BDA Amplifiers, BDA Installation, Bi-Directional Amplifiers, and BDA Testing in Atlanta, GA
The many governments areas, university campuses, high-rises, schools, arenas and other buildings in Atlanta all have one thing in common – dead spots where essential communication for first responders is lost. In fact, more than 98% of all buildings have some sort of dead spots, mostly in tunnels, stairwells, pump rooms, underground garages and more. For this reason, municipalities require the use of Bi-Directional Amplifiers (BDA). BDAs boost signals for first responder communication, without interference, through power outages and potential disasters. Professional engineering and installation of BDAs is essential for code compliance along with the reliable safety and security of building occupants.
