world-class wireless design and deployment

MCS demonstrated world-class wireless design and deployment capability using the latest WIMAX, Wi-Fi and mesh technology to provide 26 square miles of dual radio Wi-Fi mesh network for the City of Hollywood Florida. This system is also known as “Wireless Hollywood”. In just 18 months we deployed 750 internet access points (IAPs) that are connected to 11 backhaul sites around the City of Hollywood. The sum of the devices – two-system radios/routers, subscriber modules, canopy radios, point-to-point radios, antennas – forms a monolithic mesh network; Hollywood’s very own internet.

Each strategically located IAP is a two-radio system that uses a 2.4 GHz radio for the general public, City code enforcement and utilities; while a 4.9 GHz radio is exclusively for law enforcement and emergency first responders. This system design notably increases data throughput over a single-radio system.

The mesh network has been tested at 96.3 percent street level coverage on the 4.9 GHz safety band, and each point tested well above the signal strength standard (-79 RSSI signal strength). The radios at the 2.4 GHz public frequency demonstrated 94.7% aggregate wireless coverage.

MCS’ deployment is enhanced by VMM (vehicle mounted modems) that enable installers to test a radio installation by traveling through a neighborhood. It allows for much faster radio installation and more accurate testing.

MCS has helped the City realize its stated slogan: “Wireless Hollywood”.
