The Mac Park Distributed Antenna System (DAS) project consisted of installation and support of a DAS project in a high rise building in New South Wales. Mac Park is a large scale commercial high-rise building that hosts a number of tenants across its multiple floors. This building required an Active DAS system due to the size of the building. Madison Technologies was engaged by a leading electrical contractor to complete this project.
Building projects need to run seamlessly, and it is important to make sure each element is installed without impacting the costs and time of the overall project. During the project, the lead Carrier requested that Madison Technologies change the originally approved DAS design, to accommodate equipment from a alternate vendor, while maintaining the MCF2018 standard. This posed a potential risk of project delay, budget blow outs.
The Madison Technologies team worked diligently to design and install an alternate MCF2018 compliant solution to meet customer and Carrier requirements on time and within budget. An Active DAS solution was engineered to ensure that all areas of the large building would have sufficient coverage. An Active DAS includes active equipment that has a power source, allowing the signals in the building to amplify and therefore reach a larger coverage footprint. Madison Technologies used a combination of directional coupler splitters, network combiners, fibre distribution frames, connectors, cable loads and antennas for this Active DAS solution.
This DAS system was implemented in the reduced time-frame, and met the needs and requirements of the client and lead Carrier. The solution remained cost effective as it was designed intentionally for large scale deployment. The client was immediately able to reap the benefits of having high speed, reliable and secure coverage from all providers throughout their building. They also saw immediate improvements to in-building connectivity amongst smart devices.
