Recreational Facility – Cellular Enhancement

RSG Telecom was contacted by a popular recreational facility facing challenges with poor cellular service throughout its premises. The facility, which hosted a range of activities including sports events, concerts, and conferences, recognized the need to provide reliable cellular connectivity to enhance visitor experience and safety.

Challenges

1. Poor Cellular Coverage: The facility suffered from dead zones and dropped calls due to inadequate cellular coverage, impacting visitor satisfaction and operational efficiency.

2. Varied Terrain: The facility encompassed diverse indoor and outdoor spaces with varying terrain, presenting challenges in ensuring uniform cellular coverage across the entire area.

3. High Capacity Requirements: With large crowds attending events and activities, the cellular network needed to support high volumes of simultaneous connections without degradation in performance.

4. Cost-Effectiveness: The solution needed to be cost-effective while delivering reliable and scalable cellular coverage to meet current and future demands.

Solutions

Our team proposed the deployment of a Cell Boosting Distributed Antenna System (DAS), a centralized network infrastructure designed to enhance cellular coverage and capacity within the facility:

1. Site Survey and Analysis:

  • Our Engineer’s conducted a comprehensive site survey to assess the facility’s cellular coverage gaps, identify hightraffic areas, and evaluate the terrain to determine optimal antenna placement.

2. DAS Design and Engineering:

  • Based on the site analysis, our Solution Specialists developed a tailored DAS solution comprising strategically placed antennas, amplifiers, and fiber-optic cabling to ensure comprehensive coverage and capacity enhancement
  • The DAS design incorporated both indoor and outdoor coverage areas, addressing the facility’s diverse layout and terrain challenges.

3. Installation and Integration:

  • RSG’s Certified Field Technicians meticulously installed and integrated the DAS components, working closely with the facility’s staff to minimize disruption to ongoing operations.
  • The installation included a combination of ceiling-mounted and outdoor antennas, connected to centralized amplifiers and signal distribution units for optimal coverage and performance.

4. Testing and Optimization:

  • Our Technician’s conducted rigorous testing and optimization of the DAS system to ensure seamless integration with existing cellular networks, minimize interference, and maximize signal quality and coverage.
  • Field measurements and signal propagation tests were performed to fine-tune the system for optimal performance across all areas of the facility.

Results

1. Improved Cellular Coverage: The DAS solution significantly improved cellular coverage throughout the facility, eliminating dead zones and ensuring reliable connectivity for visitors and staff.

2. Enhanced Visitor Experience: With improved cellular service, visitors could now enjoy uninterrupted communication, access mobile apps, and stay connected during events, enhancing their overall experience
