DAS And BDA Antennas

Multi-polarized antennas for distributed antenna systems (DAS) and bidirectional amplifiers (BDA)

DAS and DBA antennas help expand network coverage in high-usage locations such as sports stadiums and high-usage situations such as public safety emergencies. Distributed antenna systems (DAS) are deployed where space is limited, cell towers cannot be installed, and small cells won’t provide adequate coverage. Bidirectional amplifiers (BDAs) support reliable two-way radio communications in challenging locations such as parking garages, underground tunnels, and stairwells. Standard antennas are susceptible to obstruction-related disruptions that cause reflectivity, multi-path, absorption and phasing. By contract, multi-polarized antennas from MP Antenna are designed to reduce signal degradation and provide consistent voice and data communications. See the product table and additional sections below for more information.

Cellular BDA and DAS Antennas

Cellular BDA and DAS antennas boost reception for devices such as mobile phones that operate on cellular carrier networks. The cellular BDA antennas that are used in cell phone signal booster systems can be deployed in hotels to support simultaneous calling and in hospitals to eliminate dead zones. Full-coverage DAS antennas may be used to provide complete coverage for a single carrier.

Outdoor DAS Antennas

Outdoor DAS antennas (ODAS) help improve wireless coverage at outdoor venues such as ski resorts, open-air concerts, and outdoor sporting events. Compared to indoor DAS (IDAS) installations, ODAS has higher power requirements and introduces greater complexity. Outdoor DAS antennas use remote radio heads (RRHs) in weatherproof enclosures.

VHF UHF BDA and DAS Antennas

VHF UHF BDA and DAS antennas are designed to improve performance in the very high frequency (VHF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) bands. Omnidirectional antennas that combine VHF and UHF coverage help to minimize cable runs and support system integration. Indoor antennas for these communications may be ceiling mounted.      

Other DAS and BDA Antennas

MP Antenna designs and manufacturers many types of antennas for both indoor and outdoor deployments. For example, active DAS antennas are used in systems that require a power source to operate. By contrast, passive DAS antennas generally don’t need cables and instead consist of simple bi-directional amplifiers.
