Four Signs that you need a cellular DAS rather than a WiFi System

 Speed in the interconnected world

As our world grows increasingly interconnected, internet connection has become a given. Little afterthought gets provided to devices that emit or relay internet access over the long run, particularly three to five years after installation.

But, with such dependence on connectivity, ensuring a strong, safe, and reliable signal is pivotal for all types of devices and users, from businesses, hotels, and general enterprises, relative to each industry’s needs. 

 

Speed matching  

Wi-Fi connectivity is an essential component of any modern business or enterprise, which ranges from industrial, commercial, and manufacturing operations to agriculture. Adopting Cellular DAS systems allows businesses to benefit from a speed-matched set-up. 

It’s pivotal, as the ever-going development of wireless devices renders a generational gap between different technologies, which can reduce or limit the speed at which Wi-Fi signals get emitted to the end-user. 

 

 Security concerns 

Security concerns are a crucial issue for any organization, particularly with the progressively invasive, complicated, and discreet cybersecurity threats, both software and hardware components of routers become exposed to vulnerabilities and exploits. 

Office Wi-Fi systems, enterprise Wi-Fi systems, and even hotel guest Wi-Fi systems are openly exposed to security risks as Wi-Fi technology becomes outdated, compromising your business in multiple ways. 

Upgrading your current set-up to a Cellular DAS reduces the risks of potentially becoming the victim of competitive hacking, digital theft, or unknowingly exposing clients to risks. 

 

Connectivity issues

Standardized Wi-Fi systems allow seamless connectivity through a range of devices and across multiple generations, yet this standard is not ideal; as devices age and the existing infrastructure remains static, many challenges arise from both software and hardware perspectives. 

This is where Cellular Distributed Antenna Systems, or Cellular DAS, comes into play as a challenger to traditional and more static means of internet connectivity, by providing a network access through an array of antennas capable of beaming high-speed internet connectivity through radio signals. 

 

Physical constraints 

Physical constraints are crucial in creating barriers to connectivity, given the variety of factors that come into play, ranging from the size of a building, construction materials, the number of users present within the area and the quality of Wi-Fi infrastructure.

No all-in-one or universal solution can be applied. However, a comprehensive approach can allow for a long-term and sustainable solution to counteract these physical barriers through a dedicated cellular distributed antenna system.

A DAS network can provide a holistic solution that matches your businesses’ connectivity needs by capitalizing on the existing cellular network to optimize your connectivity and take your business development strategy to the next level

Such a system can provide a smart solution for businesses and institutions looking to improve their existing network infrastructure, while upholding the long-term needs and expectations of a digital age.
