Digital Coverage and Traffic Management

Product Overview

idDAS is a robust in-building and outdoor coverage solution, offering a cost-effective and energy-efficient method to delivering maximum coverage and capacity to many environments.

idDAS provides a coverage solution that is right-sized for the application and can be dynamically changed depending on demand. No more hardwiring of capacity to provision for peak demand. No more building a network where chunks of capacity remain unused a large proportion of the time.

idDAS offers a scalable digital platform that provides longevity for operators and infrastructure providers by offering simple upgrades to meet new connectivity requirements rather than a rip out and replace approach.

The idDAS digital platform offers further cost-savings by supporting cellular, public safety and IP backhaul communications on the same infrastructure, without interference.


idDAS also brings a range of other benefits:

  • State-of-the-art, patented noise management techniques
  • Flexible plug-and-play approach
  • Inherent MIMO capability
  • Native and direct CPRI routing
  • Supports C-RAN and V-RAN architectures

Fan Mile

Cobham Wireless partners with Vodafone and Telefónica to deploy world’s first intelligent digital DAS system covering Berlin’s Fan Mile

The deployment, launched on New Year’s Eve 2015, enables Vodafone and Telefónica customers to access high-bandwidth 4G (LTE) services on the thoroughfare for the first time, in addition to 3G (UMTS).

On its first day of full operation, the system successfully provided 3G and 4G coverage to the world’s largest New Year’s Eve event, with over one million visitors attending a party on the Fan Mile. Later in the year, idDAS will enable reliable cellular coverage for hundreds of thousands of visitors attending events at the venue including the screening of the 2016 UEFA European Championship.

Stretching through the centre of Berlin to the Brandenburg Gate, the Fan Mile has traditionally proved an extremely challenging environment for the provision of reliable cellular coverage and capacity, due to the strict planning regulations prohibiting the use of visible cellular equipment combined with the huge number of attendees at large events.
