Pulse Electronics Corporation Announces Ultra-Thin, Clear Indoor DAS Antenna
Feb 27 15
Pulse Electronics Corporation announced that it is set to bolster deployments of distributed antenna systems with its revolutionary DASUTCC500NF translucent ceiling-mount antenna that is designed to allow for greater performance and cleaner integration necessary to meet the growing indoor DAS market. This ground-breaking antenna features an ultra-thin, see-through design that allows the product to be nearly invisible when mounted, yet provides increases for in-building coverage and capacity. The antenna housing's translucent design makes it ideal for deployment in hotels, convention centers and other venues where aesthetics are of primary importance. Extending just 0.33 inches (8.4mm) below the ceiling, the DASUTCC500NF is the first in a family of ultra-thin antennas for the indoor DAS market. It is designed to support 2G, 3G and 4G LTE in the 608 MHz - 2700 MHz spectrum bands and features an -155 dBc PIM rating at 2x43dBm as per the Pulse PIMinator series. The patent pending DASUTCC500NF will begin shipping in the second quarter of this year. Pulse Electronics will also be showing the antenna by appointment at the upcoming Mobile World Congress event. The indoor DAS market is being driven by increased consumer demand for mobile data services. Traditionally, mobile operators have focused their coverage and capacity efforts on outdoor locations, with indoor coverage a byproduct of their outdoor-focused deployments. However, with a majority of mobile data traffic being generated indoors, operators are being forced to alter their deployment models with greater importance placed on ensuring a strong indoor signal. These efforts are becoming a bigger challenge at public venues that typically see large numbers of people congregate for events that can easily overwhelm traditional cellular and wireless local area networks. These deployments become more challenging at venues that also require antenna solutions that disappear into the surroundings instead of altering the original design of a location, which often becomes a point of contention in negotiations between venue owners and mobile operators for indoor DAS deployments.
