The Uvalde school shooting is a tragic reminder of the importance of two-way radio coverage. By investing in a two-way radio system, you can help to ensure that your community is prepared for the next emergency.
But what if you don’t have coverage? The answer is DAS.
How a Distributed Antenna System Provides Radio Coverage in Schools
A distributed antenna system (DAS) is a network of antennas and amplifiers that is used to improve radio coverage in a large area. DAS systems are commonly used in schools to provide reliable radio coverage for teachers, staff, and students.
DAS systems work by taking the radio signal from a nearby cell tower and distributing it throughout the school building. This ensures that there is strong radio coverage in all areas of the building, even in areas that are typically difficult to get good reception, such as basements, stairwells, and gymnasiums.
DAS systems offer a number of benefits for schools, including:
If you are a school administrator, you may be considering installing a DAS system in your school. There are a number of factors to consider when making this decision, such as the size of your school, the number of students and staff, and the budget you have available.
If you are interested in learning more about DAS systems for schools, there are a number of resources available online. You can also contact a DAS system provider to discuss your specific needs.
