What are DAS and IBW?
Wireless users have come to expect their devices to work everywhere. With so much relying on being connected, today’s users can’t afford dead zones. Two major factors leading to poor coverage are an expanding user base and the raw materials utilized in today’s building construction. Combine these factors, and your facilities’ interior can become a dead zone. A DAS or IBW platform can alleviate both issues, providing reliable coverage throughout your building.
Why do you need DAS and IBW?
As wireless devices become increasingly prevalent in everyday life, the ability to have vast service coverage is paramount. When more users access a network, DAS and IBW platforms work to increase network capacity, allowing you to scale during periods of increased usage. The rise in the number of ‘green’ buildings is another reason DAS and IBW platforms are so crucial. Low-E glass, often used in ‘green’ buildings, actually blocks cell signals from reaching its occupants. Lastly, implementing DAS or IBW platforms into your network will enable a flawless cellular coverage transition when walking from outdoors into a building.
