Axell Wireless has introduced its next generation Fibre DAS system supporting both cellular and public safety applications. The Axell OMU II (optical master unit) supports any major cellular or public safety wireless technology – including LTE – operating in any frequency band up to 2600MHz. The OMU II allows systems to be configured with both the new Axell MBF-20 series dual band low-power remotes and the existing MBF-40 series high-power products, thus ensuring optimum coverage for campus-style environments. The MBF-20 can be easily field upgraded to a quad-band device. The system has a fully resilient architecture, optional MIMO capability and is easily configured via a web-based GUI with SNMP support. Most importantly, the system sets a new radical price point for DAS systems, thus making coverage more affordable.
