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.

You may obtain an electronic copy to review from Jeff Silviera (jsilveira@bicsi.org).  Send your comments to Jeff with optional copy to psa@ansi.org
