RFI DAS team was brought into this greenfield project to design, integrate, install and commission an active communications solution into a newly constructed hospital in Western Australia.

It is currently the only “high power” active fibre repeater system in Australia that can provide 2300TDD today.

Working with Optus, the RFI DAS team was brought into this greenfield project to design, integrate, install and commission an active communications solution into a newly constructed hospital in Western Australia. The In-building coverage (IBC) is designed to be shared with all carriers and to provide optimum coverage for both hospital staff and the public.

The new hospital was one of the largest building project ever undertaken by the Government of Western Australia and included a 783-bed facility with 6400 rooms, covering 32 hectares a cost of $2 billion. The facilities incorporate technological innovations such as wi-fi-controlled “robots” that deliver catering to wards, and mobile computer workstations on wheels to assist staff with dispensing of medications. The biggest challenge the RFI team faced was the rapid deployment schedule while also keeping the install clean and non-intrusive in a completely the aesthetic condition in a completely finished building. The final fit-out took place after the hospital construction was completed, and had to be clinically clean ready for acceptance of patients immediately after deployment – and we finished a month ahead of schedule cables to the main switchboard, no different than other electrical components on site. The RFI designed DAS system operates across all 7 bands, covering 147,000m2 of floor space and 28,000m2 of car parks occupying six different buildings.

Quick Facts

  • Project: Design, install and commission a  hybrid DAS system that combines high power active RF repeater equipment with passive distribution.
  • Customer: Major Hospital in Western Australia
  • RFI Role: Design and Install DAS system
  • Job Overview: RFI provided an active and passive equipment (Hybrid) solution that utilises mobile operator approved technology and components. RFI faced a rapid deployment schedule while also keeping the install clean and non-intrusive in an aesthetic condition in a completely finished building. The greenfield project was designed, supplied, installed and tested in four months.
  • Product Overview: RFI designed a DAS system that operates across all 7 bands, covering 147,000m2 of floor space and 28,000m2 of floor car parks occupying six different buildings. The system was delivered clinically clean ready for the acceptance of patients. The installation came in one month ahead of schedule. It provided technology to cover all 7 bands and is currently the only “high power” active fibre repeater system in Australia that can provide 2300TDD today.
