Rural Government Telecom Planning – Modelling Innovative Solutions
Authors: Anna Tapp
In a world where telecom providers pay by miles of fiber, providing rural communities access to broadband internet and mobile wireless is challenging. The farther the fiber needs to be laid, the fewer the people to serve. We discuss the use of ArcGIS and Cellular Expert in modeling wireless end user possibilities launching from fiber expansion to schools and emergency facilities. By simply building infrastructure to vital institutions, communities can leap forward with smart engineering.
