    Passive DAS

Passive DAS systems typically use passive components like coaxial cable, splitters, and diplexers to distribute signal, and Unlike active DAS, they use bi-directional amplifiers to rebroadcast signal from the macro cellular network using a donor signal on the roof.

There are limitations to the reach of passive DAS solutions. Because they use coax cable to distribute signal, signal loss is higher than with active DAS.  The further away the antennas are from the amplifier, the higher the signal loss. The signal loss results in lower downlink output power.

But the advantages of passive DAS solutions are considerable. In particular, they are considerably cheaper than active DAS. Because they typically rebroadcast the macro network’s signal, there is less need for carrier approval and coordination. In fact, if the amplifier systems are classified as “consumer” boosters by the FCC, they can be installed without any pre-approval or coordination with carriers. This means that there is no need for lengthy extra bureaucracy, and deployment times can be as quick as a few weeks.

Whether active, hybrid or passive DAS is the right choice for your building depends entirely on your circumstances. The coverage area required, the design of the building, and the budget and timescale for the project, all affect your decision.

Office Space

Surecall Passive DAS System

An electrical design firm had poor cell reception and needed a Passive DAS system to provide cellular coverage throughout their design space. The solution was to implement a two system Surecall Force 5 deployment.


System 1 System 2

Apartment Complex

Apartment Complex Installation

Four story apartment complex needed cellular coverage on 1st and 3rd floors. Design required four WilsonPro 70 Plus Signal Boosters.


The design for a 75,000 square foot, four story hotel required one WilsonPro 4000 on each floor with 16 dome antennas to provide the needed coverage and throughput. The WilsonPro 4000 was selected due to its unique design which includes four bi-directional amplifiers or boosters packaged into a single chassis.

WilsonPro 4000The WilsonPro 4000 passive distributed antenna system is a wall or rack mounted, multi-amplifier cell booster that incorporate four separate signal amplifiers feeding multiple indoor antennas. Designed to provide enhanced in-building cellular coverage for all commercial spaces, including hospitals, hotels, warehouses and offices, the WilsonPro 4000 amplifies weak cell signals to provide reliable voice and data coverage–including 4G – to inside spaces where signals may not penetrate. With new eXtended Dynamic Range (XDR) technology, the amplifier never shuts off due to a strong outside signal or changes in outside signal strength, another reason to choose the WilsonPro 4000.

The design for an 11,000 square foot home required two WilsonPro 70 Plus Cellular Boosters for the Passive DAS system. Panel antennas were mounted above the ceiling; thus, the aesthetic of this high end home were preserved.
