Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) Summit

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

About

When it comes to coverage and capacity in today’s wireless world, good is never good enough. Consumers are demanding consistent service in areas where carriers have previously been unable to meet their demands. Carriers are often faced with poor signal quality in areas that are low-lying, rural or highly dense, and frequently face opposition from local communities when trying to put up new towers. In addition, today’s mobile data communications have gone beyond voice services. Often the demand for greater capacity services cannot be met by traditional macro cell sites alone, from either an indoor or outdoor perspective.

Increasingly, wireless carriers are leveraging the coverage and capacity capabilities of Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) to maintain QoS for the bandwidth hungry applications and services their customers rely upon.

If you’re not up to speed on the versatility and latest advances in DAS, then seize your opportunity to learn the most current information in this publication from the inaugural ACI Distributed Antenna Systems Summit that took place in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona.
