When considering a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS) or enhancements to an existing ecosystem, what are the critical steps and considerations to ensure your deployment meets current demands and future growth? Building a comprehensive DAS ecosystem requires careful planning and expertise to ensure that cellular, public safety, and wireless signal availability is always on.
TESSCO's system architects have outlined the eight critical steps to successfully deploy a new DAS.
Backhaul is a key element in creating high-performing networks, but challenges mount when clear line of site isn't a reality. In the real world, businesses and industries of all types must find alternatives when connecting non-contiguous sites. They are faced with hills, valleys, trees, buildings, and other encumbrances to clear line of sight.
Ericsson's spectrally-efficient non-line-of-sight (NLOS) solutions enable businesses to optimally deploy network infrastructure based on what works best in the radio environment, encumbered sight and all, achieving 4 to 6 times more capacity in backhaul compared to traditional NLOS solutions.
Radio communications can be unreliable inside large and small facilities, multi-floor and high-rise office buildings, apartment complexes and public venues. In-building structural-, mechanical- and electrical-generated interference, and the many obstructions encountered by emergency personnel moving through the building, weaken two-way radio and wireless device signals, causing communications to be dropped.
A lack of reliable communication can be dangerous for emergency responders, such as police, paramedics, and firefighters, as well as for the building occupants they are trying to help.
With the rapidly evolving trends in fleet management, forecasts indicate a doubling of the number of installed units by 2018. More and more companies are looking for ways to optimize driver behavior, find the most efficient routes to maximize productivity, and explores ways to achieve sustainability.
No longer limited to large fleets specifically in the business of logistics, fleet management's benefits and ROI are increasingly becoming more attractive among businesses where fleet and logistics is not a core competency. Vehicles will be outfitted with smarter and more extensive solutions due to the development of new technologies like biometric verification, gamification, delivery apps, and wearable technology. This new technology, combined with an evolved approach to fleet management, will ultimately strengthen the reliability and efficiency of fleets. Detailed below are a few emerging trends that are expected to go mainstream in the near future.
