Mobilitie 5G network will support up to 20,000 users
U.S. company Mobilitie, a privately-held wireless infrastructure provider, announced that it will be bringing next-generation mobile connectivity to the students, staff and visitors of Nova Southeastern University (NSU) in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
NSU selected the firm to create a campus-wide 5G wireless infrastructure for its 20,000-plus students.
The 314-acre campus hosts a student body pursuing undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees in a wide variety of fields including law, health care, education and social sciences, among others. Under the terms of the project, Mobilitie will design, deploy and operate a neutral-host wireless network infrastructure capable of delivering on the needs of the school today. The network will feature a modular design which will also act as a foundation for future generations of wireless coverage, the company said.
NSU highlighted that it had selected Mobilitie based on its experience deploying in the most complex environments, both indoor and outdoor. The company has implemented massive small cell deployments in the U.S.’s biggest cities as well as custom-built distributed antenna systems (DAS) in major sports stadiums.
“We look forward to delivering robust, reliable and incredibly effective wireless access for the patrons of NSU. This is a uniquely forward-looking University and we are excited to be their partner for such a foundational element of the student experience,” said William Richmond, AVP of Wireless Solutions at Mobilitie.
Wireless infrastructure includes communication towers, indoor and outdoor neutral host DAS networks, small cells, IoT, and Wi-Fi networks. Mobilitie’s solutions are used at venues across all major industries-including sports and entertainment, real estate, hospitality, education, healthcare, government and transportation.
Mobilitie is headquartered in Newport Beach, California and has regional offices across the United States.
