What is Cellular DAS?
A cellular distributed antenna system (DAS) is an effective way to deal with poor reception inside a structure. By installing a network of relatively small antennas to serve as cellular signal repeaters, Seamless Cellular can solve this issue. These antennas are physically connected to a central controller integrated with the wireless carrier’s network.
Importance of Cellular DAS
Poor cellular connectivity is a very common problem indoors and is more than likely due to the construction material used in a building. Concrete, metal and low-e glass materials, especially in LEED-certified buildings can bounce back cellular and radio frequency signals resulting in low signal or frequently dropped calls. Additionally, the amount of voice and data required simultaneously by multiple users can slow down or even interrupt cellular performance.
By installing a Seamless Cellular cellular DAS, you will maximize your building’s revenue potential by delivering uninterrupted coverage while keeping up with the demands of today’s mobile device users. In addition to enhancing customer satisfaction, Seamless Cellular cellular DAS will enhance your building’s operational efficiency.
Why Seamless Cellular for Cellular DAS Design & Installation?
At Seamless Cellular, we know mobile device users will greatly benefit from our cellular DAS, providing a superior experience when accessing the network. Seamless Cellular cellular DAS provides seamless connectivity to meet the high demand for voice and data. We offer indoor wireless tailored to your needs. Our DAS experts will work with you to develop a customized solution based on your site’s conditions and building management requirements. We will stay involved throughout permitting, construction and installation of your system.
DAS and Small Cells
When necessary, Seamless Cellular custom designs in-building systems that utilize both DAS and Small Cell technologies. Small Cells are low-powered cellular radio access nodes that operate in both licensed and unlicensed spectrums. They have a range of up to several miles and are used for in-building and outdoor wireless service in areas requiring much higher user capacity. Seamless Cellular will review your facility requirements and propose the best solution which may result in a combination of both technologies.
Maximize Your Building’s Revenue Potential Through Positive Customer Experience
Nearly 80% of communications happen indoors. Increasingly, tenants are demanding seamless cellular reception inside. Reliable indoor connectivity is now considered a necessity, not just an amenity. We offer the perfect sized system for your indoor coverage and capacity needs. Install a reliable cellular indoor wireless solution from Seamless Cellular and keep your customers coming back.
A passive DAS uses passive RF components such as coaxial cable, splitters, taps, and couplers to distribute signal inside a building. The farther the antenna is from the signal source and any amplifiers, the more attenuation (loss) there will be in the power broadcast from that antenna. Designing a passive DAS correctly requires calculating precise link budgets to make sure the outputted power at each antenna is equal.
Passive DAS deployments are typically simpler than other types of distributed antenna systems, which our customers appreciate. However, performance limitations often mean that we recommend active or hybrid DAS systems for medium-sized and larger buildings.
An Active DAS converts the radio frequency transmissions from the signal source signal so they can be distributed via an optical or ethernet cable. A “master unit” combines the signals from multiple carriers and performs this conversion. Some Active DAS systems also “digitize” this signal which adds cost but improves performance (see below). Once converted, an Active DAS transmits the digital signal over fiber optic (“Fiber DAS”) or ethernet cables to remote radio units (RRUs) that convert the signal back to an RF signal. These RRUs are also sometimes called “nodes” or even “active antennas” depending on the vendor and the architecture of the system.
Unlike their Passive DAS counterparts, Active DAS deployments minimize the use of coaxial cable used to distribute signal. In some cases there is no coaxial at all; this is called a “fiber to the antenna” or “fiber to the node” system.
