Preferred Integrator to Wireless Carriers
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.
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.
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.
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.
