Description

More than 70% of data used over cell phones are from indoor, but less than 30% of indoor areas in U.S. has decent cell phone coverage. DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) or indoor cellular networks fill in these coverage gaps. Just think of the potential of growth of DAS projects. 
In every DAS projects, a lot of people from outside the DAS industry have to get involved; they are architects, building construction team, IT, facilities management team, project managers – just to name a few. There is quite a bit of learning curve to the whole engineering and business side of DAS. So, most of these people navigate through these projects somewhat blindly or limited knowledge. Worse is there is really no vendor-neutral on-line or on-site courses available for people outside DAS.  Why vendor neutral? Because most webinar, or DAS tutorials are made by equipment manufacturers, and it just tells the audience how great their product is. 
*** Decision makers and project managers deserve to know DAS from a vendor-neutral perspective.***  
This course is a vendor-neutral overview of DAS. My goal is to give anyone who is interested in in-building cellular network or DAS, a pretty comprehensive look into the field in a short few hours.  Once you go through this course, you will be able to manage DAS projects and interface with all aspects of resources for DAS. You will be able to assess the feasibility of DAS for your organization, and guide your organization into and through a DAS project.    
No complicated RF theory or formula! In simple diagrams and slides, I will show you how a DAS come together.
In less than 4 hours, you will learn about:
•Basic DAS terminologies, •Core architectures of 3 types of DAS, •Principal rules and regulations of Public Safety DAS, •Typical processes involved in DAS implementations, •Types and names of companies involved in the industry, •Business & funding models, •Budget and bid process, and •DAS project management milestones.If you are in any of the following businesses, this course is for you:
•IT or Information Technology•Commercial construction or architecture•Building safety or facilities management•Project Management OR•Even starting out in DAS industryImagine learning about a whole new field in 1/2 a day. Now lets start with the project, and make that happen. Be a DAS-hero 🙂
