Instead of taking notes with a pen and paper, today’s students bring their wireless enabled laptops or tablets to the classroom. Smartphones allow students to check email and surf the Internet, while SMS via BlackBerrys allows students to pick up campus notices or assignments. Today’s students and faculty need campus-wide reliable cellular coverage to ensure that the educational standards of the 21st century are not only met, but exceed the expectations for a true learning environment. More and more colleges and universities need to provide state-of-the-art amenities to attract the best and brightest faculty, staff, and students.

In addition to enriching the educational environment by enabling cellular and Wi-Fi® coverage, Corning MobileAccess solutions allow for applications to enhance security on campus. Two-way radio, life and safety services, as well as the traditional WLAN and pervasive cellular coverage can all be enabled anywhere throughout the multi-building campus.

  • Save Money Through Scalability - Corning MobileAccess's modularity enables new services and operators to be added to an existing system without the disruption of pulling additional cables or adding antennas
  • Enable Comprehensive Coverage - Through the support of broadband fiber optics, Corning MobileAccess solutions support coverage areas ranging from 100,000 square feet to over 1,000,000 square feet.
