Systems Integrators – a vital link to bringing in-building wireless solutions to the middleprise
March 15, 2018 / Curtis Burkhart
Systems integrators in this market have consistently run into the same pain points, regardless of the industry in which they specialize. Active DAS solutions, the gold standard for uniform cellular service inside large venues, are too costly per square foot for the middleprise budget. They also take too long to install – up to 18 months – especially when one considers that many businesses today depend on their mobile phones for mission critical operations, like sales calls. Passive DAS solutions (boosters), on the other hand, generally fit the right price point for the middleprise budget and are faster to install. However, systems integrators that commission a passive DAS walk away from installs expecting calls from dissatisfied customers due to issues with the signal attenuation and strength limitations of this technology.
