SIDNEY, Neb. (August 10, 2016) Pierson Wireless Corp. and Cabela’s are pleased to announce the completion of a new distributed antenna system for Building 2 of the Cabela’s World Headquarters in Sidney, Neb.
Seamless and reliable wireless coverage is essential to business operations for Cabela’s. To ensure employees, executives and visitors have the necessary wireless coverage to experience clear, uninterrupted voice calls and high speed data, Cabela’s engaged Pierson Wireless to design and install a distributed antenna system, commonly referred to as a DAS.
Wireless coverage is typically provided by a network of cell towers owned and operated by each of the wireless carriers. This worked well when cell phones were primarily used to make calls while traveling on roadways. Today however, cell phones do so much more. “Cell phones today need to work everywhere,” stated Scott Kamrath, Executive Director at Pierson Wireless. “The focus of our business at Pierson Wireless is to help customers improve their wireless coverage in buildings that are poorly covered by the carrier networks. We were happy to be able to help Cabela’s on this project.”
The Cabela’s Headquarters DAS now has over 30 antennas that are used to improve wireless coverage throughout the newly constructed building 2 on the Cabela’s campus. Shortly after the DAS was activated, employees were required to retreat to the Tornado Shelter as a result of a level 1 tornado warning. Prior to the installation of the DAS, this area had no usable wireless coverage. Wireless coverage was enhanced throughout the shelter by the newly installed DAS, which enabled employees to call daycare providers, babysitters and other family members to gather and report personal status during the tornado warning.
“Our new DAS has been performing very well,” stated one Cabela’s employee. Other employees have expressed gratitude that the wireless coverage was improved.
The new system will provide Cabela’s employees, suppliers and visitors with better call quality, faster data speeds and overall more reliability in their cellular service. The building 2 DAS also has the capability to be expanded to other buildings on the Cabela’s campus.
