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
