Recently MPR IT where approached by the IT department of Kings School in Canterbury about installing a Wireless WAN network to connect four of their facilities together across the City of Canterbury. The main school is separated to the other buildings via main roads, train lines and public homes.
We where asked to look at connecting all four sites via wireless technology – From light licensed 5 Ghz to 71-76/81-86 GHz carrier grade equipment to provide speeds from 300 mbps right up to 1Gbps
Our first step was a full survey for distance, elevation and outside interference, we also had to consider existing mobile communication equipment that was mounted in one of the buildings.
Once it was clear the theory was going to work a full visual and test survey was under taken
Once a full test had been carried out, the main installation started. The frame work was erected and the first antenna installed.
The final specification was LigoWave Pro antennas with an option at a later date to install a SIAE ALFOPLUS80 to increase bandwidth
More pictures will be added as the project continues over the coming days
