TE Connectivity Announces Additional FlexWave Prism High-Density Modules

Mobile World Congress 2014

MINNEAPOLIS - (BUSINESS WIRE) -TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, today announced additional high-density modules for their FlexWave Prism distributed antenna system (DAS), enabling the units to support up to 75 MHz per band with two frequency bands per module. This means that a 2-bay FlexWave Prism remote unit can now support up to four frequency bands, 40 watts, or up to 300 MHz of spectrum. This module is ideal for delivering 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz, or 2600 MHz MIMO and 800 MHz digital dividend services in the EMEA and Asia-Pacific regions of the world.The new FlexWave Prism modules are an excellent long-term investment in DAS infrastructure because they support so many different frequencies with high power output. By supporting multiple frequency bands with a single module, FlexWave Prism modules easily enable migration from 3G to 4G services as well as multi-operator applications where two or more mobile operators share a power amplifier. Moreover, by using digital simulcast to deliver services between the DAS head end and remote units, the FlexWave Prism module enables operators to easily shift capacity from one area to another as subscriber needs dictate. The digital DAS reaches up to 20 kilometers to serve urban and suburban areas as well as stadiums, office parks, and other facilities.

The high density modules deliver the same power and frequency band support of the prior generation of FlexWave Prism modules, but are now housed in a 40 percent smaller remote unit for up to 40 watt or four-band applications. The solution is physically smaller and more energy efficient because it consumes less power.

As part of the FlexWave Prism product family, the high-density modules support a highly efficient means of delivering mobile network capacity inside of buildings or in outdoor areas. FlexWave Prism products are chosen by mobile operators all over the world for their efficiency, performance, and cost-effectiveness achieved through ease of maintenance and upgradability.

“The FlexWave Prism DAS supports multi-operator, multi-protocol services in a compact, cost-effective, and power-efficient manner,” said Peter Wraight, vice president, TE Wireless. “It is ideal for mobile operators who want to deploy DAS with multiple frequencies and high power levels without the complexity of multiple DAS equipment overlays.”

TE will showcase the FlexWave Prism high density modules at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, from February 24-27, 2014, in booth 6B52.
