DAS: Are they really needed and do they cost you an arm and a leg?

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Apr 12, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  DAS, a system that boosts the cellular signal reception and coverage, has become a must-have in the commercial space. While some may still view it as a layer that simply adds costs and complexity to a real estate project, DAS can be a significant value-add to any property. Then there’s another shade: the Public Safety DAS. There are requirements mandated by FCC for buildings to have emergency responder radio coverage system.  Its systems and signal boosters provide first responders and public safety professionals with stable and reliable radio coverage in buildings and other structures. Any building owner would always want to be assured of the safety of its tenants and occupants. However, in case of any emergency, it is critical for the first responders to be able to communicate clearly in all areas of buildings and facilities in their jurisdiction. Read More

DAS for Hospitals

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Nov 30, 2017 11:00:00 AM
  A new wave on devices in healthcare is booming as the use of wireless local networks (WLANs) increases with its demands.  Hospitals usually seek the most coverage for services as well as in-house mobile radios, paging systems and emergency frontlines. The seamless connectivity between all equipments and communication devices is a crucial component in the operation of the hospitals and medical centers.  Read More

DAS for Hotels

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Nov 23, 2017 11:00:00 AM
  Every business and industry that exists today relies heavily on consistent communications for its sales, operations, product/service delivery, after sales support functions. Hospitality services are no different and they too, rely on strong, stable and sound communications for cost-effective and efficient operations. Correction. For business continuity. With 83% of American adults using some form of cellular device for communication today, Mobile phones have become a near-ubiquitous tool to seek information and communicate through various mediums and applications.  Read More

Implementing Public Safety DAS = Mandatory for occupancy permits

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jul 13, 2017 11:00:00 AM
Getting DAS and any other form of supplementary In Building Wireless (IBW) solutions installed right at the aperture of the construction phase is, in one word, smart. Last week we covered this topic and discussed why implementing DAS at the architectural stage is not only a smart move, but a crucial one in the day and age of 5G and IoT. Similarly, there are also several requirements of the Public Safety DAS, which are mandatory elements to adapt during construction phase. Read More

Implementing DAS at the architectural stage = Smart

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jul 6, 2017 11:00:00 AM
Building owners, venue owners, and large operators and service providers have been using DAS (Distributed Antenna System) for over two decades now in an attempt to enhance the network coverage in their facilities. Especially in buildings where the traditional macrocell approach doesn’t do the job of providing reliable (or any) wireless signals indoors. Mobile networks have been upgrading from 2G to 3G to LTE, and now we’re waiting for 5G to arrive here with a gusto. WIth this shift, the DAS architecture has alo evolved over time. Read More

Converging Public Safety DAS and Commercial DAS? 3 factors to deliberate on

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jun 1, 2017 1:00:00 PM
It is obligatory for many venues - large and small - to ready all infrastructure and systems needed for the first responders to communicate seamlessly over their radio equipments. Building owners and managers want to ensure that they can communicate clearly within their jurisdictions. Most often, this requires the deployment of DAS (Distributed Antenna System) that expand the outdoor public safety coverage to the interiors of the buildings in a way that no internal section of the building or facility is out of coverage.  Read More

So you're ready for the IBW project. Let's put some options on the table..

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on May 18, 2017 11:00:00 AM
 We’ve all been witnessing the way today’s enterprise workforce has been changing and evolving beyond imaginations over the recent years. We’ve all been a part of it! Part of the crowd that’s getting more crowded by the day. Number of connected devices are through the roof, and the type of applications that run on these devices are getting increasingly bandwidth-hungry. Read More

So you're ready to start a IBW project. Do you know about the space, the occupants, the demand, and the dynamics?

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Apr 20, 2017 11:00:00 AM
  IBW solutions are like Cinderella’s shoes. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for every aspiring IBW’ers.    Why? Because buildings are different. The construction materials and the way they’re built are different. Their in-building dynamics are also different. The incumbent technologies the buildings have (or not) are also unique. (What else?)

Is your DAS partner seeking all necessary approvals? Fines by the FCC can exceed $100,000.

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Apr 13, 2017 11:00:00 AM
The wireless operators have been battling and crawling with the in-building wireless coverage since the primordial days of mobile phones. From the steel-framed buildings, concrete facilities and warehouses, to thick-glassed towers, all modern day construction materials passionately interfere with the wireless signals and block any or all traces of wireless signals. It not only creates a heap of barrier for the signals to pierce into the premises, but also creates problem for the businesses and enterprises whose people heavily rely on the cellular devices and wireless connections inside the offices.
