There was not only a need to get WiFi to Denali lodging guests, but the employees inside the park, some having no running water to their dorms, were pleading for access to the Internet. Fortunately, we were able to utilize the existing infrastructure of old telephone wiring and designed and installed a WiFi infrastructure using VDSL2 technology. Feedback from the rank and file: "Dude, you changed my life!"
GRAND CANYON, ARIZONA
A new WiFi network involving nearly 20 separate buildings (lodging, restaurant, cafeteria, and general store) spread over hundreds of acres, was designed and built using fixed wireless point-to-point, VDSL2 over old copper, and WiFi for the park guests, visitors, and staff.
DEATH VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
A WiFi challenge for sure. One might not realize how busy it can get in the middle of the desert with lodging guests, visitors, and employees all doing their thing and all looking to connect to the Internet. A classic photo of the egg frying on the pavement can have high priority on making its way on the Internet highway. But we made that happen with a lot of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint broadband pipes and plenty of outdoor WiFi radios.
CITY OF BOULDER, COLORADO
The city's aerial fiber cable, feeding a remote water treatment plant in the mountains west of Downtown Boulder, kept getting damaged or cut leaving the plant isolated for days at a time. The city's IT department called on Data Structures to design and furnish a fixed wireless solution to back up the fiber. We accomplished that with a 525 Mbps link connecting the water treatment plant back to the city's network in town.
In May of 2017, with the help of Data Structures performing the design & installation or design only, the city launched "Connect Boulder," a free public WiFi network connecting the Civic Center, Scott Carpenter Park, and the Boulder Reservoir.
BULLFROG MARINA, UTAH
In what is considered the "North Lakes" in Lake Powell, Bullfrog Marina is a very busy marina with guest lodging, private boat and houseboat mooring and storage, boat tours, concessions, and lots of ongoing maintenance. The marina concessioner had an aging wireless network that had become outdated and inefficient. The original wireless backhaul was replaced with state-of-the-art radios and antennas, providng much improved stability and performance. A complete WiFi network was designed and installed for not only the marina but also most of the employee housing.
This 240 suite resort was limping on an aging and poorly performing WiFi network. A completely new network was designed and installed providing WiFi in all suites, restaurant, and outdoor areas. All buildings were connected with wireless point-to-point links.
Denver, CO Hotel
At the time, Colorado's largest hotel, this 1236-room property consisting of a 22-story tower, an 8-story plaza, large meeting spaces, restaurants, and bars, contracted with Data Structures to upgrade the WiFi on the entire property. This was accomplished with Ruckus state-of-the-art WiFi equipment and new fiber optic cabling connecting the tower and plaza. When asked, "How do you like the new WiFi network?" the response was, "We love Ruckus!"
