Wireless cellular customers depend on the mobility of their devices wherever they go. This also puts added pressure on businesses to provide a variety of wireless technologies within their building space. The resolution is a neutral host DAS; however, specific design considerations should be used to ensure long-term system growth.
Consider the following when designing a neutral host DAS:
- Flexibility for new traffic and frequency requirements
- Integrating multiple wireless services that meet performance standards (set by wireless providers and building owners)
- Know the DAS limits and do not exceed them.
- Sharing DAS resources among multiple wireless service providers
- Use quality components that meet design specification.
- Employ experienced CTS Cabling contractors who will accurately assemble and install cabling and components.
- Design each DAS network with inter-dependencies of other networks in mind. Performance of one DAS should not degrade the performance of another.
- Pre-plan for system growth.
Considerations for long-term system performance:
Although no one can protect a DAS from becoming outdated, consider the following in order to provide flexibility for meeting new traffic and frequency requirements.
- Build the DAS with the knowledge of the WSP’s roadmap for future growth.
- Provide a flexible design that allows more channels and frequencies on existing or expanded DAS equipment to be added.
Observing these guidelines will assist with the concept of designing a DAS that meets both current and future requirements while maintaining strong system performance.
