2 types of DAS Installations:
- Passive DAS and;
- Active DAS
What is a Passive DAS?
Passive Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) amplify signal from a “donor” location–usually on the roof of the building–and rebroadcast the signal inside the building. The donor signal is amplified by a bi-directional repeater, which is connected to a network of passive components, including coaxial cable, splitters, couplers, and antennas.
Passive DAS systems typically use passive components like coaxial cable, splitters, and diplexers to distribute signal, and Unlike active DAS, they use bi-directional amplifiers to rebroadcast signal from the macro cellular network using a donor signal on the roof.
What is Active DAS?
Active DAS involves carrier approval for uninterrupted cellular signal to be set up at your site. The differences extend to cost and deployment time – Active DAS can take months to a year to set up, and is much pricier to boot – but in this case, you get what you pay for.
Active DAS systems often use fiber optic cable to distribute signal between a centralized signal source and “remote nodes” placed around a building. The signal source is typically a “head-end” that combines signals from multiple carriers, which each need to provide their own signal source to the system, typically via their own fiber backhaul.
