At SigmaWiFi, every new challenge is exciting!

The first challenge we got to conquer was the somewhat unusual shape and set-up of this park. Jellystone park in Monticello is built around a large pond so we had to find a way to form our connection grid around this pond. With various cottages at different great viewpoints, Jellystone Park, Monticello is very widely spaced out. This posed a challenge because there are great distances to cover between connection points. Another challenge that our team had the opportunity to conquer was Monticello, Iowa being a fairly remote area. Many of our customers will have suppliers of bandwidth in the area so we can source our bandwidth locally and involve a small business. Jellystone, Monticello did not have any local suppliers of bandwidth that we could partner with, so another solution needed to be discovered.


Their goals, our vision

A unique aspect of this installation was having to shape our connection design in a horseshoe around the pond, a typical installation would consist of creating a large square or circular shape for our connection grid, so this unique shape was more interesting to work with. The aspect of Jellystone Park at Monticello being very spaced was wonderful for our team to experience. We installed extra tall towers to cover this space and this solved the challenge of covering the large distances because using taller towers would allow the signal to stretch further.

It was a very unique physical layout at this park and a great opportunity for our team to attack some new challenges, Our typical solution for supplying bandwidth to our customers is sourcing it from a local company. So it was a great experience for us to partner with someone who can source bandwidth to our customers remotely when needed. A remote solution ended up being the perfect way to get the right amount of bandwidth out to Monticello, Iowa to connect Jellystone Park.
