TE Connectivity Supports Maritime Communications Partner With TE DAS On Cruise Ships

Stocks in this article: TEL

TE Connectivity (TE) today announced that Maritime Communications Partner (MCP) is deploying TE’s InterReach Unison distributed antenna systems (DAS) on nine U.S.-based cruise ships to facilitate passenger and crew communications both in port and at sea. MCP chose TE systems because they are easy to deploy and easy to manage through an SNMP-based network management system.

“TE’s solution is manageable from end to end, which is crucial for maintaining communication services at all times. We have deployed their InterReach Unison DAS on dozens of ships, and the DAS always provides clear and consistent service throughout the vessel,” said Kenneth Dahlsveen, purchasing manager at MCP.

The TE InterReach Unison DAS supports 850 and 1900 MHz UMTS frequencies as well as 1800 MHz service onboard the ships. Because the InterReach Unison DAS uses thin, flexible CAT-5 cabling to connect the electronics, it is much easier to install compared to other DAS that use half-inch or larger coaxial cabling. MCP is also considering upgrading to 3G and LTE services, so the InterReach Unison DAS is a smart choice because its modular nature will make these upgrades easier, requiring changes only to the host unit electronics. Ease of deployment and upgrade is especially critical for ships since their available work hours are extremely limited.

“Cruise ships have been an active market for us because people expect their mobile devices to work at sea,” said Peter Wraight, president of TE’s Wireless business unit. “Our InterReach Unison DAS solves the mobile connectivity for MCP because it is easy to deploy and provides excellent performance.”
