No “Dead-Zone” Areas

Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) are just as important to smart buildings in the 21st century as cutting-edge data centers. The best smart building DAS networks use a sophisticated network of compact, overlapping antenna cellular nodes that are separate but connected to a common wireless network source.

CommScope

DAS Solutions

CommScope is one of the largest global providers of Distributed Antenna Systems and in-building cellular network components. They have an extensive line of base station antennas designed to help improve network capacity. This includes densification, as well as increased efficiency, and new spectrum technology solutions.

If convergence is an evolutionary journey, then enhanced mobile broadband is the destination that justifies that journey. In many applications, that will take the shape of 5G connectivity that extends far beyond the conventional ideas of clearer mobile calls and faster refreshes on social media pages. In fact, services like 5G and IoT form the foundation for a dizzying array of new technologies, services and applications that will affect daily life at work, at home, at play and on the go.  No matter the environment or application, CommScope has a solution to meet the client’s wireless needs.  

ERA

ERA, Commscope’s digital distributed antenna system runs over category 6A copper and fiber optic cabling allowing reduced installation costs and ease of design based on the similarity to other structured cabling architecture and wireless network designs. This unique offering allows for reduced testing time and elimination of ½ inch coaxial cables that creates challenges during installation.  

Era C-RAN antenna system is built on C-RAN architecture that consolidates and simplifies distributed antenna system head-end resources and flexibly allocates capacity where and when it’s needed across the covered area through a simple drag-and-drop software interface.

CommScope’s Era C-RAN antenna system employs a network of interconnected antennas that provide users access to the wireless network. However, unlike traditional distributed antenna system solutions, CommScope’s C-RAN antenna system coordinates wireless capacity throughout a campus, office park or even a metro area from a centralized head-end location or even from operators’ existing C-RAN hubs.

Small Cell Wireless Technology

CommScope’s ONECELL® enables mobile network operators to meet the growing demand for reliable LTE service where it matters most—indoors—and easily transition to 5G services when they’re ready. The innovative cloud-RAN small cell architecture creates a single intelligent “super” cell inside commercial buildings and public spaces. No individual cell borders means no handovers or interference, just high-capacity, ultra-low latency performance, deployed over standard Ethernet LANs. Wireless operators can meet the soaring demand for mobile data—now and in the future—while offloading traffic from their macro networks. For enterprises, this translates to robust LTE and 5G deployed on standard IT infrastructure.

CBRS Newly Available

The RUCKUS CBRS portfolio consists of CBRS-band LTE access points (APs) and associated cloud services. It enables organizations to easily deploy private LTE networks to address a wide range of critical use cases that are poorly served by existing connectivity alternatives. To facilitate IT-led initiatives, a RUCKUS private LTE network can be deployed as easily as Wi-Fi—in a matter of hours or days—and managed from the cloud. The newly available infrastructure operates in the U.S. CBRS band (3550 – 3700 MHz).

APC

Uninterrupted Power Solutions

Power is absolutely critical for maintaining a seamless DAS network. When one or more nodes or a central network station goes down due to power loss or complications caused by an unexpected power surge it can cripple even the most well-designed DAS network.

DAS networks are a critical component in your company’s infrastructure so utilizing APC enclosures and backup power solutions are a must have for any DAS network headend or server room solution.  

3 Phase and Single Phase UPS Solutions

When the power first goes down, your network has precious minutes to safely shut down key components and start the equipment backup process. No matter what size load you need to backup with the variety of options from APC’s uninterrupted power systems, you can trust that your DAS network will operate effectively for the few remaining minutes you need to complete these critical tasks.  Whether its APC’s Symmetra and Galaxy 3 phase units or the wide range of options in the Smart UPS portfolio of products, APC has a solution for every client. 

Netshelter Enclosures

APC’s Netshelters are feature-rich rack enclosures optimized for easy installation, managing cables, integrating power distribution, and maximizing airflow.

Mixing various types of DAS equipment demands a flexible rack space for front-to-rear cable routing and hotswap component clearance. The Netshelter family of enclosures provide generous space for data and power distribution while still providing full front and rear equipment access.

Rack Power Distribution

APC is the most trusted name in PDUs.  APC’s rack mounted PDUs provide server level power availability with a variety of power metering and control options as well as environmental monitoring capability. Ranging from standard off the shelf basic, metered or switched PDUs to configurable and customizable options to meet each clients power requirements.
