A communications upgrade is being undertaken across all five terminals of Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airport as part of new critical communications infrastructure to support public safety and homeland security.
As one of the busiest airports in the world, DFW Airport requires a system that not only provides public safety coverage and access at all times, but also has the flexibility and scalability to meet the airport’s existing and future requirements. Dali Wireless was chosen to design and install an all-digital distributed antenna system (DAS) to provide coverage and access throughout the DFW terminals for public safety. This is to provide first responders and other emergency services personnel clear, secure, uninterrupted communications critical during emergency situations.
The deployment at DFW Airport will cover an area of over 12,000,000 square feet and enable a greater reach without signal degradation and noise interference. In addition, the deployment configuration can cater to any topology – star, daisy-chained and hybrid, and support long fibre runs over a single fibre between the headend and the remotes. This means the base station resources can be centralised.
The system also enables DFW Airport to easily adapt to changing requirements, including FirstNet, P25 Phase I & II, narrowband and broadband public safety.
