The internet is a wonderful thing and it’s allowed us to do so many things. We are able to chat all day long on social media, find out breaking news stories as they are released and even talk to people on the other side of the planet as though they are sitting right across from us.
However, problems can arise when we actually want to connect to a system. This can happen anywhere from our own homes to our offices at work; some areas of a building simply have better connection areas than others. This can be a real pain, particularly if your favourite spot on the couch doesn’t get you a good signal. There are ways to fix this, however, and that’s why I’m here to talk about DAS wireless solutions. What are these, then? Read on to find out in my 2020 guide to the technology.
So what actually are DAS wireless systems? Well, as I’ve already mentioned, we all know the hatred we have for situations where we just can’t seem to get a good internet connection in a building. Some areas of the building get really strong signals while others struggle to capture it.
In essence, DAS (distributed antenna system) systems are designed to make sure that all areas of a building receive equal signal strengths. They do this by getting rid of so-called ‘dead zones’ and strive to provide equal coverage throughout a building. These kinds of technology have proven to be really popular in recent times, particularly amongst business owners. They are able to ensure all their customers have great internet strength no matter where in a building they are.
So what are the benefits to installing a DAS wireless system? Well, I’ve obviously already touched on the most important one; it means you can get great internet coverage no matter where in a building you are. Lets say, for example, that you own a restaurant.
Some of your customers who will be sitting in the main area of the dining area will have great coverage no matter what and they’ll be really happy. However, there may be some diners sitting in the corner who the signal can’t quite reach; they’ll be very disappointed by this. If you install DAS systems, you can rectify this. Internet signals will reach all corners of the room and everyone will be happy- this will be the case no matter where you install them.
There are, however, some disadvantages to installing these kinds of wireless systems. Primarily, they are pretty difficult to actually install in the first place. Because every building is different, a specific plan has to be created for every installation and this can pose problems.
DAS systems have to be put in place in the most difficult to reach corners in a building and this can be challenging for engineers- it can be hard to reach these areas. However, if you are able to hire some high quality engineers then there’s no reason why DAS systems couldn’t be a good option for you.
