UC Davis Receives Many Site Proposals to Expand Cellular Coverage

UC Davis has received cell site proposals from nearly every nationwide cellular carrier (Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint/Nextel, and Cingular Wireless). These proposals are part of an effort to expand coverage of the voice and data wireless network throughout campus using multiple vendors. Site license agreements have been issued to each cellular carrier for review in preparation for negotiation. Cellular carriers are preparing detailed site plans for power, telecommunications, and structural requirements. Final approval of carrier sites and plans is slated for March 2006.
