Ensuring Employee and Visitor Emergency Communications Through DAS

Phil Leaf, Distributed Antenna Solutions Architect, Parallel

In this presentation, we'll explore strategies for using distributed antenna systems (DAS) to ensure adequate connectivity for operations and safety. Specifically, we’ll discuss how DAS can be used to bridge WiFi and cellular macro (outdoor) coverage as well as how institutions are justifying the capital investment from both a safety and employee/visitor/student satisfaction. Using examples, we'll also dive into specifics associated with quantifying cellular and code-mandated public safety coverage, navigate carrier negotiations, recognize how high-efficiency construction materials impact coverage and what you need to know about 5G.

About Phil Leaf: Phil is Parallel’s Distributed Antenna Solutions Architect responsible for overseeing the DAS team from assessment to delivery. Phil has a keen knowledge of the complexities of wireless systems and is curious for better DAS solutions from large stadiums to small office buildings.
