Verifying In-Building Critical Communications

Learn all about evolving NFPA, IFC, and AHJ requirements and best practices for testing in-building public safety radio communications in this article by PCTEL’s David Adams. This article also includes a case study in which PCTEL’s automated solution reduced in-field testing man-hours by 80%.

To ensure in-building coverage for first responders, local authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) are rapidly adopting in-building coverage requirements. These requirements are frequently based on codes developed by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and the International Code Council (ICC).

New testing methods are crucial for implementing these requirements and making reliable in-building radio coverage the new norm.

In this article originally published in MissionCritical Communications Magazine, you’ll learn about:

  • Locally adapted standards for in-building coverage
  • Test requirements
  • Code variations
  • Why grid testing?
  • What makes an ideal test solution
