Web Portal on Enhancing First-Responder In-Building Radio Coverage Launches

Connectivity Wireless Solutions Launches publicsafetydas.org Web Portal at APCO 2013

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) - The web portal at http://www.publicsafetydas.org was created to provide building owners and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) with an array of educational resources to facilitate the understanding of and best practices for deploying mission-critical in-building radio coverage. The portal is a one-stop resource that addresses everything from coverage mandates to acceptance testing a public safety Distributed Antenna System (DAS).

"The purpose of publicsafetydas.org is to disseminate quality information and foster the exchange of ideas, experience and expertise," said Rob Benson, publicsafetydas.org editor.

In addition to showcasing leading DAS product offerings, the portal addresses industry best practices for deploying a DAS by discussing the national codes and fundamentals of in-building radio coverage systems. "AHJ's understand the critical importance of robust in-building radio coverage, but just how to implement the new codes driving this coverage requirement may not be so easily understood," Bryce Bregen, VP of Sales and Marketing at Connectivity Wireless Solutions, said. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Fire Code (IFC) specify coverage requirements, however, "IFC and NFPA code leave a lot of decisions in the hands of the AHJ," Bregen said. "We hope AHJs will find content at publicsafetydas.org to be a valuable resource to help them implement the code."

To keep AHJs informed on best practices and market trends, publicsafetydas.org publishes contributions from industry experts, product vendors, service providers, regulators and industry consultants. All articles are reviewed for accuracy prior to publication. Users will also appreciate how the portal aggregates white papers, case studies, and links to additional resources.
