How a Distributed Antenna System Works
A Distributed Antenna System, or DAS, is a network of smaller, spatially separated antenna nodes connected to the communications network. A DAS network splits the transmitted signal among several smaller antennas to provide coverage and reliability over the same area as a single cell tower antenna. DAS networks are effective in areas with difficult topography, structural impediments (e.g. buildings, or within buildings), or in locations where, for a variety of reasons, it is not optimal to build a traditional macro sites.Many buildings are unable to receive cell phone and emergency radio signals throughout their facilities. The National Fire Code has urged jurisdictions to create guidelines requiring distributed antenna systems in larger buildings so that emergency responders are able to use their radios to communicate during emergency situations. These systems allow radio signals to be received deep in the recesses of the largest and most complex facilities, and also ensure that cell phone signals are accessible for your employees, customers, and business operations.
