RF Distribution


Distributed Small Cells 

  • Primarily single-operator solutions supporting one or two frequencies bands per small cell
  • Supports 3G (UMTS) or 4G (LTE) technology and WIFI
  • Available in licensed operator cellular bands like 2100/1700MHz
  • Can operate in unlicensed WIFI spectrum to provide capacity boost as a downlink offload
  • Well-suited for enterprise applications where single operator deployments are the norm and where combined LAN plus cellular communications on the same cable infrastructure is highly valued
  • Power for each small cell is typically delivered over the LAN cable through a POE+ driver

Small Cell Deployment_300x233

  • Simple is virtually eliminated. No RF cabling, limited frequency combinations (single operator) and the very low transmit power levels (<250 mW) present at each small cell radio
  • Passive intermodulation  is virtually eliminated. No RF cabling, limited frequency combinations (single operator) and the very low transmit power levels (<250 mW) present at each small cell radio
  • Connects directly to the operator’s core network or through a security gateway or to a hosted private network core using a luh and S1/X2 interfaces
  • Can be offered as a private network with enterprise self-management
