Whoop Rapid Deployment Kit Delivered – 22 APR 2020
Whoop Wireless delivers 4G/LTE Rapid Deployment platform to Colorado warehouse customer.
Whoop Wireless has delivered its Rapid Deployment platform to a commercial customer to enhance warehouse operations and job site 4G/LTE cellular signal at the customer’s Colorado location. “The current state of affairs with COVID-19 has put a tremendous strain on critical infrastructure components for our customer base throughout the country. Whoop’s ability to deliver our Rapid Deployment Kit has made an impact for this customer to deliver the expected Quality of Service to their end user during these difficult times. At the end of the day, commerce is still expected to flow and commitments are expected to be fulfilled for critical communications infrastructure – this must be done in a safe and responsible manner. The Whoop Rapid Deployment Kit meets that need,” stated Jeff Bell, Chief Executive Officer and President of Whoop Wireless.
Bell also commented on the typical relationship that Whoop has with its customer base, “This scenario is also a great example of one small business helping another during these difficult times. ATNI has been there for us on several occasions when we needed help, and today we were able to help them serve their customer base. It is always good to have relationships that are of mutual benefit to both companies. That scenario makes for a common mission and purpose in driving revenue and excellence in customer service – just business 101 stuff.” Bell stated.
Bell continued by further explaining the robust qualities of the Rapid Deployment Kit, “The Whoop Wireless Rapid Deployment Kit can be deployed in a small cell interface (SCI) platform – with Ethernet connection; a donor over the air platform (HE4) – no internet connection needed; and/or a hybrid box with both platforms.The Whoop Rapid Deployment Kit is very flexible and very robust. If you need coverage for 25,000 square feet or under – we can do that. If you need to scale the kit to 250,000 square feet – we can do that as well. We have the ability to deploy our proprietary indoor technology to various temporary locations/jobsites as needed – and we have been doing this for over a year so it is a platform and process we are very comfortable with implementing and maintaining.”
“The cellular signal inside our warehouse was always unreliable. Outside we had good coverage, but once we stepped into the office and warehouse area, there was a good chance the call would drop or become very intermittent. With the Whoop system, I never have to worry about the stability of my ongoing calls or tell the other party ‘I might have to call you back if I drop you’.” – Bil Cameron, VP of Sales and Services – ATNI
The patented whoopFAST™ Small Cell Interface (SCI) delivers 4G/LTE in-building coverage for the four Tier 1 mobile network operators, serving >98% of users Day-1. It includes ten radio inputs and four outputs. The inputs include eight small cell (femtocell) inputs and two over-the-air (OTA) inputs. The OTA inputs use band-specific repeaters to boost the OTA signal for simulcasting throughout the in-building coverage area. The small cell inputs are operator-specific, with the capacity of each small cell switchable to any of the four outputs. Up to 50 antennas may be connected to each SCI. A Whoop Antenna Array Element (AAE) is connected to each antenna to boost output power through the antenna. This enables Enterprises to distribute a femtocell signal to a coverage area 50x larger than the area of a typical stand-alone femtocell. The SCI passive switch matrix optimizes the delivery of capacity where required in the coverage area. Capacity may be simulcasted throughout the building, or mapped to targeted coverage zones, based on enterprise capacity requirements and available signal source capacity.
