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 […]
If you’ve been abreast of the whole 5G hype, you’d know that the proposal of a nationalized 5G wireless network has stimulated lot of controversy, forming a wave of reaction across most agencies and the political spectrum. This could be because 5G network is becoming such a haloed technology in the industry with a lot of hopes and expectations of it. For starters, 5G or fifth generation network is the next G of mobility which would use high frequency airwaves […]
We are well into the second month in a brand new year and I have started to fervently check off new year’s list of things to accomplish; so far I think I’m doing a decent job. Now, what I also want to look back and review from last year is the tech-trend. Having always been amazed by how technology evolves and advances every passing day ( especially so in the wireless macrocosm), I wanted to check back on what technology […]
Amidst the intense debates over Net Neutrality, the long-prevalent problem of call drops in mobile networks is still a new burning subject for many people. Whether you’re taking or making a call, if it is interrupted before either party decides to end the call, it is known as the infamous call drop. The real culprit for the dropped calls may either be in the Macro or the Micro network, or both, but without the shadow of a doubt, it […]
Let’s get this one straight. If you need to cross the Atlantic pond and get to the other end, you can’t do it in a single-engine aircraft. Those are best suited for recreational and private use. Similarly, if you own an organization but attempt to run it on a residential grade Wi-Fi, you’re bound to experience similar things as you would at home – low on energy, low on productivity, and high on distractions.
Dropped calls and feeble data connections are modern day nuisances, but for public safety officers, it could very well be a matter of life and death. Every mobile connection, conversation, and video transmission counts when public safety is at stake. For this reason, the providers of dedicated public safety wireless communication networks aim to build a private system for public safety communications through full build-outs. Twenty-nine states have decided to opt-in to FirstNet and AT&T build-out plans that are […]
Happy New Year and welcome to a shiny new 2018! It was a busy year in the tech world, and 2018 looks no different. We are already looking at some significant tech trends that are expected to make waves this year. While terms like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and Blockchain dominated the technological world in 2017, the prediction is that such technologies will only get more advanced, talked about, adopted, accepted, and prevalent in 2018. Here are the five tech […]
Providing outstanding customer service in the hospitality sector has always been a critical success factor for any establishment, whether for a global hotel chain or a local motel. It involves understanding the customers, their expectations, and their true needs and desires.
As carriers continue expanding and densifying their networks to meet the capacity and bandwidth requirements that never seems to slow down, the economically viable In-Building Wireless (IBW) solutions have become more critical than ever before – and it’s only a start. Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), Single Carrier Small Cells, and Multi-Carrier Small Cells combined make up today’s in-building voice and data solutions.
Net Neutrality, the principle that says the Internet Service Providers should treat all content equally and not give preferences to select digital content providers, has been lost. In layman terms, Net Neutrality simply means the consumer can load every website, video, app, gif, or any content on the internet evenly, regardless of where it is hosted. For instance, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) may not charge additional dollars for sites that stream movies or promote a specific agenda. This is […]
