Principle of indoor coverage design
You need to:
Know the Noise figure of your active or passive DAS, this will set the UL limit
Know the loss of the passive DAS / PPC of the active DAS to simulate the DL
Know the s/n on the UL and DL for the mobile service voice/data
Know the UL/DL air noise floor
Know the target level on UL/DL
Know the environment, and future plans

Indoor Cellular Example
Looks nice, but the heavy Elevator shaft will shield the signal

So an alternative is to split the signal from the ROU into two antennas

The elevatores are measured to have 35dB attenuation, so if ve can keep a
signal of 50dB outside the Elevator, the coverage should be OK !

This will cost 3dB on the link budget, reduce the coverage to :
Voice from 45m to 37m, GPRS CS2 from 35m to 28m

Antenna split keeps good service,
and voice coverage in elevators

Indoor Cellular Tips
Keep most of the traffic in line of sight to the antennas
Lower MS UL power, less UL i/f leakining out
Less DL signal due to DL power control, less i/f
leaking out
High Orthogonality for PCS update.

DAS are implemented to serve the most important users / buildings
Performance should be supervised
Errors should be detected, or even better - predicted
Errors will happen, in both active and passive DAS
DAS Errors should be resolved ASAP, using DAS system intelligence
Easy monitoring via PC will bring down , out of service time to a minimum
Faster installation = more revenue
All DAS is a compromise, no one ideal solution for all buildings, therefore DAS
need to be flexible
Easy to extend, sectorise
Only low power BTS is used, cutting the BSS cost

Indoor system selection
Opti-Link is ideal HW for most IB solution
Select the right approach for the right solution (the right shoes for the route)
Both passive and active can be the perfect way to go, select the right approach for
the specific design.
Only one thing is for sure:
The future is bringing more need for wireless high speed data, meaning
higher demands for indoor coverage and capacity

Operators plan their macro rollout for 5-7 years ahead, surely their indoor systems
should also be future proof.

The main part (80%) are originated inside buildings, therefore good indoor
performance is the key to success !
