Unlocking Better Coverage: The Essentials of Cellular EnhancementRead Story
by Alexander Goge
“Travelers increasingly rely on their cell phones for both business and personal use. In-room landline telephone use is a thing of the past. A weak cellular signal means business travelers cannot connect with their colleagues and clients on their cell phones. That’s not to mention the number of internal services that rely on cell phones like administration and housekeeping.”
— excerpted from Hotel Technology
Discerning guests expect flawless connectivity as a part of their hotel experience. Poor cellular connectivity simply isn’t an option for any hotel trying to provide five-star service to its guests. Implementing a passive DAS system – aka a cell phone repeater system – is often the most cost-effective, timely and efficient solution. A little bit of education here: an active DAS system creates its own signal and is a costly system which has to be duplicated for every carrier. A passive DAS captures existing signals using rooftop antennas, amplifies those signals, and then distributes the boosted signals inside the building or complex. This repeater system can be up and running in a matter of days at a fraction of the cost of an active DAS. What’s more, passive DAS are carrier agnostic. Whether your guests or staff use major carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint, or smaller regional carriers, they get the same amplified signal.
