As demand for mobile services continues to grow at an explosive rate, operators need to maximize capacity and utilize every kHz of spectrum that they have as efficiently as possible. To do this, RF (operating) systems are often co-located, which can result in interference that degrades system performance and can increase the number of dropped calls in the network, ultimately compromising the overall user experience.
RFS continues to pioneer new technologies for broadcast infrastructure. From evolution of DTV to digital switchover, to spectrum repack programs, we’re out front providing end-to-end, innovative solutions. Our history and leading technologies for this ever-important industry are now memorialized in a new video you can view on YouTube and on our website.
RFS’ field-installable, compact 4.3-10- style connectors are the ideal complement to RFS’ industry-leading foam dielectric coaxial cables and feature optimized PIM stability to meet industry demands. Available as a supplementary offering to the existing factory-fit jumper orientations, the two-piece design inhibits the potential of loose parts and simplifies installation in the field to support mobile operators in their deployment of LTE, 5G and small cell networks.
The population’s dependence on high-speed wireless communications continues to increase with no end in sight. RFS has published a new guide to help you overcome densification challenges, migrate to 5G and future-proof your network for C-RAN with our end-to-end flexible CPRI solutions.
As RF spectrum allocation evolves, the filtering challenges associated with indispensable, modern co-location scenarios have become particularly complex because each scenario is unique. RFS is ideally positioned to address today’s highly sophisticated, tailor-made co-location filtering requirements and solve the challenges of virtually every scenario. We have designed solutions for a multitude of applications including interference between international borders, mitigating radar interference and interference between heterogeneous applications (such as between TV channels and telecom carriers).
We’re gearing up for MWC ’17, taking place February 27-March 2nd in Barcelona. RFS representatives will be available in our on-site meeting room to discuss how RFS’ solutions for indoor and outdoor wireless deployments and small cells enable our customers to address their most pressing challenges.
Some topics highlighted at the show will include how RFS’ products support customers in deploying new frequencies for higher throughput, simplifying site acquisitions, and decreasing TCO with network sharing.
RFS will be a Gold Sponsor at Verizon’s 2017 In Building Technology Users Forum taking place in Austin, TX from January 22 - January 25, 2017.
We’ll be in booth #51.
RFS can deliver everything our customers need to provide indoor wireless services virtually anywhere, with optimum flexibility and electrical performance. Four new passive antennas have recently been introduced for in-building distribution of 2G/3G/4G wireless communications systems, as well as Wi-Fi and WLAN services.
All four lightweight antennas feature PIM-optimized antenna design to ensure the highest performance for in-building passive DAS applications. The new antennas include two broadband omnidirectional antennas and two broadband panel antennas supporting all wireless services in the 698-960/1710-2700MHz frequency bands.
New broadcast connector kits are now available in North America for RFS’ industry-leading air dielectric cables. One connector will be available for each of RFS’ popular air cable sizes, and the kits will include all components necessary for convenient installation - including the inner joining kit, hardware kit with O-ring, gas block/pass conversion, connector sealant and heat shrink tubing.
RFS recently announced availability of its RFStar™ UHF slotted array antennas to help broadcasting stations simplify their transition to the new spectrum with the North American repack. RFStar antennas incorporate already proven slot design technology to provide a simple and reliable option for single or dual channel fixed polarization applications. Designed for enhanced reliability, simplified installation, these antennas provide excellent performance with the ATSC1.0 or ATSC3.0 standards.
Operators have a new option for network upgrades with RFS’ HCWW*XD 8-port antennas, offered as an extension to the RFS RF X-TREME™ base station antenna series. The new antennas feature all the premium benefits of the 6-port X2 series predecessor - with industry-leading gain and the best vertical pattern control of similar antennas available today – and allow operators to implement 4xMIMO on four distinct bands using two radomes.
