"That means we do not have
a horse in the race and are free
to be neutral arbiters of both
technology platform and neutral
host infrastructure power sharing
plans," Yazdani says."Owning
neutral infrastructure creates conﬂicts for carrier organizations and
it seems that they prefer to deal
with us instead. Fast DAS coordinates the design and development
of these systems with wireless
service providers (WSP) including Verizon and AT&T, thereby
avoiding one of the major barriers
faced by other DAS providers.
"There are a lot of DAS companies looking for creative ways
to eliminate WSP from the design
and install of DAS altogether, but
that's not us; we do carrier coordination as a matter of course,"
Yazdani continues. "We work with
carriers to develop the right design, which ensures a better system
for all stakeholders that will likely
not be shut down by the carrier
The company's clients include

trusts and other property owners.
Its systems can be found in mixeduse commercial and multifamily
residential buildings throughout
the Mid-Atlantic region.
The advantages of an N-DAS
network include licensed spectrum, minimum interference,
optimal bandwidth, capacity and
performance, lowest total cost of
ownership and high availability,
reliability and security. N-DAS
networks have a single common
infrastructure shared by multiple carriers, which makes them
less expensive to implement and
maintain than enterprise Wi-Fi,
Yazdani notes. Unlike Wi-Fi,
N-DAS doesn't need to be upgraded to receive the beneﬁts of
carrier technology upgrades. A
user doesn't have to change access
points or add any infrastructure to gain 5G, when it arrives.
DAS is simply a mode for signal
transport. Modulation technology
- such as small cell or base station
to user equipment - happens behind a DAS, so a proper N-DAS
is built future ready.
"WSP participation is essential
to our success," he adds. "On our
systems WSPs monitor network
performance metrics, fund signal
