Whoop Wireless starts 400,000 square foot MDU project.
Whoop Wireless, an OEM and provider of in-building cellular and public safety platforms, has secured a contract for the installation of a hybrid fiber/coax in-building cellular platform for an MDU partnership that includes a multi-building design/build. “This project went through a series of adjustments with designs and extended coverages that allowed us to engage one of our strategic partners to finalize a solution for the customer. Our promise to our customer base is that we will find the most efficient platform to address the specific applications of a site based on the best technology available,” stated Mark Strittmatter, VP of Sales and Customer Service for Whoop Wireless. The MDU project allowed Whoop Wireless to deploy a multi-building solution as the design went through several revisions, upgrades and project expansions. The total square footage for the initial install will be approximately 400,000 square feet and include Whoop Wireless’ network monitoring and maintenance package for remote and on-site maintenance/upgrade events. “This project was complex and well-coordinated between the Whoop Wireless and client ops/engineering team – all were pushing to get this done as expeditiously and efficiently as possible.” Strittmatter concluded as he spoke about the project.
Flexible Financial Models
The CAPEX model is for those customers that want a one-time CAPEX expense with a monthly managed service plan; the Flex program is a model that involves an activation fee with a monthly managed service plan; the Cellular and/or Public Safety as a Service (CaaS/PSaaS) plan involves a model that includes a minimal activation fee/or zero down along with a monthly managed service plan.
Whoop Equipment and Project Management
Whoop’s engineering and design teams will custom design a model that fits the budget of any building from 50,000 square feet to 1,000,000+ square feet including venue-based settings (4G/LTE/5G). If you want scalability, reliability with a cost-efficient platform you have come to the right place.
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.
