PMC Wireless offers end-to-end IN-BUILDING Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) Solutions. These IN-BUILDING SOLUTIONS receive and distribute Radio Frequency (RF) or Cellular Frequencies throughout a structure to enhance coverage capabilities.
Distributed Antenna Systems dedicated to supporting mission-critical public safety communications have typically been installed as independent networks. This means that cellular communication is not typically installed on the same network or antenna system as the public safety system. In most cases this separate network concept originates with public safety’s mandate to ensure reliable connectivity.
Nearly every Distributed Antenna System solution is custom-designed for each unique environment. Variables such as building materials, dead spots, and signal interference offer specific challenges for comprehensive wireless coverage. PMC Wireless has extensive experience deploying and maintaining in-building wireless systems that overcome these challenges and allows customers to meet or exceed their local mandates.
PMC Wireless Provides Custom Designed, Emergency Responder Radio Communications Solutions (ERRCS) or Public Safety – Distributed Antenna Systems to Enhance Radio Coverage
Most municipalities today require Public Safety-DAS installations within new building construction and upgrades to older buildings for certificates of occupancy. In addition, most municipalities require annual testing and system upgrades as necessary to their PS-DAS for facilities to stay current with local mandates and meet inspection requirements.
Wireless in-building signal coverage requirements are based on national codes initiated by the following organizations:
- Federal Communications Commission (FCC):
- National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):
- International Fire Code (IFC):
Local Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) such as your local Fire Marshall may have addition requirements associated to their specific wireless coverage needs. Navigating all these requirements to compliance can easily become overwhelming if you are not staying on top of the current codes and leveraging a trusted partner like PMC Wireless.
In addition, most municipalities require an annual inspection and renewal of a facilities compliance to their wireless coverage mandates. At PMC Wireless we provide many of our customers service agreements that provide the peace of mind that we will maintain your facilities DAS system and work with your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to make sure your staying compliant.
Installing Distributed Antenna System and Bi-Directional Amplifier are not only beneficial for first responders in emergency situations, they can also be a vital enhancement for operational-critical UHF & VHF two-way radio communication that improves productivity and safety for maintenance, engineering, operations, and building security teams. Keeping work groups connected through-out your facility no matter where they are located should be a high priority to ensuring employee security and safety.
Cellular BDA - DAS Solutions
No Cellular Coverage – Dropped Calls – Slow Internet Access – Frequent Website Buffering – Long Up-Load / Down-Load Times
At the very least these types of wireless connectivity challenges for cellphones, tablets and laptops can be frustrating, but if you are trying to run a business slow or inadequate cellular coverage can be disruptive and expensive.
With the influx of wireless technology that is dependent upon cellular coverage, providing adequate carrier coverage and capacity has become essential for many public and private enterprises. In addition, access to cellular coverage in challenging areas such as stairwells, parking garages, tunnels, and underground floors can not only be disruptive to productivity, but the lack of adequate coverage can be a significant safety hazard.
That’s why many facilities install Cellular – Distributed Antenna Systems and Bi-Directional Amplifiers to boost wireless coverage, so people can feel confident that they will always have reception when they need it most. BDAs operate within a Distributed Antenna System (DAS), and together, BDA/DAS equipment is often referred to as an in-building signal booster
At PMC Wireless we work with all the major carriers from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon to design the best neutral host in-building Carrier System. Working side-by-side with the industry’s premier providers of DAS & BDA technology, PMC Wireless can design, install and maintain a customized Carrier Solution to meet your specific in-building needs and criteria.
Other variables such as construction materials like steel, concrete or Low E Glass, can create signal interference or dead spots that offer specific coverage challenges. PMC Wireless has extensive wireless experience engineering and deploying in-building wireless signal boosters to meet nearly any operating condition.
PMC Wireless offers free consultation and evaluation for all your coverage challenges and provides custom engineering design services with expert level carrier compliance.
When cellular connectivity becomes a challenge for your employees to conduct business or more importantly, possess a threat in case of an emergency contact PMC Wireless to create a solution that will meet both your immediate and long-term in-building cellular coverage requirements.
