Safe transportation is one of the many concerns of a public school authority. Diligently addressing this concern with the help of experienced and knowledgeable experts enables a school board to turn its focus to the learning needs of its students. Safe transportation is not only facilitated by dependable vehicles and drivers, but also by clear, unbroken communication between school bus drivers and dispatch. This public school division, that serves many widespread communities, required this type of reliable radio communication. Their upgrade entailed the installation of new antenna systems. Existing antenna sites, located both on towers and on school buildings, were audited by 3CIS’s in-house engineers, who surveyed existing structures to test their soundness and their ability to support the antennas needed for the project. One of the initial surveys revealed that a wall mount did not have the capacity to support the new antenna. The incompatibility necessitated the creation of a new design by 3CIS engineers. Because the transportation department of this school division required uninterrupted communication, it was essential that the existing system remained online during the installation process. In order to ensure that their operations stayed up and running, 3CIS employees installed a non-penetrating roof mount, which was strong enough to support the new antenna. The result was a seamless transition for dispatch and the network of buses, as well as improved communication capacity, now reliable and uninterrupted.

The timely and successful completion of this project was facilitated by active communication between 3CIS and their client. Because all relevant infrastructure was located at or on a school, child safety was a chief concern. 3CIS was able to make scheduling accommodations to revolve around school timetables. Prompt installation was also reliant upon 3CIS’s ability to source in-house engineers. Without the need to coordinate with an outside company to appraise and design the antenna infrastructure, 3CIS could move swiftly from project planning to execution, as their in-house engineers assessed the infrastructure’s capacity and designed a practical, non-invasive solution.
