The RF signal sources are distributed along the leaky feeder to optimize both spectrum use and coverage of predetermined areas in, for example, office or apartment buildings.
The following table lists examples of services that may be provided in the embodiments described in this disclosure; however, the list is not exhaustive, and provision of other services, now known or later developed, may be also be implemented through the same system, whereby the system may be said to be “future proofed”:
Cellular 700 MHz long-term evolution (LTE) data, 800 MHz voice, 1900 MHz personal communication service (PCS), 2100 MHz AWS services.
HD TV, low-power TV, 600-700 MHz high definition digital television local low power TV services.
Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz Internet access hotspot services.
Broadband Internet 5.8 GHz high speed Internet services.
Comments Off on US Patent Pending Revolutionary Signal Survey Device
RF signal strength levels (public safety, cellular, etc.…) are quickly and precisely measured and recorded. On-line access is made available to AHJ’s, building owners, and RF engineers at little to no cost.
This patent pending device was developed to help city agencies and First Responders ensure that they can communicate effectively within an enclosed environment in the event a disaster occurs. The device was engineered to be easily used, adaptable to meet all Fire Code testing requirements, and minimize costs to the responsible party. Currently installed in cooperation with city agencies- contact IBT Connect to schedule a demo and plan timeline for activation in your city.
Comments Off on IBT Connect Participates in F-CAC Firefighter Communications Work Group
IBT Connect is honored to be part of the F-CAC Firefighter Communications Work Group. This workgroup is concentrating on defining 2018 IFC Section 510 by modifying the current 2015 specifications to better fit with other codes such as NFPA and improve the practical application in the field.
The workgroup members are from a diverse background ranging from Fire Chiefs, AHJ’s, RF Engineers, and solution providers. Unique perspectives from each participant adds to the richness of the new codes and helps identify guidelines that connect the dots which insure clarity to all professionals seeking code compliance and public safety.
