When looking into improving your in-building communication, you'll probably come across the term bi-directional amplifier or BDA. If you’re experiencing issues such as dead zones or spotty reception, you know how frustrating poor coverage can be, causing both lost productivity and even safety issues.
The BDA is a tool used to boost wireless signals, typically in large buildings like campuses, hospitals, hotels, or manufacturing plants, and they help your two-way radios and smartphones avoid dropping calls or receiving spotty coverage.
In short, a bi-directional amplifier is a device that locates a wireless signal, amplifies it, and then rebroadcasts it throughout your building. This blog provides more insight into how this actually happens, and next steps to take if you think a BDA might solve your communications problems.
