What are Bi-Directional Amplifiers?

A Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) can be a very effective component of a distributed antenna system (DAS). A BDA allows cell phone users to access service in locations that are completely obstructed from a cell tower. These locations can include basements or tunnels, places with difficult terrain, and offices in a large building that face away from the signal source.

How Does a Bi-Directional Amplifier Work?

When strategically placed in a building, the BDA receives the signal from an antenna which is located in an area unobstructed from the cell tower, such as on the roof of a building. After the BDA receives the signal, it then distributes the signal to places that would otherwise be unreachable. The BDA can increase, or amplify, the strength of a signal as it passes through, allowing the signal to stay strong even as it continues to travel further from the signal source.

Who Needs a Bi-Directional Amplifier?

When communication comes to a halt, so does business. Any company experiencing unreliable cellular or wireless service, or even “dead zones” should consider a communications system which includes a BDA. The systems experts at Harris Communications can customize a solution to meet your communication needs in order to keep communication, the lifeblood of your business, flowing.
