MacArthur causeway: handoff

The causeway between Miami and South Beach is the location of a handoff.

That’s when a cell signal is passed between two transmission towers like the ones in downtown to the ones on the beach.

We need to find the right amount of signal coverage and overlap between transmitters to avoid interference or dropped calls.

Traffic speed and density make that even trickier.

But we carefully plan our handoffs to occur seamlessly.

So you can enjoy the drive without the dreaded dead spot in your coverage.
