Many businesses struggle with limited wireless coverage and mobile signals within their buildings. In this blog, we will discuss a cost-effective and efficient way to enhance your wireless coverage and mobile device signals by installing a Distributed Antenna System (DAS). A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a network of antennas that will help you achieve high quality cellular coverage and improve connectivity for your users.
HOW DISTRIBUTED ANTENNA SYSTEMS WORK
Distributed antenna systems ultimately eliminate cellular connectivity problems by enhancing cellular signals, and they do so through the installation of antennas both inside and outside of the building. When antennas are installed outside of the building, they are typically placed on the roof or near a window to bring the signal inside of the building. Interior antennas are typically placed on the wall or the ceiling to transmit an enhanced cellular signal to phones and other devices indoors. No matter what industry your business is a part of and no matter what cellular carrier your customers have, a distributed antenna system (DAS) is an effective solution for amplified signals.
WHY “DEAD SPOTS” EXIST
First, what exactly is a “dead spot” or “dead zone” regarding cellular signal? A cellular dead zone is a place where the cellular signal from a cell tower is not reaching your phone or other device adequately or strongly enough. This issue can occur for multiple reasons:
Distance: Sometimes the issue is simply distance. Your cellular reception worsens the farther away you are from a cell tower. Distributed antenna systems can resolve this issue by providing cellular signal within and without your business’ building.
Obstructions: Trees, buildings, and other materials can also interfere with the cellular signal and cause a dead zone.
Capacity Issues: Oftentimes, there are simply too many people using their mobile devices in the same space at the same time, which can also hurt the cellular reception.
No matter what reason you are experiencing “dead spots” at your business, a distributed antenna system will eliminate them by enhancing cellular coverage.
WHY YOU SHOULD INSTALL A DISTRIBUTED ANTENNA SYSTEM (DAS)
There are many benefits to installing a distributed antenna system at your business:
A Stronger Signal: Perhaps the most significant benefit is that all of your customers and employees will experience a better signal after DAS installation. As previously mentioned, a distributed antenna system covers both outdoor and indoor areas of your business, ultimately ensuring that your customers and employees will never have to worry about having poor cellular reception when they are around your business’ building.
Improved Business Communication: A distributed antenna system not only benefits your customers, but it also provides enhanced communication and improved coverage for all of your business interactions, including conference calls, large meetings, etc.
A Money-Saving Solution: Distributed antenna systems conserve energy by using low power antennas instead of high power antennas. This means your business will ultimately be consuming less power, allowing you to save money over time with reduced energy bills.
A distributed antenna system can improve your business’ efficiency in multiple ways depending on your business’ specific needs.
