Case Study: Princeton University Faces Challenge to Extend Current DAS into New Building

Carrier-Grade DAS Solutions for Universities

By: Tessco Technologies

MCA Join Forces to Extend CommScope DAS at Princeton University

Although every challenge is different, MCA collaborates directly with each customer to determine the scope of the project and the best solution to fit the needs and budget of that customer. See how MCA solved Princeton University’s wireless network issue.

Princeton University’s new Lewis Center for the Arts needed a wireless network solution that would serve the 139,000 square feet of classrooms, offices, and performance spaces, as well as the courtyards and common areas within the complex. TESSCO Technologies, teamed with distributed antenna system (DAS) integrator MCA to develop a solution to extend the campus’s current CommScope DAS installation to accommodate the new addition.

MCA collaborated with Princeton’s Office of Information Technology to design a solution utilizing CommScope’s ION-E unified wireless infrastructure technology, and then worked with TESSCO to develop a comprehensive plan for equipment, financing, and project fulfillment support, including customized shipping schedules and specialized financing terms.

CommScope’s ION-E is a unified wireless infrastructure platform designed around standard IT structured cabling architecture, giving it flexibility and scalability while maintaining a level of simplicity. It helps meet the needs of both cellular coverage and reliable public safety communications that are crucial during emergencies. TESSCO’s sale of the ION-E platform marked the technology’s first announced sale via a U.S. distributor.

The Lewis Center for the Arts is a new facility under construction on Princeton’s campus in New Jersey. The center will house performance and teaching spaces for programs in Theater and Dance, the Department of Music, and the Fellows in the Creative and Performing Arts program. The complex consists of three buildings around a courtyard, with a shared common space and several public areas, including an art gallery, theater, dance studio, and music rehearsal room.
