In today’s business world, customers and employees are relying more and more on the ability to quickly and efficiently access data through wireless networks. If the cellular connection in your business cuts out or experiences weak spots and dead zones, your employees may not be able to send or receive critical mobile calls and texts from customers. Various industry estimates report that 80% of mobile device use occurs indoors. It’s no surprise that poor coverage in your office or building could be affecting worker productivity.
The demand for high-speed cellular and wireless connectivity has increased the need for businesses to deliver faster, more reliable data to keep up with traffic on their networks. Unfortunately, many businesses are finding that Wi-Fi networks alone are no longer meeting their needs in terms of secure and quick mobile data. It’s time to put a stop to dropped calls and poor coverage with a DAS network that will keep your employees connected throughout key locations inside your facility.
Increasingly, businesses are implementing a DAS to ensure that the 4G coverage and capacity that we all enjoy outside our place of work is available inside the workplace as well. A DAS is a network of wireless connectivity that strategically places antennas throughout an area in order to spread connection through dead zones and increase network capacity. The antennas are physically connected to a central controller and can be active or passive, indoor or outdoor.
If any of the following scenarios are true for your business, you may want to consider upgrading to a DAS:
Lack of 4G LTE connection speeds that negatively impact productivity
Slow internet connections will harm your employees’ productivity by limiting the amount of work they can accomplish. A DAS delivers customers and employees the wireless connectivity they desire by improving the efficiency and reliability of cellular coverage in-building.
You have a large or densely populated facility
If hundreds or thousands of people are simultaneously using your network for internet connection, you should consider installing a DAS for your business. A DAS ensures a more reliable wireless connection and expands the capacity of your network, which can be bogged down by high user traffic.
Your building is a LEED rated energy efficient facility with dead spots that cell sites can’t reach
Dead spots can give customers a poor image of your business’s reliability and can prevent employees from getting time-sensitive work done. The strategic placement of antennas in a DAS helps to alleviate this problem by sending a connection through dead zones and hard to reach areas of a facility.
You have a BYOD policy and encourage employee use of different devices
The landscape of business is changing and employees no longer rely on traditional computers to get the job done. Having a bring your own device (BYOD) policy encourages a “work from anywhere” setting but needs to be supported with a DAS system to accommodate different devices.
You want to improve productivity and speed via various wireless devices
Smartphones, tablets, and personal devices are rapidly being used in the workplace and on-the-go. To keep up with the demand needed as mobile data skyrockets, a DAS is a great solution to augment your network and keep up with heavy wireless traffic from a variety of devices.
You want your employees to experience the best wireless services available today
Technology is constantly evolving and our ability to stay connected across a variety of devices advances at a fast pace. It is important to keep your business and employees on the forefront of technology, especially in terms of staying connected with exceptional wireless services.
Through a DAS, your business can improve quality, performance, data speed, and accessibility for employees and customers. When you upgrade to a DAS, dead zones will be reduced and mobile data and voice capacity will improve.
