Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System for New Google Data Center Campus in Omaha Nebraska

VeriDAS Installs IFC 510 Fire Code Compliant Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) in Omaha Nebraska for 500K SF Google Data Center Campus

A new 500,000 square foot Google data center campus in Omaha, Nebraska required an IFC 510 fire code compliant Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) - also called a Public Safety Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). VeriDAS Technologies was selected to design, install and certify the code-required in-building BDA signal enhancement system to extend, amplify and optimize the public safety radio system frequencies inside the new expansive high tech buildings.

PROJECT

RF (radio frequency) signal coverage testing showed the newly constructed Google data center in Papillion, Nebraska in Sarpy County (near Omaha) needed an Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) installed to allow first responders’ radios to operate inside the 500,000 square foot server dense buildings. VeriDAS Technologies worked closely with the AHJ/ Fire Marshal and public safety radio system administrator to design a signal amplification solution that would meet fire code requirements, the General Contractor’s construction timeline and Google’s grand opening deadline. Thanks to impressive coordination and support from the City of Papillion and Sarpy County, VeriDAS was able to quickly design, install, certify and secure AHJ approval on the IFC 510 compliant ERRCS. The new data center was able to complete construction and begin operations without delay.
