Mississippi State Upgrades Cellular for Capacity Crowds
Initially founded as a land-grant college in 1862, Mississippi State University (MSU) currently serves 17,000 students on its campus in Starkville, Mississippi. It needed a customized coverage and capacity solution. A dedicated BTS and DAS combination was the most efficient way to improve capacity and control the RF to handle the subscribers in the stadium. As the primary cellular provider serving the largest percentage of the subscribers in the Starkville area, Cellular South supported campus wireless service through their macro network with several nearby cell sites.
