TE Connectivity (TE) has announced a new public safety distributed antenna system (DAS) solution. The public safety DAS supports primary public safety and critical first responder frequencies in the VHF/UHF/700/800/900/TETRA bands on a single system and provides high-reliability coverage for public safety communications services for both in-building and outdoor applications.
TE, in collaboration with Fiber-Span, has developed a code-compliant, single DAS platform that supports the VHF/UHF/700/800/900/TETRA frequency bands used by public safety agencies. Thes new DAS platform will offer customers a seamless and world-class commercial and public safety DAS solution for any environment, according to TE.
Peter Wraight, president of TE’s Wireless Business Unit, said: "We are excited to extend our partnership with Fiber-Span. With collaboration from Fiber-Span, TE developed this solution to ensure life safety protection for the public as well as police, firefighters and other first responders.”
Hal Halpern, CEO of Fiber-Span, said: “We are pleased to be working with TE, a technology leader, on a wide range of advanced communications systems.”
TE will showcase the public safety DAS solution at the DAS & Small Cells Congress in Las Vegas Nevada on 17-18June 2014, in booth 301. The solution will be available by Autumn 2014.
