LEED and DAS are hands down the top two trends of today’s buildings. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system designed by the United States Green Building Council, and it assesses the building’s environmental performance and impact, and encourages the property development market to transform and evolve towards the sustainable design. A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a form of in-building wireless system, a network of antenna nodes connected to provide wireless service within a […]
Many building owners and facility managers have been investing thickly on several technologies including smart systems, sensors, etc. under a label of Smart Buildings. Some may call it Building Automations, others name it Building Intelligence – but now there’s a new crown in town: “BIoT” Short nomenclature for ‘Building Internet of Things’, BIoT is a future solution that has deep promises. It is said to subdue all current imperfections with the Smart Buildings, and as it becomes a ‘mature […]
The FCC is opening a new 3.5GHz band with rules to ensure spectrum sharing between different users. The band will be thinly licensed and the initiative is called the “Citizens Broadband Radio Service” – but what sorts of networks can we expect in this band?
Getting DAS and any other form of supplementary In Building Wireless (IBW) solutions installed right at the aperture of the construction phase is, in one word, smart. Last week we covered this topic and discussed why implementing DAS at the architectural stage is not only a smart move, but a crucial one in the day and age of 5G and IoT. Similarly, there are also several requirements of the Public Safety DAS, which are mandatory elements to adapt during construction […]
Building owners, venue owners, and large operators and service providers have been using DAS (Distributed Antenna System) for over two decades now in an attempt to enhance the network coverage in their facilities. Especially in buildings where the traditional macrocell approach doesn’t do the job of providing reliable (or any) wireless signals indoors. Mobile networks have been upgrading from 2G to 3G to LTE, and now we’re waiting for 5G to arrive here with a gusto. WIth this shift, the […]
Renting a place is not only about having a roof over our heads. Not any more. Today’s tenants look for top-notch amenities, patios and pools, around-the-clock security, roof terraces, gymnasiums. And property developers are fighting the war to put out the properties with anything that adds an extra oomph in the property’s appeal. But why is it that property managers, owners and builders are still not seeing the massive opportunity of In-Building-Wireless (IBW)?
Today, we’re excited to announce that we have changed our name from DAS Worldwide to Wave Wireless! The name change is a result of an extensive rebranding effort designed to mirror the success and transformation of our company.
It’s no news that the evolution in the mobile industry has been dramatic by every measure, and the prospects of growth for 2017 is not looking any different. Consumer attitudes around mobile devices are unique and vital, and the mobile smartphone has become a singular most indispensable item across all geographies and demographics. It has become an ‘enabler’ of all things connectivity – letting the doors wide open for innovative and groundbreaking technologies – some we’ve seen and many are […]
Where is the ‘path to 5G’ leading to? What can we expect of 5G and what can it really accomplish? To what stretch will it be better than LTE? 12 billion plus devices are already connected to the Internet of Things. And the fifth generation of wireless technology is expected to connect many more billions. By 2020, that number could surge to 30 billion, says Simona Jankowski of Goldman Sachs Research. The future of IoT is being led by the […]
It is obligatory for many venues – large and small – to ready all infrastructure and systems needed for the first responders to communicate seamlessly over their radio equipments. Building owners and managers want to ensure that they can communicate clearly within their jurisdictions. Most often, this requires the deployment of DAS (Distributed Antenna System) that expand the outdoor public safety coverage to the interiors of the buildings in a way that no internal section of the building or facility […]
We’ve all been witnessing the way today’s enterprise workforce has been changing and evolving beyond imaginations over the recent years. We’ve all been a part of it! Part of the crowd that’s getting more crowded by the day. Number of connected devices are through the roof, and the type of applications that run on these devices are getting increasingly bandwidth-hungry.
