Passive DAS - Boost Cell Phone Signal in Small Buildings.

To keep up with tennants demands for in building cell phone coverage, facility managers are turning to DAS, a solution that boosts cell phone signals within the building. A Passive DAS is great for smaller building sizes . A  properly designed and installed passive DAS can meet public requirements, and provide coverage to multiple wireless service providers.

Telcosat has installed Passive DAS in remote workcamps. 

Passive distributed antenna systems are made up of a network of coaxial cables, couplers, power splitters and antennas to distribute wireless signals throughout buildings. The initial incoming signal from teh remote cell tower is generally amplified via a BDA (Bi-Directional Amplifier) or Cell Phone Signal Booster.

Antennas located farthest from the cell phone signal booster will transmit a lower signal in the downlink (the signal from the cell tower to the cell phone) than the antenna located closer to the BDA.

A Passive DAS is typically cheaper in smaller buildings than its active counterpart. The signal in a passive DAS installation does not travel very far over the cable. Consequently these systems suffer significant signal loss over large distances, with each frequency having different loss characteristics.

Passive DAS are also typically subjected to higher noise in the uplink (the signal from the cell phone back to the cell tower) when compared to the antennas that are closer to the signal booster. Consequently, Passive DAS design is classically used for smaller coverage areas (less than about 200,000 square feet).

Telcosat has a Passive DAS solution to meet your building size.
