Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS)

Great advances in telecommunications have transformed the world as we know it. The convergence of voice, data, and video has enhanced all aspects of our lives, and we are more connected now than ever before.

Whether for emergency response or every day communications, uninterrupted wireless coverage for voice and data is vital in commercial buildings and public venues. The consumers of today demand better coverage and higher bandwidth universally, including in places that are difficult to reach with traditional cellular infrastructure. Today, "data hungry" locations include densely occupied buildings, packed public venues, vast campuses and shopping malls, and even underground. Users in these locations expect wireless technology to be as reliable and seamless as it is outdoors.

Proven Solutions to Bolster Coverage and Enhance Capacity

Our team has performed turn-key DAS installations for both public safety and cellular systems, from site surveys to RF design, project management, installation, commissioning, optimization, and testing. Our thorough coverage analysis and baseline of existing macro system guarantees our clients an optimized design that will maximize coverage inside buildings, meeting current and future capacity needs. Commdex is vendor agnostic, has strong carrier relationships, and is a certified solution provider and installer for key DAS OEMs, allowing us to choose an optimized solution to meet your in-building coverage needs. Our DAS system integration follows a structured approach with focus on quality assurance along every step in the process.
