White paper examines neutral-host DAS deployments
Engineering white paper from The DAS Forum lays out considerations for deploying neutral-host distributed antenna systems (DAS).
A recent engineering white paper from The DAS Forum lays out considerations for deploying a neutral-host distributed antenna system (DAS). The paper addresses the breadth of design requirements for integrating a wide range of technologies on a DAS.
Key elements of DAS design and performance covered by the document include frequency bands, power outputs, signal protocols, sectors, coverage and interference, and sharing of DAS resources among multiple wireless service providers (WSPs). Other topics covered include pre-planning for DAS growth, components specification and installation, DAS network inter-dependencies, knowing the limits of DAS, and ways to re-engineer or expand DAS for design flexibility.
