Purdue Uni

Tech Electronics of Bloomington played an integral part in increasing the cellular coverage at Purdue University’s, Ross-Ade football stadium. This new cellular system will increase voice and data communication capacity tremendously, making those 60,000+ fans, most of whom expect to be able to use social media, very happy.

Tech Electronics helped increase cellular coverage by connecting various system components through a process called fiber-optic fusion splicing. During this process, two fiber-optic glass cables are fused together under extreme heat to produce a flawless connecting point with very little signal loss. Tech Electronics then tested and certified that all cables and connections met specifications outlined by national cellular carriers. The network now has the capacity to handle the football season traffic without overloading.
