Coverage Testing

Assess current service levels for compliance & performance.

How often do you wish that you could have better cell coverage? We all get dropped calls, but evaluating the current coverage in your building needs to be an objective exercise. We can help by performing an on-site analysis of the networks you want to enhance. By recording the existing signal strength, signal quality and closest cell towers, our team can provide reports displaying your current coverage.

In addition to cellular testing, we specialize in First Responder System testing to assess signal level compliance with International Fire Code Section 510 and NFPA 72 Chapter 24.

Some of the networks we can analyze include:

  • Public Safety Coverage (VHF/UHF/700/800 MHz systems)
  • Two-Way Radios (private and security)
  • Wireless Carriers (AT&T, Sprint, TMobile and Verizon)

After the data is collected, we will assemble a report summary for you and your leadership team to review. Based on these results, we will formulate a plan to meet your objectives.

Design

Ensure that your in-building wireless systems are optimized.

A preliminary wireless system design is the most important step to eliminate
unnecessary costs and to increase your system’s return on investment. We can create a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for both cellular and first responder systems that will maximize your coverage through the amplification of nearby signals.

By utilizing advanced RF propagation tools, such as IBWave, our design team will produce predictive heat maps, bill of materials, scope of work document and installation guides for your installation team.

HetNet Wireless takes a complex, technical field and delivers a straightforward solution with clear directives. Our designs will keep your first responder teams ready and your cell coverage strong.

Wireless system designs (i.e., Cellular, First Responder, WiFi, etc.) can be based on the following criteria:

  • Coverage area
  • Signal strength
  • Pilot dominance

Monitoring

Monitor your systems and complete required annual Coverage Testing.

Systems must be checked regularly for radio interference and efficiency. We can monitor and test your systems upon request or annually to ensure that your systems comply with the governing ordinances. We provide support for both first responder and wireless systems, and can remotely monitor the parameters of your system in order to ensure that they are operating correctly.

Depending on state enforcement, all building projects with permits after 2012 are required to comply with International Fire Code Section 510 and NFPA 72 Chapter 24, which are designed to ensure adequate indoor radio coverage for firefighters and other public-safety personnel during emergency response.

We specialize in annual coverage testing of first responder systems and will work with your local fire department to certify that your building has adequate signal for emergency responders.

As a professional service, we provide:

  • Annual system testing to meet IFC compliance
  • Radio systems monitoring and maintenance
  • FCC signal booster registration

Our services will secure your building, protect you and your team, and assist first responders in the case of an emergency.
