Turnkey DAS Wireless Solutions

Once, the issue for cell phone networks was coverage; now, it’s capacity. From 2010 to 2014, the time Americans spent on their smartphones grew by 394%.[i] Steel, concrete, and low-e glass reduce signal penetration into buildings, even as consumers demand digital access everywhere.

Consumers demand coverage and data capacity. New buildings in major metro areas are increasingly built with materials that retard the RF signals from legacy macro towers. Consumer data use is overtaxing existing macro networks and new capacity solutions are needed. Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) are part of the solution and becoming critical for large commercial real estate, sporting venues, and other large scale facilities to meet customer demand.

Applications of DAS

SQUAN’s turnkey DAS solutions work for a variety of industries:

  • High-Rise Buildings: Mobile is vital for workplace productivity, and “dead spots” frustrate tenants and consumers. DAS is critical to quality rental space.
  • Colleges: 85% of 18-29 year olds own a smartphone.[i] DAS solutions offer wireless access for always-connected students—indoor, outdoor, and in hard-to-reach places. SQUAN’s DAS solutions support and enhance the RAVE alert system.
  • Stadiums: With tens of thousands of smartphones at sports games, wireless traffic congestion is a challenge for stadiums even when reception is strong. SQUAN’s stadium wireless solutions keep fans connected at the game.
  • Public Transport: DAS brings wireless to previously disconnected locations such as subway stations.
  • Hospitals: Tablet adoption among doctors has reached 72%, and smartphone adoption is over 80%,[ii] fueling demand for efficient, secure, HIPAA-compliant data access in hospital settings.

Squan’s Expertise in DAS

Strong project management is essential to delivering DAS solutions, from the initial site survey through to configuration and testing. SQUAN has completed hundreds of enterprise-level DAS projects, including the iconic Rockefeller Center, Quinnipac University, One Canon Park in Melville, New York, and the Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. SQUAN’s fully iBWave certified RF Engineering team can design complete new systems or redesign existing infrastructure to improve capacity and coverage of in building systems.

 

As New York City apartment towers are built to new heights using cutting-edge design and technology, developers still often find themselves stymied by an important aspect of contemporary life: providing crystal-clear, never-quit cellphone service. It turns out that the thick concrete walls, reinforced steel floors and specially coated low-emissions windowpanes used in many new high-rises can weaken, if not block out, wireless signals.
