bout DAS With demand for wireless services growing unabated, you need to ensure wireless service inside

your building. Whether its in a hospital, hotel, airport, or ballpark, subscribers expect wireless services to be available for their voice, data and multimedia needsand especially in the event of an emergency. Traditionally, indoor cellular coverage was unreliable because of the issues with getting RF signals through to the inside of buildings. Distributed antenna systems (DAS) have proven to be a viable means for wireless operators and building owners to extend cellular wireless coverage indoors. How it Works With a standard in-building DAS, the cellular source, such as a wireless base station provides the wireless signal to the building through an antenna or wired landline connection. In the building itself, the DAS system consists of head-end equipment, bi-directional amplifiers, fiber distribution remote units, and in-building antenna access points, all connected through coax and fiber cabling. The head-end equipment receives the signal from the base station and converts the RF signals to digital pulse signals. The digital signals are then is distributed via fiber cabling to a network of fiber remote units and antenna access points that are located throughout the building. These antennas receive and radiate the RF signals to provide reliable wireless coverage. Multiple wireless technologies can be supported with a single DAS, including CDMA, GSM, iDEN, LTE, PCS and WiMax. In addition, a public safety wireless network can be accommodated on the same DAS. In-building wireless systems are also quite effective at delivering reliable service to campus settings with multiple buildings, such as corporate office parks, hospital and university campuses. Distributed antenna systems play a critical role in providing reliable access to in-building wireless services to support voice, data and multimedia applications across all industries. Since more than half of all cellular traffic is indoors, property owners and carriers are investing in DAS to extend service into buildings and campuses across the board.

Homogeneous coverage and sufficient capacity can be provided from car park through stairwell to office or exhibition hall with maximum QoS (quality of service) and GoS (grade of service). Wireless operators may choose from a wide variety of power levels and other features to maximize coverage and quality while optimizing cost. For example, in a high rise building, capacity and coverage may be shaped by creating a distribution system that allows each floor to share the capacity of other floors with a low power ION-B, Cell-Max indoor antennas, and RADIAX

radiating feeder cable. All units interface to A.I.M.O.S., the Andrew Solutions Integrated Network Operating System (OMC). RF Repeater SystemsFor indoor and outdoor coverage solutions, Andrew Solutions provides a full line of pico and micro class off-air RF enhancers and macro class off-air digital Nodes, both called repeaters. Designed as primary infrastructure, Andrew Solutions repeaters are also ideal for any phase in deployments where cost, coverage, and quality must be enhanced and optimized. Repeaters provide RF signals for wide area coverage through antennas. All Andrew Solutions RF enhancer products are self-diagnosing, self-adaptive, and virtually maintenance free. Node X Series repeaters for outdoor application enable high quality voice and high speed data service in areas where it was previously not available. Furthermore the digital Node X repeater removes antenna-to-antenna isolation problems through its ICE (Interference Cancellation Equipment) feature which is mandatory to achieve high output power when donor and coverage antenna(s) are close to each other. Additionally the Node X rates QoS measurement statistics, and exacts setups through an integrated measurement receiver (signal decoder). The digital multi-band Node A RF Enhancer with its multi sub-band frequency selection in combination with a passive distribution system enables high quality voice and high speed data service in larger buildings where it was previously not available.
