Wireless Services

The potential benefits of smartphones, iPads, and all things wireless are life-changing. From increased productivity and efficiency in the corporate world, to increases in patient safety and quality in healthcare, wireless devices and applications are driving generally happier customers everywhere.

Smartphone and wireless data usage is more than doubling every year with 70% of physicians and executives using smartphones that leverage 3G/4G high-speed data services. Meanwhile, new building codes, such as ICC IFC ’09 and NFPA 72 210, are mandating approved radio coverage for first responders.

But buildings, where we spend 80% of our time, present special challenges for wireless connectivity and often times have no more than 20% coverage for devices such as cell phones and tablets. High-rises and buildings with large footprints or below ground features can present unique challenges to deploying reliable wireless coverage. Additionally, modern construction techniques and materials used to achieve LEED certifications can block or degrade wireless signals, causing disruptions in connectivity – leading to dropped calls and lost data connections.

Introducing InnerWireless4G

Black Box Network Services brings wireless coverage indoors through an in-building, wireless distributed antenna system (DAS) called InnerWireless4G designed to not only the wireless services we use but with mission-critical service quality.

Leveraging best-in-class DAS solutions with unique know-how, InnerWireless4G can deliver virtually any wireless service, across facility- or campus-wide deployment.

Enabling Key Wireless Services

Black Box Network Services focuses on delivering wireless that meets your enterprise needs. As a system integrator, most InnerWireless4G systems are deployed as a neutral host, delivering services from multiple wireless service providers (WSPs), including AT&T and Verizon, public safety and more.

When deploying InnerWireless4G, your building is typically wired with a combination of fiber optics/coaxial cabling and broadband antennas. Cabling connections are made to a head-end, located in a single, common area, and small remotes located in IDF closets. These wireless services are then connected to InnerWireless4G in the common area using a bi-directional amplifier, microcell, or BTS provided by the WSP and the services are distributed throughout the facility via the antennas that radiate each and every wireless service.

Enabling key wireless services is the first step in mission-critical wireless. Black Box Network Services engineers coverage and optimized capacity to ensure unsurpassed wireless performance across the enterprise.
