Does Your Building Comply with First Responder Codes for Communication Systems?

In an emergency, it is vital for first responders to effectively communicate with each other. If a building has poor reception, rescue efforts can be delayed, plus first responders can be put at higher risk. Therefore, an effective communication system needs to be installed that adheres to first responder codes. In this article, we will review what those codes are to help you determine if your building is compliant. Read through the guide below .

Colleges Use Wireless Technologies to Keep the Campus Safe

In many emergency situations, cell phone towers become completely overwhelmed by callers within minutes of an incident, bringing communications to a standstill. What other systems are available to inform emergency medical services and law enforcement when response time and situational awareness can mean all the difference? Enhanced Two-Way Radios Provide Options in a Crisis Many colleges and universities are increasing safety by putting radios in the hands of their security staff. Streamlined radios such .

Outdoor Festivals Rely on Two-Way Radio Rentals

Two-way radio rentals are vital to the safety and security of a large outdoor festival. When thousands of people gather in a specific, tightly controlled location, they can easily overwhelm the nearest cell phone tower, especially if an emergency happens. We’ve all seen the tragic stories of cars plowing into parade goers, and crazed pop-music fans trampling each other, but most outdoor festival issues are more mundane: grandparents suffering from heat exhaustion, parents scouting .

Extending Wireless Two-Way Radio Range with Bi-Directional Amplifiers | BearCom

One of the biggest challenges of using two-way radios is moving outside of radio range and having your conversation cut off. Radio signals travel in highly specific ways. If you disrupt those principles, then your conversation will fade or end altogether. To avoid poor coverage and dead zones, you need a way to boost wireless signals. We will review how to extend wireless radio range with Bi-Directional Amplifiers, or BDAs. Read all about it .

Concrete and steel buildings often block wireless signals, leading to communication dead-zones. .

FCC Requirements for In-Building Wireless Solutions

It is always important to have a way to communicate efficiently and effectively throughout any part of a facility. To sustain communications in any conditions, many buildings install amplifiers (signal boosters) that strengthen in-building wireless coverage. However, these amplifiers must be carefully deployed to follow FCC installation rules designed to prevent interference and meet compliance regulations. In this article, the team at BearCom will review what role the FCC plays in regulating communications and .
