idDAS provides infrastructure to revolutionise emergency service provision worldwide
Chesham, UK - Cobham Wireless, a global leader in the
provision of advanced wireless coverage and mobile communication
systems, has announced that its leading cellular digital DAS
(Distributed Antenna System) solution idDAS is now being made
available for public safety communications. This will increase the
dynamism of first responder systems and enable significant
cost-savings for facilities managers already investing in signal
The public safety enhancement to idDAS was unveiled at Critical
Communications World, Amsterdam, this week and will be made
available worldwide in Q4 2016.
idDAS has already been used in prestigious large-scale cellular
projects to provide dynamic capacity across areas with sporadic yet
high-capacity cellular demands, such as event spaces and multi-use
venues. The ability to share capacity with nearby facilities as and
when it is required means facilities managers and owners can
significantly lower the OPEX costs associated with coverage
enhancement systems. In addition, this next generation DAS system
will support both legacy public safety services and LTE services,
offering the opportunity to provide wide bandwidth services to
Expanding this usage to public safety provides further
cost-savings and opens up the possibility of reserving
high-capacity bandwidth for emergency service use. These
frequencies can then be used for next generation public safety
applications such as facial recognition technology, video and data
transfer and advanced site mapping.
"Bringing idDAS to the public safety communications market opens
up a new world of opportunities for first responder agencies," said
Rami Hasarchi, VP - Coverage solutions, Cobham Wireless. "Providing
additional bandwidth for first responder services enables the
development of a raft of next generation emergency service
communication technology, while minimising the OPEX costs
associated with high-bandwidth emergency service coverage
