Using a combination of antennas strategically placed in areas of weak coverage, we bring a strong signal into a building. From the outside to an amplifier and off to the areas needed.
Every BDA system installation is unique and faces challenges that pertain to that specific Authority Having Jurisdiction. Prior to the design phase, our FCC certified engineers communicates with the Fire Marshall's office about the specific needs and request to ensure the process is kicked off on the right foot.
Using a dedicated RF Modeling Software called iBwave, we design a D.A.S. system tailored to the building. The design will be modeled with a Heat Map design which shows predicted antenna coverage throughout and takes into account all building materials. It's this step that dictates the ultimate success of the project and it is considered one of the most crucial. This model is also included in our AHJ package permit set presented to the plan reviewers.
A site plan lays out all cable routes and antenna locations. Each is strategically placed for best results.
The site plan is then modeled to predict what the signal strength will be within the building.
The system layout is a high level view of the project and is presented to the cabling team.
Throughout the project we install BDA Systems Certified antennas, splitters and couplers to route signal to areas that need it most.
All of our equipment is designed to work with the correct frequencies that the local FIRE, EMS and POLICE departments use for all types of communications.
In most counties and cities, the cabling used throughout the building must be mechanically protected via EMT conduit or a metal clad "armored" type.
Based on the plan reviewers request we comply with all physical requirements to protect the integrity of the system.
Our amplifiers are designed, installed and configured to meet all strict fire codes on a national, state and local level. All equipment meets the specific UL rating required to maintain integrity in case of emergency.
The correct power and configuration settings are critical to ensuring a functioning system on the overall network.
We perform all critical functions of a system installation in-house. Beginning with engineering & design, installation, permitting, commissioning, testing and inspections.
Our in-house engineering & design team produces the plans and processes permitting.
Our dedicated crew professionally manages all equipment installation per code and plans.
Our FCC cerified engineers power the system and configure to maintain performance and regulatory power constraints.
