University & Schools Mobile Signal Booster

There are two main types of school that are in need of signal improvements and we have installed successfully into both. 

  1. Older building made of solid stone exteriors, which are often in remote locations block the signal entering the building, 3 foot stone walls are a buried to all mobile phone signal
  1. Modern schools are made of the latest insulation materials, foil back insulation boards and tinted windows block any signal entering.

Some reasons Schools have installed mobile phone booster systems

  • Health & Safety concerns especially evacuation plans centered around mobile reception
  • Ensuring students especially boarding schools students have a way to communicate to parents and friends easily 
  • Having mobile signal in common breakout areas are a social place and mobile phones are a large part of the present culture

School Signal Boosters for common and Breakout areas

This can be easily done if a school wants to cover only certain areas, such as the staff room, breakout areas, GYM and accommodation areas; our system can be designed in multiple phases.

We can install into the entire school or cover unique areas which can be added to at a later stage. The school or university signal booster will cover all UK networks and operate on voice and 4G data.

Why schools need full mobile coverage for Health & Safety

Students, faculty and administrators can prepare themselves for emergencies at school in a number of ways, from conducting regular, emergency-specific drills to making sure the building’s infrastructure is up to code. When emergencies do happen, schools need to know how to respond appropriately and recover as quickly and effectively as possible.

Thoughtful planning and preparation can help ensure the safety of students and staff should an emergency occur during school hours. 

Since the adoption of technology in the School systems and the ever evolving upgrades of the data networks and mobile operator networks., More and more schools seem to be turning to technology as part of their emergency response plan and evacuation plan.

The fact is almost every child now has a phone in school. It has become imperative from a health & safety perspective. Also if that child needs to be contacted directly by a parent due to a family emergency this can be achieved. Rather than the 10 mins that may be wasted going through the system and trying to locate the child. 

Some schools have now begun utilizing these phones for notifications and emergency response plans.

How can this be achieved?

There are platforms currently available that provide the following services:

Can instantly notify your staff and students by text/SMS. They can reply “Yes”, “Ok” or “No” and  will automatically update their availability status so that everybody can be accounted for.

After installing the mobile apps, staff and students can be notified through app notifications and immediately open the app to gain more information.

Instantly call up your staff and students with a voice message that informs them that their attention is needed. Automated calls are very valuable if your team members sleep, are in noisy environments, and so forth.

The email notification can include information about the incident, as well as detailed information for further actions / tasks.

Unfortunately, not all schools have the desired network coverage for all operators.

This can be down to many reasons including location, building materials etc.

That is where MSS can help you design and install a DAS system that will ensure that your school stays connected at all times, especially in the moments you need it most.
