    Interesting news article written about one of our customers.  The Aruba people who helped install this network are on Airheads Social, so if you have questions about it feel free to ask!

    Just yesterday I read that article...good article.  It would be interesting to actually see the network in person.

     

    Hey, what is that lump under my pillow?  Ah, it is just an AP.  :smileyvery-happy:

    Here's a few shots from the visit our Lead Engineers Jeff Weaver and Jeff Goff made as it was close to turning up.

     

    Jeff G and Jeff W onsite

    Jeff G on the tarmac

    The Aruba office

    DRS hard at work into the night

    The PoP and main node towers

    High density wireless

    Rows of housing

    Moondust everywhere

     

    All photos property of DRS. It was a challenging project when it was at 700 APs, the size that it is now is just astounding.

    I'm glad to see that that network continues to do great things in difficult surroundings.
