Distributed Antenna Systems: ACTI Briefing Note

Thursday, October 11, 2012


Although students, faculty, and staff expect the voice and data capabilities of their mobile devices to simply work everywhere, there are significant technical and financial challenges to making this a reality in most campus environments.This briefing note from the ACTI Communication, Collaboration, and Mobility Working Group provides an overview of distributed antenna system (DAS) solutions for in-building wireless coverage for cellular voice services on higher education campuses. It:

  • Describes what DAS is,
  • Highlights some non-DAS alternatives, and
  • Provides useful advice to campuses looking to buy and fund a DAS solution.

The paper ends with a brief look at the future of indoor cellular coverage.
