CommScope Outfits DAS Platform for European Wireless Market

first_imgWireless Network operators with their counterparts around the globe, are now racing towards Europe to best support the data applications and throughput speeds that subscribers desire. CommScope is offering a new tool for them to achieve this feat by making its next generation distributed antenna system (DAS) ready for the European marketplace. A unified, low and high power DAS, CommScope’s ION-U now supports five frequency bands common to Europe, and can be used to extend wireless coverage and capacity in many outdoor settings (oDAS) as well as indoor applications (iDAS).The ION-U features software that guides the installation, optimization and commissioning of the system, converting a time and resource intensive job into a highly automated process. Instead of requiring highly skilled RF technicians, ION-U installation can utilize a less specialized workforce while decreasing roll out times and the total cost of ownership. The ION-U supports multiple operators, multiple frequency bands and multiple generations of air interface technologies in one system. The ION-U covers the following frequencies for Europe: 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz bands. To further increase data capacity, the ION-U also supports tri-band MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) configurations over a single fiber. This feature greatly enhances the capacity and traffic load the ION-U can handle while continuing to offer a low visual impact.CommScope will demonstrate the ION-U in Stand #2E46 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, March 2-5.last_img read more

Football administrator leaves for US

first_imgBrian Rose’s 25 years of service in local football as manager and treasurer has come to an end. He left the island yesterday for the United States, where he will embark on a new phase of his life.The veteran football administrator who served local football as manager of the Tivoli Gardens and Olympic Gardens football clubs, as assistant treasurer of the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA), and on the finance committee of the JFF, said he has enjoyed his time in football.However, he believes that the local football governing body, the JFF, needs to place a lot more emphasis on and provide greater expertise for the development of youth football.“I won’t be in Jamaica, but my heart will be with Tivoli. I will help in whatever way I can. I will be helping in the background. I related to the president that I will give whatever assistance I can. I will still be a member of the Tivoli management team,” he said.However, Rose believes that the grass roots level of local football needs a lot more attention and support and called on the JFF to place a lot more emphasis on youth development.“I think I have done my fair share for football in Jamaica. I just hope the JFF will get down to some serious work on the grass-roots level of the football and improve that,” he commented.last_img read more

Newcastle in “pole position” for signing – Liverpool and Man Utd…

first_imgThat’s according to Area di Rigore journalist Paolo Esposito, who says the Magpies are offering more than Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United for the centre back.Koulibaly is widely expected to leave the Serie A club this summer, with both him and Napoli having accepted it is time for him to move on.Newcastle have been heavily linked with making a move, with it believed their potential new owners are eyeing up the Senegalese international as a marquee signing.They are not the only Premier League side to have been linked though. Manchester United are known to have a longstanding interest in the 28-year-old, while Liverpool have recently been linked as well.It is Newcastle who are leading the race, though, having offered more money in terms of a transfer fee and his wage packet, at least according to Esposito.“Juventus do not have the economic strength to buy the Neapolitan Kalidou Koulibaly,” Arena Napoli report him saying.“I believe he, will go to the Premier League, where there is Newcastle in pole position.“Then there are Manchester United and Liverpool, who have much more charm than Newcastle but offer less, both for the card and for the engagement.“Of course, if Koulibaly went to Liverpool, he would form a stratospheric couple with Virgil van Dijk!
