General Communications provides reliable in-building communication systems to ensure emergency responder radio coverage is up to code for both new and existing structures. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA-1221) and the International Fire Code (IFC Section 510) have new mandates requiring emergency communication in all buildings. Distributed antenna systems (DAS) ensure emergency personnel can maintain radio communication throughout all parts of a building during an emergency. We provide a full range of services to ensure our customers are compliant with jurisdictional public safety radio codes and ordinances.
General Communications is a leader in providing these Public Safety Radio communication solutions. We work with all sizes and types of properties, small and large buildings, multi-building campuses, rural and metropolitan areas. Our public safety radio systems can stand alone or be integrated into a DAS (Distributed Antenna System) which serves the dual purpose of enhancing cellular coverage. We are up to date and knowledgeable on all current technology solutions. General Communications has long lasting relationships with multiple local public safety departments in Wisconsin.
In addition, General Communications deals with commercial cellular design too. As you know, people rely on cellular voice and data connectivity. 95% of Americans own a cell phone, and 81% own a smart phone. That’s 349 million smart phone users in America alone. A growing number of Americans use smart phones as their primary means of online access, spending an average of 3 hours and 15 minutes on their phones daily. We work closely with commercial and consumers to implement BDA systems that boost cell phone reception for consumers and commercial mobile phones and devices that operate all cellular carrier networks.
