Distributed Antenna Systems

Distributed Antenna Systems

A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a network of antenna nodes that share a neutral host in order to expand a wireless network by adding coverage and capacity to a specific area or building structure. This expansion increases wireless network quality to areas notoriously difficult to hold a signal.

DAS is a versatile system as it can be installed inside or outside by a cable contractor in Phoenix. The network contains a central hub, which requires fiber to link to a system of nodes. The nodes can be conveniently placed on any object, such as a sign, a light or a plant, in order to provide strong coverage everywhere within the specified area.

In addition to the benefits of the network of nodes, distributed antenna systems are installed at elevations at or below the clutter level by a cable contractor in Phoenix, meaning less power is wasted trying to compete in the airspace. There is also a reduction in fade depths and delay spread, which contributes to the production of a strong signal.

A DAS network works well in a variety of spaces, including the following:

  • College campuses
  • Heavily populated cities
  • Hotels and convention centers
  • Venues, such as concert halls, theme parks and stadiums
  • Medical facilities

The neutral host of a distributed antenna system provides the same coverage over a specific area that a cell tower would and also allows access to users of all phone companies.  It is the perfect solution for areas with large crowds, where a signal is often dropped.  The demand for DAS is growing, with thousands of DAS installations at venues, universities and other locations in Arizona and throughout the country.
