CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
With growing concern for public safety globally, the need for reliable, ubiquitous, 24/7 wireless network availability is critical. First responders must have instant access to the network for vital emergency communications. Citizens need reliable access to commercial mobile services to contact the authorities in emergency situations. During an emergency, the network infrastructure must provide a reliably clear signal throughout the building or group of buildings. Whether deployed by government agencies or private building owners, a public safety network must provide coverage, reliability and redundancy to deliver fail-safe performance. The network must also be able to adapt to future technology advancements easily and cost-effectively.
CommScope has over four decades of experience delivering connectivity infrastructure. We offer a broad portfolio of public safety network solutions combined with the expertise and resources to design, deploy and service them. Our systems have been approved by authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) and other regulatory agencies. They have been used successfully by first responders in many of the world’s largest airports, railway and metro stations and tunnels, government buildings, hospitals, hotels, manufacturing and energy production facilities—anywhere there is a critical need for public safety communications.
CommScope offers multiple public safety solutions that economically scale according to the size of the building being covered, its the public safety requirements.
As public safety signal source, the software-defined Public Safety Bi-directional Amplifier (BDA) is a platform that enables tailored, scalable and cost-efficient implementations of Class-A and Class-B public safety bi-directional amplifiers. Frequency bands and features can be configured in software to adapt to the specific project needs. The Public Safety Bi-directional Amplifier has been designed for public safety from the ground up:
For small and medium-size buildings, typically up to 100,000-250,000 square feet, the Public Safety BDA and donor antenna is connected directly to a set of output antennas placed throughout the building. CommScope provides a full range of indoor antennas and related passive components designed to support public safety frequencies.
In smaller buildings, the Public Safety Bi-directional Amplifier directly feeds several in-building antennas.
For larger buildings and multi-building campuses, the Public Safety Bi-directional Amplifier is a signal source to CommScope’s ERA digital distributed antenna system, provisioned as a public safety DAS. As an active, digital DAS, ERA ensures the distribution of public safety RF signals throughout buildings and campuses of any size. ERA currently provides public safety and commercial services in venues ranging from office buildings up to NFL stadiums and major airports. ERA offers features created specifically for public safety needs:
CommScope also provides a range of passive products and cabling for a complete public safety network solution.
In larger buildings and campuses, the Public Safety Bi-directional Amplifier feeds an ERA digital DAS which can distribute the signal across an extremely wide area such as a stadium complex, airport or university campus.
Our systems comply with standards set by authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) and regulatory agencies.
Solutions cost-effectively serve buildings ranging from moderate-sized office buildings to stadiums and airports.
CommScope has over four decades of experience building public safety communications infrastructure, globally.
