Signal When it Matters Most

BDA Systems

In the event of an emergency, you want to ensure that you can communicate with the help that is on the way. When the fire department, EMT’s, or police enter the building, they need to have the ability to accurately communicate with each other even in the deepest recesses of the complex. To ensure that they can properly communicate with each other, a BDA system can prove beneficial. 

By installing a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) system, you provide emergency responders with the ability to communicate with each other via radio in typical dead zones. With an NFPA-compliant and FCC-approved BDA and DAS system in your building, you can ensure that everyone has the signal strength to communicate no matter the situation.

BDA Installation

For newer buildings, select townships require the installation of a BDA system to boost the signal strength for first responders coming to the scene of an emergency. Public safety is at the forefront of the reasons why even if your township does not require a bi-directional amplifier (BDA) system, the enhancement of your in-building radio frequency provides multiple advantages in the event of an emergency. 

Network Drops can provide you with and install a fully-equipped BDA system for your building. We ensure that when your new BDA system gets installed, it meets the UL-listed system requirements and is ready for use. 

BDA System Cost

Now that you are considering the installation of a BDA system, you’ll want to know what the end cost will be. Typically, BDA systems and the installation of a DAS system are relatively inexpensive per square foot. Network Drops’ experts will work with you to give you a clear understanding of cost right from the very beginning. The reason being is that BDA systems only have to increase the in-building radio frequency of one type. In comparison, a distributed antenna system (DAS) has to deal with multiple carriers. The number of signals that your system has to provide enhancements for directly impacts the overall cost of your BDA or DAS system.

DAS System in Buildings

While your BDA system provides emergency responders with a boosted signal, you don’t want to leave your employees and any potential visitors in a dead zone in the case of an emergency—this where the installation of a distributed antenna system (DAS) in your building comes into play. 

When your building completes its DAS system installation, a series of mounted antennas are placed around your facility to increase the frequency of the carrier signals and provide maximum coverage throughout the building. 

DAS System Installation

When you complete the installation of your new DAS system you can rest assured that people will have the ability to make and receive calls throughout your building. This packaged turnkey solution for your buildings provides maximum cellular coverage for any team’s needs in a crisis situation.

DAS System Design

To ensure that your DAS system has maximum coverage, you need to consider the overall design of your next turnkey solution carefully. Our licensed and certified technicians to help provide UL listed systems for your building. 

In addition to NFPA-compliant and FCC-approved BDA systems, Network Drops can also help your business with the following services:


What Are BDA Systems?

The Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) System is a signal-boosting turnkey solution designed to enhance radio frequency (RF) signal coverage for public safety radios. 

What is the Difference Between BDA and DAS?

While BDA and DAS systems work in similar ways, their target audience is entirely different. The BDA systems work to boost the signals for first responders and emergency services. The DAS systems work in much the same way but for civilian signals. 

What is BDA Testing?

BDA testing is routine maintenance checks conducted periodically to ensure that your BDA system still offers coverage to the entire building. This test isn’t required to be performed by the original installer and can be conducted by any licensed and certified technician. 

What is a DAS Network?A distributed antenna system consists of a network of mounted nodes that boost a given building’s wireless signal strength. It increases the existing carrier waves and allows for complete coverage throughout the building. DAS systems feature design elements that take the needs of your employees and visitors in mind; you want to ensure that their wireless signals are strong throughout the building, especially in any potential emergencies.
