Blueprint Public Wi-Fi

Wireless SuperCluster (WSC)

The GCTC Wireless SuperCluster is focused on development of best practices for the deployment of wireless systems. Wireless networks can be a tool for economic development, a lever for tackling the digital divide and homework gap, as a core infrastructure in IoT networks, and supporting smart city applications such as public safety, energy, lighting, transportation, and more.
The success or failure of wireless network deployments often hinges on a variety of factors and tradeoffs between public policy, physics, and economics. As a result, many municipalities have struggled to deploy and sustain these systems. The Wireless SuperCluster will address these issues by focusing annually on vertical segments within the wider wireless ecosystem, conduct analysis aimed at uncovering the best practices for successful deployments, and producing blueprints based upon that informed analysis. These analyses will be conducted in the form of interviews, workshops, and reviewed case studies. Our current roadmap for the Wireless SuperCluster is:

  • 2017: Public Wi-Fi (Completed - Download The Blueprint above)
  • 2018: Internet of Things
  • 2019: Wireless Fiber Alternatives
  • 2020: 5G
