Westell, End-to-End Public Safety BDA Solutions
With over 20 years of manufacturing Public Safety BDA solutions and over 65,000 BDAs sold no one handles end-to-end in-building coverage solutions better. Westell provides the complete solution from the donor antenna to the indoor antenna and almost everything in between with the exception of the cable and connectors. This assures that everything works together seamlessly.
Westell donor antennas lead the industry in performance and specifications. All of our yagis feature ruggedized construction, DC grounded active element, super wide bandwidth and good F/B ratio. Our model CS03-003-430 covers both the 700 and 800MHz bands in a single antenna. We also offer VHF and UHF full band yagis that support 136-174 or 406-512Mhz in a single model. Westell’s High Isolation donor panel features wind rating of 170MPH making it ideal for our coastal markets requiring hurricane rated antennas, plus with a gain of 16dB and a F/B of over 32dB it solves issues such as high interference and poor donor signal levels.
