Zinwave to accelerate next-generation photonics development programme in support of advanced LTE networks and future 5G services

MWC 2014 Preview: Zinwave to unveil expansion programme following acquisition by McWane

Zinwave will be unveiling plans to speed up its research into next-generation photonics to maximise data through-puts over of advanced LTE networks at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona, following its acquisition by McWane Inc, a privately held diverse manufacturing company based in the US.

Already the only company that can support multiple FDD and TDD LTE services simultaneously across any spectrum allocated globally on a single hardware layer, Zinwave will be building on its proven future-proof platform, ensuring it is able to maximise and deliver the capabilities predicted for 5G networks.

Zinwave is planning to expand its geographical presence and infrastructure for markets in which it operates and to double its head count within 12 months. There will be a strong emphasis on design engineering, sales, customer service and technical support to ensure it maintains its competitive edge and remains a market leader in the development of fibre-based RF coverage solutions.

Zinwave’s in-building wideband active DAS is the only solution available in the market place that supports all cellular and public safety services (including any variant of the new LTE services) on a single hardware layer, the company said. Zinwave’s DAS supports any combination of services between 150MHz and 2700MHz, regardless of protocol or modulation scheme.

The system’s straightforward design (comprising just three components) and unique technology delivers building owners, telecom operators and neutral host providers the most flexible solution in the market place, with lowest total cost of ownership per installation.

Colin Abrey, President, International, Zinwave, said: “We are already recognised by industry analysts for our innovative capabilities and we are part of a €1.1 million EU funded R&D project to further advance next-generation photonics and optimised MIMO systems. Our new status allows us to capitalise on our technical strengths and significantly increase our total market share in a rapidly growing industry.”

Zinwave said it has recently secured its largest MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) contract to date, covering a total area in excess of 85,000 sqm and spanning more than 100 floors.

At MWC, Zinwave can be found in Hall 7, Booth No 7P4MR, 24-27 February 2014.
