DISTRIBUTION ANTENNA SYSTEMS (DAS)
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) or commonly known as In Building Coverage (IBC) provides mobile phone signal coverage in large buildings. Digital communication is vital for everyday home and business life, residential buildings and office buildings must offer full mobile signal coverage to tenants. It is not an optional amenity anymore but a necessity.
End to End Connectivity
Property owners need a reliable in-building distributed antenna system – DAS or also referred to as IBC (in-building coverage). Fixtel offers full DAS solutions from design and installation to ongoing management. It’s an end-to-end system covering mobile phone reception and internet connectivity. This system is suitable for high-traffic and high-occupancy buildings.
Cel-fi Mobile Boosters
The Cel-Fi GO is 30 times more powerful than a simple antenna solution. It is the only Telstra-approved mobile signal booster. The Cel-Fi GO is a small box that uses an outdoor antenna to pick up the mobile network signal. It boosts the signal and transmits using an indoor antenna. With the Cel-Fi GO, you can increase the mobile signal over an area of 900 m2 and allow more than 20 devices to be connected. This makes it an ideal solution not just for residential users but also for commercial office spaces struggling with a low signal power that can solve communication problems with one simple device.

DAS Network Capacity
For new builds and existing fit-outs, the first step for a Distributed antenna system is strategic planning. The successful implementation of a DAS network should be based on the end goal. Coverage versus capacity is the key to capacity coverage needs and future-proofing. Coverage and capacity is the metric driver for DAS. Das Types include 5G, active, passive, hybrid and digital. Fixtel starts by evaluating system needs based on coverage and capacity. The DAS type is recommended based on the need.
Coverage – Signal saturation throughout the building.
Capacity – The system can simultaneously support the number of users and data via bandwidth.
