A federal law enforcement agency was experiencing cellular coverage challenges in its 60,000 sq. ft. canine training facility located in a rural area in Virginia, about 60 miles outside of Washington, DC. There are approximately 30 employees working in the facility who rely on their cell phones to be in constant communications with colleagues, but a
weak cellular signal outside the kennel meant they were disconnected inside the building.
The agency enlisted Atlantic Technology Group (ATG), an AT&T Solution Provider based in Rockville, MD that provides cellular solutions for the middleprise, to create a reliable solution that would bring a signal into the facility. ATG decided to install a CEL-FI QUATRA Supercell.
“Originally, we tried to install QUATRA at the facility where we relied on the macro network and used a roof-top antenna to try to pick up the donor signal from there, but we just weren’t able to get enough donor signal to create a reliable solution,” says Connelly. “ This
ended up being one of the scenarios when using a Supercell makes the most sense.”
