Many schools are being built to new standards that make them more resistant to tornadoes. The large amounts of concrete and steel used in these constructions can leave a school with very little cellular signal or two-way radio signal inside the school building. Luckily, this problem can be solved with Bi-Directional Amplifiers (BDAs) or Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) that take cellular or radio signal from outside the building and distribute that signal through the school building.
With concern over violence in schools growing, many schools feel that enabling their students & teachers to use their mobile phones inside the school is increasingly important. It is also important to ensure that the interior of your school offers radio coverage to police, fire, and EMS who may enter the building in an emergency.
