The Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI) has released revisions of an existing standard for public review: BICSI 006 Distributed Antenna System (DAS) Design and Implementation Best Practices. A distributed antenna system is a network of spatially separated antenna nodes connected to a common source via a transport medium that provides wireless service within a geographic area or structure. Signals are split among several antenna elements, separated in space so as to provide coverage over the same area as a single antenna but with reduced total power and improved reliability. BICSI 006 provides industry and service provider neutral requirements and acceptable best practices for the design and installation of a DAS.
Comments are due September 9th.
