Building owners and carriers in the
choose Zinwave DAS because of its frequency support capabilities and future-proof advantages
Zinwave Ltd, a global provider of DAS (distributed antenna system) technology for in-building wireless coverage, is facilitating wireless operators in the US with the rollout of advanced wireless services (AWS) over LTE (long term evolution) networks.
Recent installations to facilitate LTE include the Pepsi Center Arena, a multipurpose sports venue in
, the Constitution Center, the largest privately owned office building in
, and the J.W Marriott Hotel, a 10-storey hotel complex in
San Antonio, Texas
Zinwave's in-building DAS (the system 3000) has been chosen as the preferred solution for these installations because of its ability to support frequency bands allocated to 4G services (700MHz, 850MHz, 1,900 MHz, 2,100 MHz) as well as all conventional cellular frequencies (2G, 3G and CDMA) on a single hardware layer. Zinwave's DAS also has the ability to support public safety and Wi-Fi or WiMAX services.
System 3000 is unique as it is the only true wideband active Distributed Antenna System on the market, supporting multiple services across all frequencies between 150MHz and 2700MHz, making it completely future-proof.
Wireless operators began rolling out 4G networks to the larger metropolitan areas 2011. Data download speeds can be ten times faster than those over conventional 3G networks.
The US cellular market is the third largest globally and according to comScore. Over 230 million Americans aged 14 plus have a cell phone contract and 50% of these are Smartphone contracts. Carriers are under pressure to complete their LTE rollouts to keep up with consumer demand for Smartphone technology and associated expectations for high-speed wireless services. Verizon expects to complete its LTE rollout by the middle of this year.
