Future-Proof UNItivity DAS Offers Built-In Support for New Spectrum
Without Hardware Upgrades
Dallas, TX – November 29, 2016 – Zinwave, a global provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, today announced that it will showcase its UNItivity distributed wireless access solution (DAS) at the DAS and Small Cells Congress Europe show being held November 30 through December 2 at the Sheraton Arabellapark Hotel in Munich, Germany. At the show, Zinwave will demonstrate the industry’s only DAS that supports all current cellular and public safety frequencies and can accommodate the addition of future frequencies without the need for hardware upgrades.
Mobile operators are continually adding new spectrum to their networks, and DAS must adapt to accommodate these changes. UNItivity’s wideband architecture supports frequencies from 150 to 2700 MHz, providing access for any cellular and public safety frequency. In addition, UNItivity uses a streamlined design that includes just two components: a primary/secondary hub, and a thin, ceiling-mounted remote unit, so installation and maintenance is less expensive than with other, more complex DAS systems.
As an all-fiber system, Zinwave’s UNItivity DAS is an ideal solution for large facilities like airports, hospitals, and hotels because cabling can extend for more than a dozen kilometers while delivering uniformly high performance at each antenna location. UNItivity also delivers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) because it natively handles a wide range of current and future public safety frequency bands, so expensive equipment upgrades aren’t needed when new bands go into service.
“Wireless coverage has become the ‘fourth utility’ in buildings, and a DAS is the most effective way to provide it,” said Scott Willis, president and CEO at Zinwave. “Zinwave’s wideband DAS architecture delivers outstanding performance with the industry’s lowest TCO, making it the best choice for in-building wireless deployments.”
