College of DuPage Chooses 5G
Wireless for Campus-Wide Deployment – Largest Single Campus
Community College in U.S. Opts for 5G Solution
Marina del Rey, CA – September 19, 2005
Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless
broadband industry and a wholly-owned portfolio company of 5G
Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:
business development company, announced today that the College of
DuPage (http://www.cod.edu/) in
Glen Ellyn, Illinois, has selected the 5G Wireless solution for
broadband wireless coverage throughout the campus.
Located 35 miles west of Chicago, the College
of DuPage has become the largest single-campus community college in
the United States, serving about 34,000 students. With half of all
Illinois college students attending community colleges, DuPage
enrolls roughly 1 out of 4 high school graduates from its district.
5G Wireless Solutions was asked to primarily
focus on the college’s indoor wireless challenges given the
preponderance of multi-story academic buildings throughout its 273
acres and heavy volume user applications. The company responded with
an efficient array of indoor base stations to provide ubiquitous
coverage throughout a wide range of old and new structures.
Utilizing its NLOS (Non-Line-of-Sight) Wi-Fi technology, these
indoor base stations provide superior area coverage over long
horizontal distances while penetrating up to three vertical floors.
This three-dimensional coverage advantage provides a competitive
edge over other wireless indoor access points.
“We’re able to leverage the same technological
advantages employed in our long-range, outdoor applications to
those environments requiring elaborate indoor installations,”,
stated Frank Simonelli, 5G’s Vice President of Marketing. “Our ‘less
is more’ value proposition applies both inside and out.”
As an example, the company expects to cover
one 378,000 sq. ft. three-story building, with nearly 300 rooms, by
employing only four strategically placed indoor base stations. A
competitive equipment scenario would have required about 50 or more
access points to do the same job. The 5G deployment results in
savings not only in front-end capital equipment costs, but also in
terms of ongoing operational expenses and the value of staff time in
administering an excess volume of individual access points.
