This Webinar is designed for people who want to learn about the new approaches to In-Building Communications Systems. The primary focus will be on the carrier interface in the passive DAS.  We will discuss a variety of approaches from both the component and integrated standpoint with special attention to the impact of Passive Intermodulation (PIM) which results from additional frequency deployment within the DAS.  The main areas to be covered will include:

  • Passive DAS review 
  • Active DAS review 
  • Hybrid DAS systems 
  • Carrier Interface at the Head-End 
  • PIM: Impact on performance and how to control 
  •  Microlab's Standard Solution

Webinar Q&A

Below are questions that were recieved during the webinar.

Can Microlab offer its DAS components for indoor and outdoor DAS deployments?

Yes, Microlab’s components and Combiner Box are used in both indoor and outdoor DAS deployments

Can the multi-carrier Combiner Box solution be used in both Active and Passive DAS deployments?

Yes, Microlab’s components and Combiner Box are used in both active and passive DAS systems.

If I don’t use Microlab's Combiner Box for multi-carrier requirements, what are my best options?

Some of Microlab’s customers ask us to provide them a “generic” Combiner Box which they customize for their DAS system requirements.  Other Microlab customers ask us to provide DAS components(without the Combiner Box) and prefer to build their own multi-carrier head-end. A growing number prefer to use our Combiner Box and ask us to customize it for their DAS requirements.

What is the difference between Neutral-Host and Multi-Carrier?

Multi-carrier refers to a DAS deployment that has multiple carrier RF signals coming into the DAS system.  Neutral Host usually refers to DAS environment where the DAS system is owned by a third  party.  In some cases, the third party requires a multi-carrier capability.  So sometimes people use “Neutral Host” to mean multi-carrier.
