MWC 2014: TE Connectivity demos DAS solutions

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, Barcelona, TE Connectivity will display distributed antenna systems (DAS) and optical infrastructure solutions.

TE powered fiber cable system that slashes the cost and time of small cell deployments and a CPRI interface to TE’s FlexWave digital DAS products will be the highlight of the display at the MWC 2014.

TE powered fiber cable system combines power and optical communications into one system. It eliminates the complexity of small cell installation, allowing small cell devices to be placed wherever they are needed for maximum 4G wireless coverage.

The system incorporates everything needed to power and communicate with a small cell – including the power supply, a hybrid cable, and a remote powering unit that corrects for DC line loss to eliminate the need for electrical design engineering calculations.

The TE pre-integrated CPRI solution eliminates the need for RF processing and attenuation panels on site, which can reduce physical equipment costs by more than 50 percent and cost of materials by 40 percent. The solution achieves additional cost savings by using less power (equipment consumption and cooling), space and fiber, resulting in operational improvements and meeting sustainability demands.

“These new solutions represent the latest thinking in how to make mobile networks more flexible, cost-effective, and easy to maintain,” said Peter Wraight, vice president and general manager of TE Wireless. “As mobile operators roll out LTE and other advanced services, they rely on TE Connectivity to continue pushing the envelope in terms of lower costs and faster time to revenue.”
