The AT&T cellular service was recently upgraded to improve reliability through most of the clinical buildings on the medical campus.

AT&T recently completed cellular coverage upgrades to the Med Inn, Taubman Center and UH South buildings. The increased cellular coverage was attained by installing additional cellular antennas, referred to as “small cells,” that provide localized coverage to areas with weak cellular signals.

A number of these “small cells” were installed in the buildings listed above to provide a consistent AT&T cellular signal throughout. 

This is the final (shown in green) of three phases in a multi-year project of cellular improvements funded by AT&T to improve coverage within Michigan Medicine’s main campus buildings.

The previous upgrades focused on improving AT&T cellular coverage in UH, CVC and the Rogel Cancer Center. The goal of these upgrades was to make AT&T cellular service available through most of the clinical building on the medical campus.
