Specialised Two Way Radios

Two way radios can be modified to provide additional features beyond just voice messages, to make them a crucial tool in the running of your business. Not only do radios provide communication, but they enhance efficiency, safety and security. Specialised features that can be installed on your radio include noise cancelling, discrete communication, man down, lone worker, GPS tracking (Trackitt), manager override function, integrated task management systems, text messaging, caller ID, emergency call functions and automated radio alarms. For more information on this, you can read our blog ‘Make Your Radio Right For Your Business’ here. Two way radios can also be designed to withstand the environment which they will be exposed to. For example if your radio will be used in construction they can be dust-proof. Alternatively, if your radios will be used for outdoor security they can be waterproof. Whatever your needs are, Wall to Wall can provide you with a communication solution.

Additional Services and Products

Whilst we are two way radio specialists, this is not all we provide. In addition to walkie talkies, we are now providers of body cameras which are particularly useful for customer-facing businesses. If you have any questions about body cameras, you can read our FAQ blog post here. In addition to two way radios, we also provide supporting technology such as leaky feeders, Distributed Antenna Systems and Radio Frequency Over Fibre. We even provide help with applying for an OFCOM licence and training staff on the use of two way radios!

What is a Distributed Antenna System (DAS)

What is a Distributed Antenna System (DAS)

What is a Distributed Antenna System (DAS)?

A Distributed Antenna System can be the perfect solution for providing strong and reliable radio coverage and wireless connectivity in certain situations. A DAS is a network of antennas evenly distributed over a certain area, all connected by a common source. This is an alternative option to a single antenna which has a smaller area of coverage, a weaker signal and consumes more power. 

DAS has been around for many years. However, it is the result of increased demand for wireless systems within buildings, remote areas and across difficult coverage areas that has spiked the demand for this technology.

There are also two types of DAS; Outdoors Distributed Antenna System (oDAS) and In-building Distributed Antenna System. iDAS can be useful for increasing wireless signal across large areas by being placed atop of high poles and buildings such as streetlights and utility poles. iDAS on the other hand can boost wireless coverage inside larger structures such as stadiums of office headquarters.   

Advantages and disadvantages of a Distributed Antenna System (DAS)

The DAS is becoming increasingly popular as a result of its numerous advantages and applications. Whilst the Distributed Antenna Systems installation are more costly and complicated, their advantages often outweigh their disadvantages. 

Advantages of DAS

  • Increased signal coverage over a defined area
  • Multiple antennas use less power all together than a singular antenna
  • Fewer coverage holes
  • Can be used in situations where other telecommunication technologies would not be suitable
  • DAS do not need to be placed as high up as a single antenna to provide the same coverage
  • DAS overcomes the penetration and shadowing losses because a sight link is more available. This results in a reduced delay speed and a reduction in fade depths. 

Disadvantages of DAS

  • Higher cost compared to a single antenna due to additional infrastructure
  • Although the antennas can be placed lower down, the increased number of antennas can result in a greater visual impact

Distributed Antenna System Wifi

One of the less common uses for DAS is its ability to provide Wifi. Whilst it is usually internet service providers that supply a large building with Wifi, this can also be done with the use of a Distributed Antenna System.

Why do you need walkie talkie hire in London?

As the country’s capital, London is a hub of business and as a result has a dense population. This can create mobile phone signal deficiencies particularly during large events when everyone is trying to connect to 4G or use their phone signal. This can leave businesses and event organisers in London without fast and efficient communication, which can result in decreased safety, security and mismanagement. As the largest city in the UK, London is also home to large and tall buildings which can cause signal-deflection, also inhibiting communication. A solution? Walkie talkie hire in London. As radios do not use mobile signals your company or business will not be affected by either of these problems and will allow you to provide your services to the best of your ability. 

Walkie talkie hire in London with Wall to Wall Communications

Even with radio communications bypassing the need for mobile signal, the distance and obstructions in the way can also inhibit radio signal. That is why at Wall to Wall to Communications we can provide a number of solutions to allow you the coverage and signal enhancements to carry out your business across the city without any interruption. 

  1. Repeaters: Repeaters are a way of ‘repeating’ the radio signal to allow the connection to extend over larger distances. Repeaters also help when there are obstructions in the way like large buildings that radio signal cannot penetrate by creating a clear path around them.
  2. Antennas: Antennas work in partnership with repeaters and act as a directional force for signal that is being boosted by the repeaters. At Wall to Wall Communications we have a multitude of different antennas that can suit your individual signal requirements, and can be provided as part of your walkie talkie hire in London.
  3. Leaky Feeders: Leaky feeders are particularly useful in London as they are essentially antennas designed as feeder cables. Their purpose is to allow you to have a boosted signal in an area without e.g. the underground or in basements.
