Whoop Wireless completes system upgrade for higher education customer.

Whoop Wireless has completed a system upgrade for a higher education customer that included onboarding to Whoop’s Managed Service platform and extended warranty program. “This was a substantial multi-building project that included equipment, software and firmware upgrades, as well as, onboarding the customer to our Managed Service platform that gives the customer the ability to drill down to the node and antenna level through our proprietary Dashboard and software,” stated Mark Strittmatter, Vice President of Customer Service and Sales for Whoop Wireless. “These are the projects that validate the efficiency and work horse nature of our OEM platforms. Our whoopFast OEM Small Cell Interface (SCI) systems deliver consistent and reliable in building cellular service to our customers. Repeat business confirms the empirical data we receive not only from proactively monitoring our OEM systems but also the feedback we continue to receive from our customers as we invest in equipment and software upgrades at Whoop.” Whoop has multiple higher education/university customers that have deployed the Whoop OEM platform that continue to upgrade and/or expand their current service offerings. “We have seen a steady flow of new and existing higher education customers that understand the value of our system to improve communication in their administration, critical infrastructure and athletic buildings along with student housing. The critical nature of being able to communicate, especially in the BYOD world, continues to validate the Whoop platforms – that are scalable and cost effective – lots of good news stories out there for Whoop Wireless.”

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.
