Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA)
Reliable Two-Way Emergency Radio Communication Enhancement
During an emergency, reliable communication is critical. Staying informed with clear radio transmissions between first responders inside a building and emergency personnel outside the building can help prevent further injuries and save more lives.
Emergency Responders lose communications when in-building radio signals are weakened by structures such as concrete, windows, and metal. The Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) System, also known in some markets as DAS- Distributed Antenna System, is a signal boosting solution designed to enhance in-building radio frequency (RF) signal coverage for public safety radios.
Who Needs BDAs?
Any building that is identified and inspected under local ordinances and/or is requiring public safety permits.
Many facilities now require BDA installation with new or building renovation permits and certifications.
Anyplace where first responders, maintenance, and security personnel need to maintain constant two-way communications.
The BDA solution enhances two-way radio signal strength inside buildings, tunnels, and other structures.
Our Class B, Bi-Directional Amplifier Solutions are a high power, band-selective radio signal booster system that can be designed and customized to meet all public safety frequency band ranges.
In Florida, most county building codes have been amended to include a stipulation for public safety signal booster enhancement for two-way radio communication.
GoMartec regularly installs new bi-directional antenna (BDA) systems in new buildings, and we also retrofit older buildings throughout in Miami.
