Entropia guarantees high speed, flawless coverage no matter the users' location. From an office stairwell to an underground tunnel, our innovative in-building wireless technology has the power to keep everyone connected.
Ensuring the reliability of your employee’s two-way radio will increase both their efficiency and their safety.
Our two-way radios are robust enough to work in the harshest of environments. And when they are boosted with Entropia’s additional technology to increase their signal range they become the ultimate communication solution.
In certain situations, you may need additional signal power. For example, if your employees work in ports surrounded by industrial infrastructure or guard an underground space, the thick building materials (usually concrete or steel walls) can act as a barrier and block the signal. This will almost definitely delay communications and in some instances, prevent the user from transmitting and receiving information completely.
The additional technology we provide to ensure reliable connectivity in such environments consists of repeaters to boost the signal range with DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems). This provides a solution when poor connectivity is a problem. It can be deployed to the smallest apartment blocks to the largest manufacturing buildings.
DAS technology amplifies our digital network in buildings and underground spaces through the strategic placement of antennas – typically on roof tops. This boosts the signal to improve the performance of the communication device allowing the user to send and receive voice and data communications.
Signal source: The Distributed Antenna System distributes the signal from one of our nearby masts. We have over 410 masts throughout the Netherlands and Belgium.
Distribution system: The signal is then distributed throughout the building or underground space by one of four methods. Active, passive, digital and hybrid (recommended for the larger buildings). Here at Entropia, we mainly focus on deploying active and passive as they provide the best infrastructure-intensive solutions.
Active: Uses fibre optic or ethernet cables. Active DAS converts the radio frequencies from the Entropia mast (signal source) into a signal for distribution.
Passive: Uses coaxial cable, splitters, tapers, and couplers. Passive DAS distributes the signal within a building.
Hybrid: Uses fibre optic cables and coaxial cables. The analog radio frequency signal from the signal source is converted into a digital signal for distribution.
Digital. This operates according to the Common Public Radio Interface allowing a band unit to communicate with the DAS master unit and through to the remote units without the need to convert to an analog radio frequency interface.
Entropia applies their extensive digital communication experience to design in-door coverage systems to meet the specific needs
of their customers.
Creating and implementing custom in-door coverage systems will ensure optimal installation to deliver superior performance. Depending on the location we will ensure that all personnel in need of mission critical communications are equipped with the technology to keep them connected to their teams and their control room.
As leaders in our field, we will provide the optimum radio coverage solution. This includes the design, engineering, installation and all project related management tasks. In addition, we will monitor the system’s performance to keep your organisation moving forward and your employees safe.
The signal source for all Distributed Antenna Systems is the most important factor. As we own our own fully managed licenced network, we can guarantee the quality and reliability of the original signal source for complete peace of mind.
