Cellular Site RFP to Expand Core Campus Cellular Coverage

As of May 2005, IET, in coordination with the Office of Real Estate Services, will be issuing a cellular site licensing RFP that will make campus rooftops available to cellular providers that meet the campus??? licensing criteria. This RFP will be the first time that UC Davis has opened the core campus to cellular service providers. Current cellular coverage in the core campus area is insufficient to meet the anticipated future demand by students, staff, and faculty. Since only a small share of campus cellular phone users are managed by IET, the campus determined that site licensing agreements should be negotiated with the greatest number of cellular carriers, with a focus on coverage and site license revenue generation.
