Distributed Antenna System


A Distributed Antenna System is a network of antennas, connected to a common source, spread throughout a building or an area to improve the performance , connectivity, and range of (typically) mobile/wireless devices.  The common source is usually connected to an additional antenna and/or signal booster to better draw in mobile/wireless signal from various carriers and other services.

A Distributed Antenna System can be designed for use indoors or outdoors and can be used to provide dramatically improved mobile/wireless coverage in hotels, subways,  event venues, airports, hospitals, businesses, roadway and transit tunnels, etc. 

DAS is becoming increasingly popular and almost a necessity in multi-tenant commercial and residential buildings where most people are demanding better service and connectivity to their mobile carrier. 

DAS is especially interesting in these cases since it usually requires a one-time installation and minimal power to operate, and at the same time provide huge benefits to paying customers and tenants (any smartphone user). 

Some DAS are system and signal specific, but many are carrier-neutral. DAS signal amplification provided include PCS, cellular, Wi-Fi, police, fire, and emergency services.
