Cellular Technology and In-Building Wireless – the technology has sure made some herculean jumps, but we still have many more country miles to go!
[Last week, we covered the first part to this topic. Click here to access part-1 that covers the first four elements – System Coverage, System Monitoring Alarms, Battery backup, and Signal Strength. Part 2 will cover the rest of the elements of Public Safety DAS Design and Implementation.]
Public Safety DAS (Distributed Antenna System) is a system that is implemented to cater to the first responders for the wireless service, especially in-building wireless. The key purpose is to ensure that these emergency service responders can have an access to seamless, uninterrupted wireless communication whilst inside the buildings too.
When we feel welcomed as a guest, we hang around. When we feel loved and wanted as a partner, we stay. When we feel appreciated at work, we give more. When we feel rather productive as tenants, we’re more likely to renew our leases. Renting a place is not only about getting a shelter, or having gas and electricity, or good trash and sewerage systems. Not any more. Just like getting a cell phone is no longer simply about an ability […]
To start the construction of the residential project with In-Building Wireless (IBW) as one of its key inclusions is a shrewd move. Whether it is a high-rise residential complex, or tens (or hundreds) of residential homes. Whether the residential units are for sale to owner occupants, or to investors. Whatever the case may be with the construction, the new occupants will indisputably appreciate the increased productivity that comes with better connectivity.
A reliable Public Safety networks, and a solid ICT infrastructure behind it – collectively are imperative for the safety of the citizens, and the first responders. Why? Because First Response is everything!
What are Public Safety DAS? DAS has been an integral part of public safety communications since it was first installed in 1979 in an Illinois mine. Since then, provision of DAS have been key to extend mission critical communications coverage for public safety. Especially in the network-deprived areas like high-rise buildings, parking garages, tunnels, airports, shopping malls etc. The Public Safety DAS are installed for the protection of the lives – of both the first responders and the lives of […]
A multi-tenanted building and a strong cell-signal: two opposite sides of a coin that never meet. Haven’t we all been there, and been there so often? After all, the average American is said to spend 93% of their lives indoors. Of which, only 6% of that is spent in automobiles, and the 87% indoors. That ‘indoors’ comprises our residences, apartments, office towers, corporate buildings, industrial premises, factories, shopping centers, hotels and more. All these places are indoor sites that seem […]
On our last blog, we covered the five-step scoping questionnaire that we thought might be helpful to you in scoping out your In-Building Wireless (IBW) project, and to do your due-diligence. This week, we have five-step questionnaire to help you make your IBW project a success!
Just about every single one of us has experienced the plummeting bar signals where it suddenly drops from four bar signals to just one… or simply gives up. From spotty reception to call drops – we’ve all been there, and it can be exasperating and bewildering. And we know what causes it. We also know we have options, but where do we start? Here’s a quick five-point questionnaire to help you navigate through the due-diligence process of your in-building cellular […]
