Dali Wireless Inc., the nine-year-old company that began as a Simon Fraser University startup, has been selected by Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airport to provide in-building public safety coverage for first responders to handle mission-critical communications.

The project, covering all five terminals of the airport, is part of the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airport’s Critical Communications Infrastructure to support public safety and homeland security.

Dali, a company that is now headquartered in Silicon Valley, was chosen to design and install an all-digital distributed antenna system (DAS) to provide coverage and access throughout the DFW terminals for public safety. This is to provide first responders and other emergency services personnel clear, secure, uninterrupted communications critical during emergency situations, it said in a release

The deployment at DFW Airport will cover an area of over 3.7 million square metres square feet, and involve the deployment of the Dali t-Series PS offering. The t-Series PS consists of the headend, tHost PS, and the medium and high power remote units, t37 PS and t43 PS. According to Dali, whose R&D arm is based in Burnaby, B.C., it is an end-to-end digital platform that enables a greater reach without signal degradation and noise interference.
