What is a BDA System?

By: Kati Bucciero on 05/15/24

Poor in-building radio signals can lead to communication blackouts for emergency responders, delaying critical assistance in an emergency and risking lives. This is why Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement Systems (ERCES) or Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA) Systems are now required in many commercial buildings, including high-rises and apartment buildings. They are also classified as a...
