TE Connectivity Showcases Advanced Mobile Network Solutions at CTIA 2014

CPRI DAS Interface, Powered Fiber, Public Safety DAS Among Featured Products

MINNEAPOLIS -- TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, today announced that it will be showcasing a range of advanced mobile network solutions at CTIA's Super Mobility Week, to be held September 9-11 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. At booth #3438, TE will be exhibiting these innovations that facilitate mobile network installation and reduce the time and cost of deployments:

FlexWave active integration panel (AIP) – an integrated base transceiver station (BTS) interface solution that takes the guesswork and expense out of system commissioning and maintenance. FlexWave AIP provides a simple, compact interface that enables BTS signal splitting and combining, automatic power leveling, and remote and local monitoring without passive intermodulation (PIM) issues.

CPRI digital interface unit (CDIU) – a pre-integrated solution that leverages the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) for base station connectivity. It removes the need for RF processing and attenuation panels at the distributed antenna system (DAS) head-end, which can reduce the physical equipment required by more than 50 percent and reduce cost of materials by up to 40 percent.

Powered fiber cable – a new hybrid fiber cable design that integrates power with fiber connectivity. This cable enables installers to deploy DAS antennas where they need to be in order to deliver the best network capacity and coverage, without having to worry about the presence or expense of local power at the antenna site.

Public safety DAS – an innovative DAS that supports primary public safety and critical first responder frequencies in the VHF/UHF/700/800/TETRA bands on a single system. This system provides high-reliability coverage for public safety communications services, both in-building and outdoors.

Sands Expo Will Host CTIA 2014 and is the Site of a TE Connectivity DAS Installation

TE will also be hosting hospitality hour at its booth on September 9 and 10 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., followed by a tour of its DAS that is installed in the Sands Convention Center.

"TE's innovative DAS products enhance the network by making DAS deployments more flexible and cost-effective," said Peter Wraight, president of TE's Wireless business unit. "Our all-digital solutions provide a robust solution set for mobile operators, neutral hosts and venue owners who want to continue to bring the highest quality of service to their subscribers and guests."
