Coit Tower mural restoration

A very interesting project to be associated with as SF WiFi is providing wireless design, equipment, installtion and support for wireless services at Coit tower

More info:

One of the most vexing problems was updating and rehabilitating the tower without making it look like a new building. It’s a 1933 space that needs to be restored, not redone, city officials said.

Besides the waterproofing and the roof repairs, work is also being done to upgrade the tower’s aging plumbing and electrical systems and make it more accessible to the disabled. Outside lighting is being improved, and the gift shop and commercial space inside is being completely redone for the new concession operator, who will take over when Coit Tower reopens to the public sometime after mid-April.

The improvements are startling. The murals, already cleaned and partially restored, pop with unexpected color that’s enhanced by the improvement work that’s been done around them.

An easier way to watch videos

“On mobile devices, all videos that begin playing as they appear on the screen will have been downloaded in advance when the device was connected to WiFi — meaning this content will not consume data plans, even if you’re not connected to WiFi at the time of playback”.

Solution:
SF WiFi designed and installed a stable and secure wireless bridge with high speed
access points utilizing the 5GHz channel. This solution offers enterprise spec features
such as channel interference avoidance, AES based security and higher data throughput
rates than T1/E1 or xDSL lines at only a fraction of the cost.

A foggy day in Daly City:
This wifi bridge from home office to remote office is a 4.2 mile link. The picture at the left is the South S.F. office access point and illustrates that the client is literally redeiving data from the cloud.
