Powerwave Technologies Announces A New Low Power Dual- And 6-Band Nexus FT Repeater Solution At Mobile World Congress 2012

Powerwave Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:PWAV), a global supplier of advanced solutions for wireless communications networks, today announced general availability of new low power (<29dBm), wideband Nexus™ FT dual (4229)- and 6-band (4629) repeaters for commercial frequencies in North America. These products are ideal for neutral host or multi-band operations because they support high-capacity multi-operator and multi-band operation.

Powerwave’s dual- and 6-band Nexus FT repeaters feature a modular and robust design that is easy to install. These powerful, cost-effective solutions enable North American operators to extend the capacity and reach wireless networks. In addition, they offer long-reach fiber optic distribution, enabling deployment up to 25km (15 miles) from an existing base station hotel, further optimizing the coverage and capacity of the existing wireless infrastructure. Due to its small size, rapid implementation and simple optimization procedures, the FT 4000 family provides an opportunity to implement a multiple band system quickly and easily.

“To date, operators have offered in-building coverage through macro networks. However, as data traffic increases and new services are implemented, requirements to maintain and improve quality of service are driving the deployment of in-building wireless coverage systems,” said Khurram P. Sheikh, chief technology officer, Powerwave. “These next-generation solutions are key to helping wireless operators overcome emerging challenges and differentiate their offerings.”

Powerwave’s family of Nexus FT repeaters was designed to minimize system complexity, operational costs, visual impact and upgrade costs. These advanced solutions provide high-quality coverage close to the mobile user to ensure 3G and 4G, and future capabilities can be fully realized in the coverage area. The 6-band unit covers Commercial 700, SMR800, CELL850, SMR900, PCS1900 and AWS 17/21, while the dual-band unit covers Commercial 700 and AWS 17/21 to provide MIMO capability with a single box and fiber addition to the network. Coupled with the integrated broadband fiber transport solution, Nexus FT repeaters provide seamless support for future technologies.
