SureCall offers a DAS alternative
Read these two case studies by SureCall that highlight how two impressive organizations chose to go in a different direction with SureCall’s signal booster technology, which provides in-building cellular coverage with the expensive or complexity of a distributed antenna system (DAS), small cell or hybrid-type deployment.
Signal boosters capture outdoor signals, which are then filtered and amplified to provide coverage and capacity throughout an indoor environment. This differs from DAS, which requires dedicated signal source equipment, which feeds remote radio units.
These case studies highlight how SureCall worked with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and Kaiser Permanente’s facility in San Jose, Cali., to provide in-building cellular coverage. Of the Goddard Space Flight Center deployment, Joe Comizio of DAS Worldwide said, “When we were briefed on their problems and asked to bid on solutions, we knew immediately that cell phone signal boosters would be the best solution for both sites.”
The Kaiser Permanente facility is equipped with large machinery, thick walls and floors, a high density of users and other factors that make indoor cellular propagation a challenge. According to SureCall, hospital workers frequently dealt with dropped cellphone calls, which has a direct impact on the ability for the staff to make life-or-death decisions.
