Joelle, the Museum’s Network Administrator, tests cellular signal from our rooftop.
When the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art opens in March 2007, we will be delivering the Center’s audio guide content via cell phone. Problem is, we don’t get cell service within our building’s very thick walls. By installing several antennas on the roof, we can grab existing outdoor cellular signal and bring it directly into the galleries.
Luckily we get a strong enough signal up here to funnel it inside, so there will be no dropped calls as our visitors listen to The Dinner Party audio tour.
