Telecom Lead America:
Alpha Technologies has launched new products that enable wireless carriers to
deploy new network technologies to enhance bandwidth capacity.
The products include low profile power and battery backup
systems and enclosures for DAS and other small cell networks.
“The small cells’ close proximity to the users allows
the service providers to improve coverage and re-use spectrum, the hottest
commodity in wireless these days due to the bandwidth explosion. Alpha is
supplying AC, DC and network power systems to power these new sites, and we are
working with our customers to develop aesthetically pleasing enclosures that
meet their needs as well as those of their customers,” said Mike
Burkhalter, vice president of US Telecom Sales at Alpha.
The Te49 Multipurpose Enclosure is designed to address the
physical and aesthetic needs for small cell networks. The pad or pole-mount
cabinet is provided with either AC or DC solutions along with a string of
batteries for backup. The small footprint of the Te49 makes it acceptable for
locales such as neighborhoods and historic districts.
The Cordex HP 300W Power System is designed to offer carrier-grade
power for locally powered remote nodes in small cell networks. The newest
member of the Cordex family is built around 300W rectifiers that are sized to
match the new distributed wireless network loads.
Moreover, the Cordex PSU powers small cell or WiFi networks.
Alpha’s Cordex PSU is an integrated fully-featured DC power system in a compact
form factor that provides power to critical loads while enabling remote site
monitoring and delivering critical information on demand.
