Improved Emergency Communications, First Responder Communications
There are many critical phone calls in an office facility, but some are much more time-sensitive, such as emergency phone calls. Those responding to an emergency will likely rely on two-way radios to communicate with each other during a crisis in the facility. If they cannot communicate properly, the entire facility will suffer. Thankfully with DAS systems, they can communicate easily and in real-time, meaning that when problems do arise, they can address them quickly.
Cell phone DAS and public safety DAS (or ERRCS) are not mutually exclusive. Your building may need both. Some systems run parallel to each other while others converge. You should talk to an engineer to decide which type of system is best for your building. With a converged structure, all system components are in the same enclosure, while a parallel system uses separate structures.
Knowing the difference between cellular DAS and public safety DAS can help you make smart decisions for your building. Not all buildings need both types of DAS, but if you don’t get a strong cell signal in your office building, you might consider contacting Harris Communications to see what our experts can do for you.
