In 2014, mobile data traffic was nearly 30 times the size of the entire global Internet traffic in 2000. Over the next 5 years, mobile data is projected to increase by factor of 10. Capacity, access, reliability ... words often used to describe what current and future wireless infrastructure needs to be. Solutions like distributed antenna systems (DAS) assist in providing capacity and access. And for a DAS, the design and installation of the DAS is vital for the reliability demanded by users.

ANSI/BICSI 006-2015 is the first DAS infrastructure standard that provides designers and installers not only information on the types and components of a DAS, BICSI 006 also provides requirements and recommendations for the design and installation of a standards-compliant, vendor-neutral DAS that is able to be used for a wide range of applications, environments and locations.
