their data speeds are increased dramatically year after year. The Stella iRepeater amplifies the signal from the operators, and by installing a Stella iRepeater, the system allows the latest technology from the mobile operators to function enabling super high data speeds to each user. This makes the Stella iRepeater System by far the most professional and future proofed system available.
