Mobile World Congress: Powerwave introduces new digital repeater platform

By Telecom Lead Team: Powerwave Technologies, a supplier
of advanced solutions for wireless communications networks, has introduced a
new digital repeater platform called Nexus RT 5000 at Mobile World Congress


The platform addresses growing European 4G wireless
coverage demands and enhances the coverage and capacity of existing wireless
networks, without requiring the installation of additional macro cell sites.


The Nexus RT 5000 delivers instantaneous frequency bands
easily upgradable in the field, providing a multiple RF carrier architecture
and advanced processing and network optimization capabilities, all within a
smaller net hardware package.

It also provides interference cancellation, which
increases antenna isolation and allows greater operating gain without feedback


The solution supports up to eight individually adjustable
sub-bands (with up to 20 MHz wide in each band), which yields up to 32
sub-bands for a fully equipped repeater for flexibility and high RF


Powerwave’s new digital repeater platform offers
critical flexibility required in the early roll out stages. The solution
greatly enhances carriers’ coverage and capacity through its unique echo
cancellation and modular digital filtering capabilities to deliver the best and
most reliable wireless experience,” said Keith Kaczmarek, VP/GM of global
wireless solutions at Powerwave.


The Nexus RT 5000 is ideal for multi-carrier and
multi-band operations and reduces power requirements at the remote site with an
output composite power of +36 dBM (with a per sub-band set gain from 55 to 100
dB in 1 dB steps).


The platform features echo cancellation and power
control, HSDA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE modem and Pentaband combiner.


It also supports MIMO along with fiber feeding
possibility and flexible alarm definition and alarm receiver settings.


The company also unveiled a series of multiband and
wideband antennas
at Mobile World Congress 2012, Barcelona.
