As an owner or manager of a multi-tenant building, office tower, hotel or shopping mall, mobile connectivity may be your top concern due to repeated complaints. You may have this sinking feeling inside of you whenever an employee, tenant or customer complains about not getting a strong cell signal inside the building. If this goes on for too long, you have a mutiny on your hands(!)
There're many reasons why you're not getting a proper signal. It could have something to do with the low-E film on the windows. That might have transformed the building into a massive Faraday Cage. Other factors include distance from cell towers and other buildings blocking signals.
Indeed, there's a real fear among property owners that their buildings could lose value because of poor cell phone and wireless connectivity. Due to this and many other obvious reasons, you know poor cell reception or Wi-Fi is bad business for your company. Is there anything you can do about it?
Yes, get an in-building indoor DAS solution installed in your building.
SignalBooster.com installs In-Building Wireless (IBW) systems for businesses and real estate players across the country. We install Enterprise DAS in office buildings, retail centers, factories, assembly plants, corporate campuses, university campuses, shopping malls and more across USA and Canada.
But what is Enterprise DAS?
DAS stands for distributed antenna system. Enterprise DAS is for large scale coverage expansion using commercial grade equipment. Such heavy duty equipment require carefully though-out system design to make the most of the equipment to provide maximum possible cellular coverage within commercial buildings. We have discussed DAS and explained how it works in brief within this article. Please note that we won't go into the basics of active DAS and passive DAS (or generally known as commercial building cell phone distributed antenna systems).
Why should you install an in-building indoor DAS solution?
Installing an indoor DAS or iDAS at your facility, building or campus is excellent for the following reasons:
- DAS improves the cell phone reception and wireless connectivity of your building substantially. This, in turn, improves your property's resale value. If rental property, it allows you to command or charge higher rent for condos, apartments, or offices.
- A lot of buildings these days are in a rush to get LEED certified. This improves their marketability. However, there are things you need to do to get a LEED certification such as adding insulating material to the windows and so on. This affects in-building wireless coverage in more ways than one. DAS solutions counteract such drawbacks of building enhancement.
- Deploying DAS makes your building safer as it ensures that occupants always have access to emergency cell phone services no matter what happens – a fire breakout or a natural disaster.
Connectivity is good for your business. Installing a DAS network improves wireless reception for everyone. It gives you an edge over the competition. It helps you attract better paying retail tenants and highly talented young employees.
Indeed, most retail clients these days expect the building to have DAS before moving into it. Not having an in-building commercial DAS can be detrimental to business.
Furthermore, better connectivity is now required by law. In-building wireless IBW systems increase the safety of those inside the structure. This allows them to make emergency 911 calls in case of an emergency, without worrying about the poor reception. It provides enough wireless coverage to allow multiple occupants to make calls simultaneously.
Also, it allows first responders and public safety personnel such as the police and firefighters to get in touch with the occupants of the building quickly in case of a natural disaster.
This is very important when some of the occupants are trapped in spots that receive the weakest RF signals such as stairwells, elevators, or the basement.
Many municipalities have already made the deployment of an in-building system such as a commercial DAS network mandatory for building owners. We expect IBW systems such as DAS to be a part of all fire codes eventually.
