Kaelus Launches DAS Interface Solutions Providing Clean RF Power Management

  Kaelus Launches DAS Interface Solutions Providing Clean RF Power Management

Business Wire

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- March 17, 2013

Building on its market-leading competence in designing high-performance RF
solutions, Kaelus has launched a new range of low PIM power management
solutions to support Distributed Antenna System (DAS) networks.

The Kaelus DAS Interface Solution (DIS) unit was designed to provide the power
management interface between an in-building RF source (BTS or repeater) and
SISO or MIMO DAS head end.

Wireless service providers are faced with deploying and operating indoor and
outdoor DAS networks to enhance their end-users’ experience by providing
better coverage and greater data rate capacity. When working with systems
which support multiple providers with rich data content, it is essential to
ensure a “clean” RF environment to minimize signal distortion while providing
efficient power management to ensure product reliability.

“The market demands better products and a greater understanding of the
management of DAS environments and Kaelus is responding to this need,” said
Jacqui McLaughlin, President of Kaelus. “Kaelus’ heritage in PIM instruments
and high-performance network optimization products will ensure an
industry-leading clean RF path to the DAS array irrespective of the number of
combined carriers or power level.”

The Kaelus DIS is currently available in eight of the major network bands and
can be customized based on specific customer requirements.
