Improving Physical Safety With CBRS at UCSB

Learn how the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) utilizes a CBRS network in its campus.

Check out the Episode 4 of Field Journal featuring Kevin Schmidt from UCSB to get answers to questions like:

  • How does a campus network support a vast diversity of devices?
  • What are some of the challenges of providing outdoor network coverage?
  • How is CBRS better than Wi-Fi for large campus environments?

Key Takeaways

  • CBRS can help campuses position themselves to scale and provide a seamless connection across campus, with more flexibility in chipset support than wifi alone.
  • UCSB was able to achieve interconnectivity within its campus for IoT devices by using roof mounted CBRS cells.
  • IoT can help integrate pay stations, security cameras, and incident response systems under one reliable wireless network.
  • Strategically placed CBRS cell towers can help provide coverage for students in areas that were outside of UCSB property.
