Our DAS solutions enable multiple wireless carriers to improve coverage and capacity.
For an indoor DAS network, remote antennas are strategically placed throughout the building and are connected with fiber optic cable to a single hub containing the wireless carriers’ equipment. The indoor DAS solution provides building owners with a single system to address their wireless needs and provides wireless carriers with a system that allows them to tailor their RF signal to meet their specific coverage and capacity needs.
An outdoor DAS network consists of a central hub location which links, via fiber, a system of strategically placed antenna locations (or nodes) to provide wireless carriers with pinpoint coverage not provided by traditional coverage methods. In addition, antennas can be placed on street lights or utility poles or cleverly camouflaged as street signs, cactus, boulders or other objects.
The result is a customized wireless network that improves service quality for multiple wireless carriers. DAS solutions are an important complement to our core tower business, providing pinpoint coverage and capacity solutions for wireless carriers as well as seamless integration with our tower and rooftop assets.
