Wi-Fi Networks

Wi-Fi technology is the fastest growing and most popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data wirelessly over a computer network, including high-speed internet connections.   As the commercial population becomes more mobile, two trends have emerged for Wi-Fi networks to address.

  1. Mobile voice and video applications now demand more bandwidth… everywhere.
  2. Because many individuals carry multiple wireless devices, network congestion can become a problem requiring additional equipment.

Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS)

What is DAS Technology?

Contrasted with a single pole antenna construction, a distributed antenna system (DAS) is a way to efficiently distribute wireless connections inside a large building where steel columns and layers of concrete can interfere with wireless signals. A DAS uses the concept of macro diversity and can be used to get rid of “dead zones” by routing radio frequency (RF) signals through copper or fiber optic cabling from a single base station to multiple antennas located throughout the building.

Simply put, a distributed antenna system allows emergency responders’ communication radios, cell phones, and other wireless devices to operate inside a building where they normally would not work. Jurisdictions around the United States are widely adopting codes and employing macro diversity by requiring DAS in new and renovated buildings.

Demand for Wireless Coverage

It has been estimated that 80% of cellular phone calls begin or end inside a building. DAS technology lets building owners add value for their tenants and their employees by enabling the use of mobile devices throughout the building. A DAS can support multiple carriers and even improve the battery life of phones, unlike a single pole antenna construction.
