  • Peak Capital Partners Owns a Multifamily Portfolio Valued At More Than $350 Million..
  • North Carolina Represents a Significant Growth Market.

OREM, Utah (Oct. 1, 2013) – Peak Capital Partners, a Utah-based residential multifamily investment company, was recognized in a recent case study for its high-speed wireless Internet private network at The Village at South Campus, one of Utah’s largest apartment communities and home to nearly 1,000 BYU students. The community is owned and managed by Peak Capital Partners.

The study, by California-based Ruckus, a supplier of advanced wireless systems for the mobile Internet infrastructure market, praised the network as one “rarely offered in the student housing market.”

As end users become increasingly more skeptical of transmitting sensitive information over unencrypted open Wi-Fi networks, the challenge for The Village at South Campus was in providing high-speed wireless Internet access for all students that would be reliable, secure, and would not require an IT staff on hand to manually manage credentials.

Peak Capital Partners selected Chicago-based InnFlux, a nationally renowned Internet technology provider, to oversee the community’s Internet services and connectivity deployment.

“Students demand connectivity at all times, on all devices, but multi-dwelling units typically don’t offer secure connectivity,” said Jamie Dunn, founder and managing partner of Peak Capital Partners. “We wanted each student at The Village of South Campus to have their own reliable private network. It is no longer acceptable to expect students to have to procure and manage their own connectivity through the local Internet service provider.”

By utilizing high-performing access points (APs), InnFlux was able to provide high-speed connectivity to nearly 1,000 student rooms and almost 2,000 registered devices (not including guest access) over two buildings including an outdoor courtyard, pool, office, and retail coverage. Influx deployed one AP to support four or more rooms. Alternative Wi-Fi suppliers typically deploy one AP per room, which would have dramatically increased management and maintenance efforts as well as upfront costs for more equipment.
