MWC 2015: TE Connectivity displays optical and digital RF solutions for small cell networks

TE Connectivity (TE) is showcasing digital distributed small cell systems and fiber connectivity solutions at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

TE is displaying a passive optical network (PON) integrated with TE’s FlexWave Prism digital distributed small cell product to illustrate the efficiencies in wireline and wireless integration to save costs, speed deployment, or introduce new lines of business.

A carrier baseband unit (BBU) integrated into a TE distributed small cell system via the CPRI interface, eliminates racks of radio-frequency (RF) and attenuation panels in a head-end deployment, slashing head-end space, power and costs

Another solution, FlexWave Prism high-power DAS, is capable of supporting up to eight frequency bands or 300 MHz of spectrum, for multi-operator service in buildings in locations challenged with signal dominance, or in buildings upgrading passive systems for 3G and 4G services.

TE also demonstrates a new distributed small cell solution for small/medium-sized buildings.

The Active Integration Panel (AIP) which streamlines head-end connectivity and enables remote network monitoring, with TDD-LTE compatibility is another solution on display.

The company also displays a new Power over Ethernet (PoE) extender solution for TE’s powered fiber cable system, which extends the reach of PoE to 3000 meters; and TE’s Quareo physical layer management system, which provides real-time documentation and visibility into the physical network.

“TE Connectivity remains on the leading edge of innovation in mobile wireless infrastructure products, and the Mobile World Congress allows us to showcase our solutions for the world,” said Peter Wraight, vice president and general manager of TE Wireless.

“By expanding our all-digital mobile wireless portfolio to support new and more cost-effective distributed small cell deployments, TE is making wireless networks smarter and more efficient for mobile operators, neutral hosts and building owners,” Wraight added.
