Distributed Antenna Systems

About DAS

A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a network of antennas that sends and receives cellular signals on a carrier’s licensed frequencies, thereby improving voice and data connectivity for end-users.

There are several different categories of DAS – Boost Pro Systems design and install Active, Hybrid and Passive DAS solutions. Each system has varying capacity and coverage, as well as associated costs and deployment times. We’ve summarised this below:

Active DAS

An Active DAS means that the equipment requires a power source in order to operate.

Buildings larger than 500,000 sq ft, with a large user base, would usually require an Active DAS. This is the most powerful system available, but the most costly – deployment times can take several months, due to requiring network approval as well as complex design and installation requirements.   

Typical Active DAS deployments include high-capacity venues such as football stadiums and airports, where the best possible service is needed. Required components for signal distribution include fibre optic or ethernet cabling.  

Passive DAS

The lowest cost solution, a Passive DAS can be installed in a matter of weeks. This solution is perfect for smaller buildings with fewer users (e.g. offices), or buildings in urban areas with a strong outdoor signal. Less complex than Active DAS, a Passive DAS uses passive RF components including coaxial cable, couplers and splitters, greatly reducing installation costs and times.

Hybrid DAS

More powerful than a passive DAS, this hybrid system is perfect for buildings with less complex, lower capacity requirements than its Active counterpart. Installation times and costs are lower, and network approval is not required, as it extends the network from the closest mast. Hybrid systems use a combination of fibre optic/ethernet and coaxial cabling.
