Using CATV Infrastructure as the Backbone for In-building Cellular Coverage and Capacity, Wireless connections are notorious for performing poorly inside buildings. Thick walls, window coatings and building materials used in structural design all weaken incoming cellular signals, resulting often in bad reception and, inevitably, complaints by users. The solution to this problem lies in moving the antennas indoors, by deploying a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) which provides more capacity and delivers optimal service levels.
However installing a DAS system is extremely disruptive to the normal daily activities, since it involves running cables throughout the building, drilling and installing antennas inside ceilings. Alvarion, a world leader in 4G wireless broadband solutions, has harnessed its TrueActive™ DAS technology to use existing Cable TV infrastructure inside the building, efficiently delivering wireless coverage and capacity.
