When travelling through a tunnel it used to be acceptable not to have a wireless signal. This has changed. Today, mobility and the ability to connect are essential requirements indoors, outdoors and underground. However, accessing equipment in a tunnel is not a simple task. It is therefore essential that a robust system is put in place so that the need for maintenance is kept to a minimum. Careful consideration also needs to be given to equipment location during the design phase. For example where and how will you deploy remote units and base stations so they can be easily accessed whenever necessary? A further concern when creating a wireless system is avoiding interference with frequencies used by the emergency services.
