DAS stands for Distributed Antenna System. Basically any type of radio application is carried over a DAS, and yes, that includes bandwidth hungry Wi-Fi networks.
Fast DAS, is focused on delivering custom DAS solutions. Integrators large and small come to us to get answers to their most difficult RF engineering questions. Spending hundreds of thousands or even millions on a DAS without maintaining it is just simply not a defensible option. Let us help you.
We love a challenging problem so don't hesitate to reach out to us. You can trust us to help you out of a tight spot. We are keen on building partnerships of trust with integrators and OEMs large and small across the nation so we can quickly mobilize resources practically anywhere in the country to get a job done.
Fast DAS was conceived in the simple principle that optimal Signal to Interference Noise Ratio (SINR) delivers the highest levels of channel utilization in the air interface. We call this clear RF and it means your in band noise levels are minimal. To do this Fast DAS aims to tightly regulate power from sector to sector. This balance is particularly delicate at sector seams. Spending millions on a DAS without maintaining it is just simply not an option.
The Bits/Hz formula is significant because it translates into Bits/Cost. Hz cost money, everyone knows that, and thus revenue optimization and network optimization are one and the same. If you've paid for the spectrum license, invested in the infrastructure, built out the network all with a focus on your spectrum strategy, then you really need to pay attention to this fact.
The approach of tomorrow is all about fine tuning your DASs SINR. With DAS moving toward all LTE models we understand the capacity drivers. Signal to one sector is interference to another. Inter-Cell Interference Correction (ICIC) and Self-Optimizing/Organizing Networks (SON) aren't enough to make up the capacity losses of a poorly designed system. RF management is extremely important to proper operation and future upgrades. Modulation Code Scheme (MCS) is mapped to SINR, so essentially every bit of interference acts to reduce your capacity. Not only will we analyze and troubleshoot your current design; we will guarantee the right performance results each and every time.
Go with Fast DAS, because its always cheaper to get it done right the first time. Fast DAS isn't a "general mills IT" company. DAS is the focus of our business, and we do it best, with less overhead, and then pass the savings directly to the customer. Quality is not a catch phrase nor is it an after thought, because with us quality is built into everything we do. Continual improvement of process and people is a part of our culture. With us you will consistently get:
We are engineers who focus on low noise RF solutions and will stand by our products and services with quality and service guarantees. We can do all of this because we are focused on RF Engineering and eliminate all of the overheads associated with maintaining a large and costly sales, marketing, and media development force. You get highly skilled and knowledgeable engineering served up with a continuing focus on improving the customer experience through our quality and service delivery.
Is your network LTE-3GPP Release 10, LTE-Advanced ready?! With the explosion in the number of consumer mobile devices and an insatiable consumer appetite for bandwidth hungry apps, mobile networks are being stretched ever thinner. Capacity drivers have Carrier Operators scrambling to find ways to off-load their network traffic.
Carrier aggregation has been specified by 3GPP as the method for addressing the wireless industry’s requirement for greater spectrum utilization and faster data delivery. Recognizing the looming spectrum shortage and the need to boost LTE speeds, operators on a global scale are shifting gears to ensure their LTE networks will be compatible with LTE-3GPP Release 10, LTE-Advanced. What does this mean for Operators and is this built into your DAS stratagem.?
Relationships of trust are extraordinary important in this industry and we get it. We go into a project with the intent and hope that our clients might consider retaining us to maintain and performance manage their DAS after a fantastic roll-out experience as well. Fast DAS has learned to scale the DAS Network Management System (NMS) endeavor. We can essentially investigate alarms, pin point anomalies and issue trouble tickets remotely, troubleshoot/ configure/ or reconfigure onsite, then recommend modifications to improve performance, which come with our quality guarantees and some of the smartest most experienced minds in RF science and quality systems engineering.
We bid, negotiate, execute, optimize, and close out your projects with diligence, professionalism, and speed. Don’t lose customers because you partnered with a general mills IT company. Any RF network problem you have we can help you troubleshoot and remedy. We will give you your options and the data behind our recommendations as well as next steps.
Fast DAS wants to help you. We are here to serve you. So if you:
The industry is moving towards all LTE models, mainly because it is the most spectral efficient technology. It's capabilities to carry bits/hz has everything to do with it's modulation which has FEC built in. There are SON and ICIC features that build on this concept and our position is that IMS will grow to take QoS to the next level. What are your thoughts? Join the discussion on our blog page!

One stop, DAS shop!
Do not be fooled by fast talking, slick "sales engineers"; who'll wear smart suits, buy your lunch, but don't truly understand what it is they are trying to sell you. You'll end up with a boiler plate solution you didn't want and don't need. If your gut is telling you that is what's happening right now trust YOUR instincts!
