What is a Distributed Antenna System? (DAS)

DAS or Distributed Antenna System, is a wireless infrastructure architecture that allows for the use of mobile phones and other wireless devices in select areas that do not have direct access to a macro tower or power source. DAS works by receiving power from a radio frequency (RF) sources, and distributing it over a system of fiber, cables and antennas so that the signal reaches throughout a building, arena, venue or public campus space. Depending on the type of system, the signals are transported via coax or fiber optic cables to remote antennas. These remote antennas are compact, and can be placed discretely in an indoor environment.

Why Do I Need DAS In My Building?

Mobile traffic and data usage is rising quickly, and is in high demand especially in-building. With the increased usage for indoor mobile phone applications and data on the rise, DAS solutions are quickly becoming a necessity for businesses and buildings with coverage challenges.

What Are The Main Components Of DAS?

Depending on the type of system, the signals are transported via coax or fiber optic cables to remote antennas. These remote antennas are compact, and can be placed discretely in an indoor environment. Sometimes called antenna nodes, these antennas are the redistribution points of the DAS network. With the aid of the remote antennas, the RF signals are distributed to places they could not directly reach without the distributed antenna system. Though each DAS solution has common components, it will be built to overcome the specific communication challenges in a particular building or location.

How Do I Start The Process Of Getting DAS In My Building?

 When the expert DAS deployment team at HALO builds a solution for a client, the team will first perform a site survey to gather preliminary information about the location and specific coverage needs. This site survey includes floor plan details such as public vs. private areas, and identifies all areas in need of coverage if the solution will be built for just part of a building. The team will gather information regarding the building’s construction materials (plasterboard, concrete, metal, etc.) which will affect a signal’s ability to travel.

b. With preliminary information gathered, the implementation team evaluates the RF reception in each area, determines the locations for each component of the system including the headend room, and plans the fiber and cable routes. In addition, the team considers the security needs of the DAS solution. Performing a detailed site survey will ensure that each component of the system is chosen and placed for successful communication in all targeted areas.

Why Is Cellular Coverage Bad In My Building?

There are many factors that impact cellular coverage and network capacity in-buildings. Low-e glass, steel and concrete building materials, surrounding buildings that block signal, distance of nearby macro towers and the ever increasing mobile usage all contributing issues that negatively impact coverage.
