Optical Telecom designs, installs and supports DAS installations in Airport facilities.
What is a DAS?
According to the DAS Forum, a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a network of spatially separated antenna nodes connected to a common source via a transport medium that provides wireless service within a geographic area or structure.
DAS for Airport Facilities
Airports pose an interesting set of challenges for wireless service. Buildings are geographically dispersed over a large area, numerous businesses are housed within the aiport facilities, each with unique data and voice communication needs, vast numbers of visitors pass through the facility daily and there are also significant public safety personnel.
In this complex situation, DAS provides an excellent solution to the rigorous requirements of all constituents. Optical Telecom is experienced in designing, installing and maintaining DAS at airports across the US.
In 2009, over 50 million visitors passed through DFW Airport and over 60,000 employees work on-site. The demand for reliable wireless communications throughout the 5 terminals, 2 hotels and numerous on-site buildings spread over 29.8 square miles is the reason the DFW Airport chose a DAS installation.
Optical Telecom has been part of the DAS team at DFW Airport since 2003 and has worked on numerous projects within the airport as it has continued to serve as the world's 3rd largest airport (based on operations).
