EDMONTON, Oct. 10, 2018 /CNW/ - Westcan Advanced Communications Solutions has entered into a contract with the City of Edmonton for the design, replacement, installation, and implementation of a public safety bidirectional amplifier (BDA), and a distributed antenna system (DAS). These systems will provide extended coverage within existing buildings, and below grade light rail transit (LRT) tunnels and platforms within the City of Edmonton.
In addition to the design and implementation, the scope of the contract includes the provision, ongoing maintenance, technical and non-technical support, and enhanced services of in-building and below-grade radio coverage distributed antenna systems (DAS).
