How does a Distributed Antenna System Work?
A DAS or Distributed Antenna System comprises a network of spatially separated antennas connected to a common source, serving to enhance wireless coverage within designated areas such as buildings, stadiums, campuses, or other venues. The primary purpose of a Distributed Antenna System is to optimise cellular and wireless communications by efficiently distributing the signal from a centralised source to strategically positioned antennas throughout the target area. This approach effectively mitigates signal obstacles, ensuring superior coverage and increased capacity for mobile devices. A distributed antenna system may be deployed indoors (an iDAS) or outdoors (an oDAS).
The Distributed Antenna System is fed a cellular signal and is distributed to a network of antenna nodes that are seperated in such a way to maximise the coverage within a space. Voice and data connectivity for end-users is provided within this field by sending and receiving cellular signals on a carrier’s licensed frequencies.
iDAS, oDAS, eDAS, active DAS, passive DAS, hybrid DAS, off-air DAS, and numerous others.
