When COMO Hotels and Resorts opens its first U.S. property in Miami next month, RoamBoost from RoamingAround will be there. Metropolitan by COMO is a 74-room luxury boutique hotel that occupies an original 1930s building located in the heart of the city’s famous Art Deco district. To ensure guest satisfaction and life protection, the Singapore-based hotel company has integrated two business-critical solutions: RoamBoost Cellular Signal Enhancement and RoamBoost First Responder. Using a Distributive Antenna System (DAS), RoamBoost enhances in-building cellular coverage for all mobile carriers and radio signal coverage for first-responder transceivers.
RoamBoost is designed to defeat complex challenges that hotels face today by enhancing the local geography’s coverage inside the building. The solution uses a network of DAS nodes that are placed strategically throughout the building to address signal strength issues in corridors, common areas and meeting spaces. With the dual solution in place at Metropolitan by COMO, RoamBoost is proactively removing any obstacles that could potentially interfere with mobile calls, data transactions and radio communications for first responders.
RoamBoost Supporting First-Responders
Public safety personnel and first responders such as police, fire and EMS teams, rely on their radio transceivers to effectively fulfill their duties and ensure the safety of the public and themselves. However, radio signals that are transmitted and easily accessible outside of buildings are often prevented from entering and propagating indoors due to building materials that block or weaken them. This creates a significant threat to the ability of first responders to communicate effectively with each other and, therefore, the effective fulfillment of their challenging duty.
RoamBoost First Responder uses a DAS network to make certain that the existing radio signals that are present outside of the buildings are brought in and propagated seamlessly throughout the building even in the case of a fire so that first responders can continue to serve and save lives.
