- Buildings – high rise buildings, corporate buildings, campus areas, arenas, airports, train stations, shopping centers
- Vehicles – In-train, aircrafts, offshore oil platforms, vessels (commercial and military)
From cable deliverer to solution provider
RFS has long expertise in the RF coverage of confined areas, starting with the first radiating cable in the seventies for communication in tunnels. At that time no one could imagine the success story of the mobile consumer communication. Radiating cable was installed to enable analog trunk communication between the train driver and the related operation centers at a low RF frequencies in the range of 75 MHz to 150 MHz. Today the requirements and expectations in a RF communication network have changed greatly. Coverage must be provided for a number of different services at different frequencies. Broadband technique is now requested transmitting mainly digital signals up to 2.4 GHz including WLAN services and more.
RFS offers complete RF system solutions for nearly every kind of confined area. These systems vary from specific solutions for large tunnel projects to a cost-effective modular system for In-building; from passive system approach to active driven systems with an optical fiber backbone structure. Last but not least RFS rounds up their spectrum offering complete remote surveillance systems for active equipment like amplifiers and electro-optical converters.
