Westell Technologies, Inc. announced the introduction of its ClearLink DAS. ClearLink DAS is an advanced in-building distributed antenna system used to enhance high-speed cellular technologies, such as LTE, and provide outstanding coverage with superior data rates within buildings. Westell’s ClearLink DAS is engineered to deliver exceptional system performance with unparalleled flexibility and scalability, and provides advanced features to simplify DAS commissioning and optimization. In addition, ClearLink DAS addresses the Near-Far performance issue, which is inherent in conventional DAS networks.

Highlights of Westell’s ClearLink DAS: Hybrid digital and analog solution that provides superior DAS performance for the ultimate end-user experience. Improves Near-Far performance by better than 15 dB over a conventional analog DAS. Pay as user grow DAS solution allows users to add additional bands and/or service providers at any time expanding the system as requirements evolve. Flexible and scalable head-end architecture permits the combination of POIs and DAS equipment in one chassis. Decreases OpEx by reducing commissioning time with the advanced auto path detection and calibration feature, which adjusts parameters in the RF and optical paths to optimize system performance. The echo feature streamlines data entry of like parameters between common modules, further simplifying the configuration process. Provides individual sub-band power control in the remote as well as alarming and user access based on login credentials for neutral host deployments. Increases wireless service provider revenue by improving data rates and customer satisfaction through enhanced Near-Far performance.
