The 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships were expected to draw up to 150,000 visitors to Vail. The wireless infrastructure at the time was inadequate to support the 4G LTE apps that the Colorado FirstNet team wanted to use to monitor activities during the event. The mountain topography proved to be a challenge in providing sufficient coverage and data capacity.

How we worked together.

  • Partnered closely with the state of Colorado’s FirstNet team to set up a public safety network demonstration, and provided nodes necessary to host equipment dedicated to the trial.

  • Coordinated with public safety officials and government stakeholders to obtain approval for the entire project during the design phase, which helped streamline the deployment process and keep the project on time and on budget.

  • Balanced technical radio frequency challenges, conflicting needs, and strict aesthetic requirements across multiple players.

What we achieved.

  • A model for FirstNet in other states considering various deployment options for the new Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN).

  • Project completion in a very tight construction window.

  • A state-of-the-art 4G LTE network that benefits Vail residents and visitors alike.
