Das & Bda Field Testing

A Comprehensive Site Inspection & Coverage Testing

A comprehensive site inspection and coverage testing will help ensure full compliance of cellular coverage within commercial buildings. This critical process serves multiple purposes: it helps identify the necessity for installing a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to enhance coverage, and it establishes a performance benchmark both before and after DAS implementation. At TELECO, conducting DAS site surveys is a fundamental protocol that precedes the design phase of in-building Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

Site Inspection and Coverage Testing Procedures

Our meticulous site inspection and coverage testing procedures are executed by TELECO’s team of Radio Frequency and DAS experts. During these evaluations, we meticulously pinpoint and document crucial details, including weak signal levels and interference. Armed with this comprehensive dataset, in conjunction with quality-of-service measurements gathered from the external network, our team generates an in-depth analysis and recommendation report. This report will also provide areas of optimization through the implementation of a DAS.

Das & Bda Field Testing

Evaluation of Propagation Variables

Our seasoned group of RF and DAS professionals will conduct on-site assessments, taking into account the following RF signal and local regulatory considerations:
Das Field Testing

Spectrum analysis of essential frequencies.

Das Field Testing

Identification and prioritization of areas of concern.

Das Field Testing

Analysis of donor signal sources, including radio and cell towers.

Das Field Testing

Unamplified Radio Frequency (RF) measurements, covering RF noise floor and donor signal strength.

Das Field Testing

Assessment of RF inhibitors, such as terrain, topography, and structural elements.

Das Field Testing

Verification of compliance with fire safety and building code requirements for Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement Systems (ERCES).

Das Field Testing

Confirmation of FCC license holder(s) for P25 public safety radio network retransmission agreements.

Das Field Testing

Acquisition of a letter of compliance for the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) if the in-building site signal coverage meets acceptable standards and code requirements.

WHY TELECO DAS FIELD TESTING

A thorough site review combined with coverage testing is essential to guarantee your commercial buildings possess the required internal Emergency Responder and Carrier coverage. This process validates whether there’s a necessity for a BDA or DAS to improve mission-critical coverage. Additionally, it sets a standard for comparing performance before and after setting up DAS. At TELECO, conducting DAS site assessments is a routine step we take before creating in-building Distributed Antenna Systems, ensuring that you achieve both regulatory compliance and optimal coverage efficiency.

Site inspection Our experienced team of RF and DAS experts will conduct an on-site evaluation, focusing on both RF signal aspects and local regulatory factors:

  • Examining variables for propagation.
  • Conducting frequency spectrum assessments.
  • Pinpointing and ranking areas that need attention.
  • Investigating signal sources such as radio and cellular towers.
  • Making raw Radio Frequency (RF) readings, which cover RF noise baseline and the strength of donor signals.
  • Reviewing obstacles to RF, like the natural landscape and built structures.
  • Guaranteeing adherence to fire safety standards and building codes for ERCES.
  • Determining FCC license holder(s) related to P25 public safety radio network broadcast agreements.
  • Obtaining an approval letter from AHJ when the internal site signal coverage meets standards and is code-compliant.
