DAS as a Public Safety Tool

DAS as a Public Safety Tool

In the digital age in which we currently live, individuals have come to expect fast, wireless service everywhere they go, from home to work to businesses they frequent. In order to meet this expectation, an increasing number of office and residential building owners have equipped their buildings with distributed antenna systems.

While the number of buildings with distributed antenna systems is already great, this number is only increasing as buildings undergo installation of DAS for another purpose: public safety. Too often, first responders discover weak radio reception upon entering buildings during emergencies. With weak radio reception, communications, which are essential in emergency situations, are often disrupted. Due to the frequency of this discovery, there has been an uptick in DAS installation ordinances in cities throughout the nation.

To ensure that buildings are equipped with quality coverage for personal and business use, such as cellphones and internet, as well as for land mobile radio in the case of emergencies, it is important that building owners install the fastest, most technologically advanced systems. Most DAS installation experts will recommend the installation of 802.11ac, which is a faster and better scalable version of 802.11n. The installation of 802.11ac can provide multi-station WLAN throughput of 1 gigabit per second or faster, as well as a single link throughput of approximately 500 megabits per second. With this speed, you can rest at ease knowing your building is providing the very best all-purpose wireless service.
