SOLiD seeks to make buildings safer by ensuring universal indoor public safety radio coverage.

SOLiD Technologies has been invited to present at the “Signal Boosters Roundtable” on Thursday, February 23 from 11:15 to 12:30 during the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) at the Las Vegas Convention Center. SOLiD, whose best-in-class multi-service Distributed Antenna System (DAS) – ALLIANCE™ – supports commercial wireless, public safety, private two-way radio and paging on a single platform, will explore how to make buildings safer by removing the obstacles to advance public safety indoor wireless coverage initiatives.

The presentation will demonstrate through case study examples – including SOLiD’s deployment at the Bellevue Collection in Bellevue, WA – that the technology already exists to achieve universal indoor coverage for public safety radio service. The solution, which SOLiD recently announced during a panel at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), is the formation of a Public Safety Shared DAS Coalition whose objective is to align the interests of Local Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), Building Owners, Public Safety and the Wireless Industry.

“The goal of making buildings safer must include ensuring that police, fire, EMS and first responder radios work indoors as they do outside of the building,” said Seth Buechley, President at SOLiD Technologies. “A key obstacle is that Public Safety is viewed as a ‘hitchhiker’ when it comes to DAS deployments because it typically lacks the ability to fully fund the project. SOLiD, through the Public Safety Shared DAS Coalition, advocates a requirement that DAS networks accommodate public safety radio frequencies and a sharing model whereby Public Safety becomes a ‘carpooler’ that participates on the DAS with other commercial cellular providers.”

Greg Glenn, a noted Public Safety expert on RF Engineering and DAS infrastructure solutions at TriPower will co-present with SOLiD.
