Reduce Tower Climbs, Get Ready for C-RAN and Carve the Path to 5G with CPRI Panel Solutions from RFSRFS’ new Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) panel enables easy RF over CPRI testing at the bottom of the tower, reducing the need for unnecessary tower climbs, to minimize maintenance costs and overall OPEX for customers.
Nuclear power plants need reliable wireless communication systems for efficient management and maintenance, but their complex, super-reinforced concrete construction makes it difficult to get RF signals to and through most areas within. RFS and SOLiD developed and tested a DAS system for a decommissioning plant in Florida as a proof-of-concept to overcome these challenges and enable wireless communications inside the plant. RFS’ higher-order mode suppression technique, which allows its radiating cable to have no stop bands from 698 MHz to 2.7 GHz, was a significant factor in the system’s success. For a nuclear plant, this capability is needed to accommodate a high-performance, future-proof design and fewer shadows to enable LTE technology for data management. The radiating cable provided a uniform distribution of RF energy over the entire distance of the cable, improving coverage in all frequencies. The feasibility test was so successful that further testing will now be conducted in active power plants for future deployment.
Eileen Januszkiewicz, RFS Commercial Product Manager of Cables, contributed to Microwaves & RF’s recent report, "Passive Components Punch Through Walls"Due to their superior power-handling capability, passive components are an extremely important aspect of a high performance distributed antenna system. Throughout the article, RFS addresses how its passive components go above and beyond when it comes to satisfying the imperative need for consumer connectivity through their power dividers/combiners, directional couplers, hybrid couplers and other passive devices. This special report, written by Microwaves & RF, takes a look at some of these passive component solutions designed to meet the increasing demand for communication and connection wherever people may go.
