Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT

During the winter, the canyon is full of skiers and snowboarders heading to the slopes, while cyclists, hikers, and campers keep it busy during the summer months. However, with only a single tower on the side of the canyon, wireless service was unreliable—making it difficult for travelers to coordinate planning, receive up-to-date weather and safety reports, or access 911 services. It also meant that emergency responders often didn’t have access to wireless communications while in the canyon. This was more than an inconvenience; it was a safety hazard. We planned, coordinated, and deployed a small cell solutions (SCS) network that enabled reliable voice and data services to the canyon and improved safety.
