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

  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.

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.
