Densification Demands DAS

A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) helps boost cellular coverage in heavily trafficked locations like airports, stadiums, entertainment venues, campuses, convention centers and transportation hubs.

As the largest independent provider of indoor DAS in the U.S., Boingo offers industry-leading, in-house network design and deep relationships with major carriers. Boingo can manage your connected consumer experience and network from end-to-end.

Why Build a DAS?

  • Improves wireless network access for visitors and staff, regardless of which carrier they use.
  • Boosts signal strength and increases network capacity for voice and data users alike.
  • Preserves internal IT and business resources for strategic initiatives and core competencies.
  • Supports in-building public safety communications.

Why Choose Boingo for DAS?

Simply put, our DAS experience is unmatched. We’re the largest provider of indoor DAS in the U.S., with more than 15 years of experience and deep relationships with the Tier 1 carriers.

  • #1 indoor DAS provider in the U.S.
  • Strategic partnerships with Tier 1 wireless carriers for DAS and Wi-Fi offload; maximum carrier participation
  • Neutral host solution supports all wireless standards and protocols
  • Proven track record designing, building and operating wireless networks in high-traffic venues
  • Invest heavily in R&D to ensure networks are designed to meet data demands of the future

We’re Switzerland.

Every one of your visitors is important to you. We don’t believe some guests should have a better experience just because of the carrier they choose. Boingo’s “neutral host” approach to DAS creates an even playing field for all carriers — so all of your guests enjoy the same great cellular experience.

Small Cell is the Next Big Thing

A small cell is just like the name implies: it’s a mini cell site that augments cellular service in a venue. Small Cells can be used instead of DAS in some locations, or even side-by-side with DAS, depending on the venue and what the best solution is. Small Cells can be femtocells, picocells or microcells; we’ll call them Small Cells here to keep things simple.

Why Small Cell?

Compared to DAS, Small Cells are inexpensive and easy to deploy – think weeks instead of months.
Small Cells can use Ethernet backhaul through the enterprise network, rather than requiring the dedicated backhaul of a DAS.
Small Cells excel at filling gaps in coverage in specific areas of a building.

Award-Winning Wi-Fi

Did you know 1 in 3 Millennials (age 18-34) believe that the internet is as important as air, food and shelter? 75% of Americans say that a week without Wi-Fi would leave them grumpier than a week without coffee. Keeping consumers connected to the people and things they love isn’t optional – they expect it from your venue. That’s where Boingo comes in.

Boingo Means Wi-Fi

Boingo is the undisputed worldwide leader in Wi-Fi. Heck, even our NASDAQ ticker symbol is WIFI! A wireless industry thought leader with more than 15 years experience, Boingo has the unique expertise needed to provide a best-in-class, end-to-end solution for your venue.

We Make Wi-Fi Smart

Keeping consumers connected is a lot more complex than throwing up a couple of APs and calling it a day. Large venues like airports, stadiums, entertainment venues, campuses and convention centers have unique demands when it comes to Wi-Fi. That’s why every Wi-Fi network we design, build and operate is S.M.A.R.T.

Secure
SMART Networks provide access to enterprise-grade secure, encrypted networks using Passpoint technology.
Multi-Platform
Because smartphones, tablets and laptops have different data consumption profiles, SMART Networks optimize bandwidth based on usage and device type.
Analytics-Driven
SMART Networks enable analytics that deliver valuable business intelligence and customer insight.
Responsive
Because the demand on Wi-Fi networks can vary widely, SMART Networks continually evaluate the level of service being provided to adapt to demand on the fly.
