Why Need BDA?

Bi-Directional amplifiers (BDAs) are signal boosters required by law in many localities so first responders can stay in constant contact throughout any facility in an emergency situation. BDAs are often part of a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that extends the range of two-way radios in any facility where reception is poor.

Why a BDA System is Essential for Public Safety Communications?

During an emergency, reliable communication is critical. Staying informed with clear radio transmissions between first responders inside a building and emergency personnel outside the building can help prevent further injuries and save more lives.

Emergency Responders lose communications when in-building radio signals are weakened by structures such as concrete, windows, and metal. The Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) System, also known in some markets as DAS- Distributed Antenna System, is a signal boosting solution designed to enhance in-building radio frequency (RF) signal coverage for public safety radios.

Bi-Directional Amplifiers Facts

BDAs are amplifiers/repeaters available in a variety of gain and power options that boost and distribute a signal covering various frequencies.It’s common in cement and steel structures to have poor reception areas such as basements, stairways, tunnels, parking garages or any isolated area where wireless signals do not penetrate.BDAs installed for first responders to communicate and worker safety to work in all extreme conditions.

Bi-Directional Amplifiers (BDA)

Any building requiring public safety permits, and/or that is identified and inspected under local ordinances.Many localities now require BDA installation with new or building renovation permits and certifications.Government buildings, school campuses, sports arenas, tunnels/mining operations, public venues, distribution centers, hospitals, high-rise buildings, office complexes, warehouses, and many more.Anyplace where first responders, maintenance and security personnel need to maintain constant two-way communications
