TE Connectivity Shows off Solutions for Smarter Small Cell Networks at Mobile World Congress
New Solutions Enable Efficient, Highly Scalable, High-Performance Indoor and Outdoor Networks
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TE Connectivity today announced that it will display a range of distributed antenna systems (DAS) and optical infrastructure solutions that create smarter small cell networks at the Mobile World Congress show, booth 6D97, in Barcelona this week. Among the innovations to be shown are:
- A CPRI interface card for TE digital distributed antenna system (DAS) products that further simplifies multiband, multiservice small cell distribution. A direct CPRI interface will bring unprecedented efficiencies to DAS by eliminating unnecessary dual conversion and amplification stages from the radios to the DAS Host.
- Advancements to TEs innovative high-powered, more energy efficient DAS radio heads. These advancements include additional frequency bands and digital capacity to their +43dBm HDM solutions supporting worldwide migration to 4G services such as LTE and multi-operator neutral host networks.
- TEs new Serial Link Combiner (SLC), which increases radio-over-fiber transport capabilities to 10 Gbps. With capacity needs continuing to increase, the SLC brings efficiencies to radio-over-fiber transport, offering advantages to baseband pooling and lessening the demand for fiber fronthaul.
- TEs Rapid Fiber panel slashes small cell solution deployment costs by simplifying construction and expansion of fiber in small cell networks. Its innovative RapidReel fiber cable spool helps ensure fast cable routing and easy handling by technicians, while offering maximum equipment space savings.
Wireless networks out of necessity are moving toward small cell serving areas. TE has created solutions that lead the industry in small cell efficiency, performance, and scalability, and we are pleased to be presenting them at Mobile World Congress, said Peter Wraight, vice president and general manager of TEs Wireless business unit. Our innovative approach to small cell architecture makes it easy for mobile operators to support and manage the integration of advanced service initiatives such as LTE into their network.
TEs booth will also feature a network model that highlights the advantages TE solutions bring to market including the ability to easily upgrade networks, move capacity based on user demand and service uptake, and optimize fiber networks. TE executives, including Chief Technology Officer Rob Shaddock, will be on hand to discuss challenges and solutions for deploying small cell networks. All are welcome to stop by and chat with TE executives and industry colleagues at TEs hospitality hour on February 25, 26 and 27 at 16:00 hours in their booth.
