TE powers mobile services in Copenhagen Metro by deploying distributed antenna system

By Telecom
Lead Team: 
TE Connectivity announced that
its FlexWave Prism distributed antenna system (DAS) has been deployed
throughout the Copenhagen Metro subway system.


The deployment
was done to provide clear and consistent mobile service for multiple mobile
operators throughout the Copenhagen Metro subway system.


The FlexWave
Prism DAS replaces an incumbent DAS solution that was having performance and
reliability problems.


The replaced
DAS had active elements in train tunnels that required maintenance in areas
where access was severely restricted. The FlexWave Prism DAS minimized this
issue by lowering the number of active elements in the tunnel from more than 50
to 13. It reduced maintenance costs while improving reliability.


significant savings was the removal of the eight local base station locations
deployed throughout the Metro. The base stations were replaced by a base
station hotel that supports multiple operators from one central location,
reducing real estate costs and simplifying network management.


Managed by
Niras, the new FlexWave Prism DAS, supports GSM900, and can be easily upgraded
to support DCS, UMTS-HSPA, & LTE services.


all-digital RF transport of the FlexWave Prism DAS ensures consistent power
levels and performance everywhere in the system, no matter how far a remote
unit is from its base station.


“With its
combination of stations, tunnels, and elevated trackways, the Copenhagen Metro
was an ideal candidate for our FlexWave Prism DAS, and we are honored that the
Danish mobile operators selected our solution for this strategic and important
infrastructure in Copenhagen,” said Chris Jurasek,
TE Wireless and Services vice president and general manager.  


Recently,  TE Connectivity introduced a new video distribution system (VDS) that enables
network managers to deliver HD RF and IP video over an existing data cabling
infrastructure without the need for coaxial cabling or any RF tuning.
