City of Mission Viejo Connects to Potocki Conference Center with HaulPass V60s

The Thomas R. Potocki Conference Center in the City of Mission Viejo, California, was originally designed as a training center for the U.S. soccer team during the 1994 World Cup. Located in the middle of Oso Viejo Community Park with adjacent soccer fields, the building was converted by the city to a community center after the World Cup was completed. Today it serves the city as a youth activity and conference center. 

The one thing lacking at the facility was broadband Internet access. This was particularly a problem for youth counselors from Outta Bounds Events Inc. who leased the facility. The counselors conducted after-school programs, including computer classes and other community activities that required broadband Internet access. They went so far as to use their mobile phones as hot spots in order to provide Internet access for the kids in the after-school programs.

That all changed when Vubiq deployed a HaulPass V60s millimeter wave wireless link to connect the conference center to the central data center at Mission Viejo City Hall, located about 600 meters away.

An Easy, Line-of-Sight, Wireless Solution

The city had previously investigated possible alternatives to providing broadband Internet access to the Potocki Center. However, the remote location within the Oso Viejo Community Park and surrounding soccer fields would require costly, disruptive trenching and installation of high-speed fiber optic cable.

“Vubiq Networks provided us with the ideal, cost-effective, license-free wireless solution,” said Norman Nakawaki, IT Manager at the City of Mission Viejo. “City Hall and the Potocki Conference Center are within rooftop line-of-site proximity, so we were able to easily deploy the HaulPass V60s wireless links on the rooftops of each building. Installation and link alignment was very straightforward. The Potocki Center now has connectivity to the city’s network and applications.”
