Monitoring DAS Networks: Carriers Cannot Afford Downtime
Over the past 20 years, the cellular industry has grown exponentially. What used to essentially be a captive market for the subscriber has now become fiercely competitive. Indeed, customers currently show almost no loyalty to any particular carrier. Instead, they demand reliable coverage. If their current provider has downtime, subscribers simply take their telephone number and leave for another provider. As Distributed Antenna Networks (DAS) technology has grown, so has the need to keep wireless networks up and running - all the time. This can only be accomplished by utilizing sophisticated monitoring tools.
