How RF Repeaters Work With DAS
30 December 2013 - 20:06, by , in Blog, 2 comments

Radio frequency (RF) repeaters work hand in hand with the closest DAS (Distributed Antenna System) to improve the cellular coverage in an area. RF repeaters take a low power signal from a cell phone and exponentially strengthen the signal. The DAS receives signals from local transceiver stations in greater number which magnifies the signals sent and received. Repeaters used in conjunction with a linking Distributed Antenna System that is directed at the base station antenna, repeater technology and a broadcast antenna. This method saves a lot of energy and is less expensive than other telecommunication connection technology.

What is a distributed antenna system?

A distributed antenna system is a network of spatially separated antenna nodes which are connected to a single source through a transport medium providing wireless service for a particular area (or a building). DAS are exceptional for cell coverage inside of buildings thanks to attached RF repeaters which boost the signal from multiple low powered antennae instead of one high power antenna. These low power antennas also reduce the amount of radiation given off by the cellular tower which complies with regulations concerning radiation on an inhabited area. Less energy is wasted when the antennae are divided and major cellular providers United States are now using these technologies to improve coverage for their users.
