AT&T plans to boost wireless coverage for mobile devices at UF Health departments with multiple antenna installations through its distributed antenna system.

The system aims to provide consistent wireless coverage in heavily trafficked indoor or outdoor spaces that might have connectivity problems because of terrain or buildings, among other issues.

The installment is part of AT&T’s initiative to connect faculty and students throughout the UF campus. Last year, similar installations were brought to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and UF Health Shands Hospital.

This year’s installations will increase coverage at UF Health Shands Hospital; the Shands Cancer Hospital; the communicore building; the health professions, nursing and pharmacy complex; the McKnight Brain Institute; the biomedical sciences building; the dental science building; the Stetson Medical Sciences Building; and the academic research building.
