Now, you may be wondering - how does a strong cellular signal help you protect your data? Think about it like this: imagine you're a superhero in one of those big blockbuster movies. Your responsibility is to protect the people in your city. Thankfully, your city has some protection built-in to its infrastructure, like gates and security guards. If those are defeated, though, it's all down to you. And if you're sick, or otherwise unable to help...then your city is left defenseless.
Similarly, and a little more realistically, think about how data is stored. Much of your data is likely stored in the cloud and accessed using WiFi or an Ethernet connection...but what if the Internet goes down? Without technology in place to ensure the Internet doesn't go down in your facility, your organization would not be able to access important information and, even worse, it could be vulnerable to a security breach. Don't leave your network defenseless.
There are many ways you can arm your network against potential threats. Let's look at adding an additional layer of redundancy with a passive distributed antenna system (DAS). Also known as a cell phone signal booster, a passive DAS can capture the cellular signal from nearby cell towers and route to a cellular booster. The booster amplifies the signal and redistributes it throughout the area using smaller indoor antennas - signal power can be increased up to 32 times.
With a passive DAS installed, you can achieve improved cellular connectivity and enhanced Internet redundancy, all without compromising the design of your building. It can be up and running in a matter of days at a fraction of the cost of other solutions. Don't let your organization fall victim to a data breach. Be the superhero with a back-up plan and consider installing a passive DAS.
