Cell Phone Coverage Optimization

Posted on: No Comments

Faculty/staff/students, Over the past year, we have installed several mobility platforms to improve cell phone service in University facilities that have less than adequate coverage. We are continuing to push forward with this project and will be doing work on the system the week of August 22nd.

What does this mean for you? 

These modifications will require the carriers and our signal vendor to perform needed optimization and adjustments to the cellular network to maximize the performance of the system.

Unfortunately, this needs to occur immediately and we have planned to begin work on the week of August 22nd and expect to be done with this work by the end of the month.  During this period, cell phone reception may be limited and spotty in certain areas until the optimization is completed so prepare accordingly.  We have listed the buildings that will experience service interruptions as we work to complete this process.

Residence Halls Planned for Optimization

  • Clark
  • Marion
  • Hays
  • Colby

Other Locations Planned for Optimization

  • Multi-Purpose Dinning Hall
  • Lupton Baseball Offices
  • Library East Wing
  • Rees-Jones
  • Bass Hall
  • Schollmaier Medical & Locker Rooms

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and if you have any major concerns about this modification, please contact Steve Ambrose at x4050 or s.ambrose@tcu.edu.
