Leverage DAS to enable wide-area services
The potential benefits of smartphones, tablets, and all things wireless are life-changing. From increased productivity and efficiency in the corporate world, to increases in patient safety and quality in healthcare, wireless devices and applications are driving generally happier customers everywhere.
Smartphone and wireless data usage is more than doubling every year with over 70% penetration of smart devices that leverage 4G LTE high-speed data services. Meanwhile, new
building codes, such as ICC IFC ’09 and NFPA 72 210, are mandating approved radio coverage
for first responders.
But buildings, where we spend 80% of our time, present special challenges for wireless connectivity and often times have no more than 20% coverage for devices such as cell phones and tablets. High-rises and buildings with large footprints or below ground features can present unique challenges to deploying reliable wireless coverage. Additionally, modern construction techniques and materials used to achieve LEED certifications can block or degrade wireless signals, causing disruptions in connectivity – leading to dropped calls and lost data connections.
Black Box brings wireless coverage indoors through an in-building, wireless distributed antenna system (DAS), called InnerWireless4G. Enabling key wireless services with mission-critical
