There’s been an imperative lately to improve the signaling for cellular phones and public safety radio communications in buildings. Often in certain areas of large buildings, cell phones do not work, nor do public safety radios.

In a worst-case scenario, that means people can’t use their phones to call for help. That also means that police officers responding to calls in some schools, or firefighters in a stairwell of a commercial building, can’t communicate via their hand-held radios.

There are signal-boosting solutions available and an SSI webinar scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 26 at 2 p.m. will run through many of the latest and greatest offering.

Join Charlie Schulz, engineer for in-building communications at Alliance Corporation, on “How to Get Better Signals in Buildings Without Standing Next to a Window!” to learn:

  • Why the signals are weak in buildings, what you can do to boost signals, and how the systems are implemented.
  • How the technology works, what is required at a high level and what it means to you.
  • What are the building and fire codes for requirements for Public Safety Communications?
  • Why enforcement of these building codes has been changing for Public Safety Communications and how it impacts your building.

Schulz is a seasoned engineer with years of experience in the wireless industry, with a special focus on the in-building communications segment. A volunteer firefighter with more than 45 years of service, he is well versed in the use case for public safety emergency responder radio coverage systems (ERRCS) and has coached countless AHJs on code interpretation and implementation.

As Alliance Corporation’s representative to the Safer Building Coalition, Schulz is an active member of that organization’s advancement committee. He has represented Alliance at more than 20 Safer Building Coalition trainings, many times serving as a co-presenter.
