SAN FRANCISCO, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Building owners and carriers in the USA 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 Denver, Colorado, the Constitution Center, the largest privately owned office building in Washington DC, 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.
Says Laddy Fleming, EVP, Worldwide Sales: "Around a third of US households are wireless and people expect instant access to the internet via their cell irrespective of location. Operators must therefore have the capacity and managed infrastructure to support these expectations, especially during peak usage periods. Zinwave's DAS not only ensures reliable coverage for all frequencies in an in-building environment, existing customers can easily add LTE and other services to their DAS infrastructure for little or no investment, offering rapid ROI."
Zinwave is a global technology company that pioneered a new approach for multi-service in-building wireless coverage.
