Zinwave DAS deployed at 9/11 Memorial Museum in NYC

A Zinwave System 3000 was utilised to enhance wireless service for Mobilitie’s in-building distributed antenna system (DAS) recently launched at the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City.

Mobilitie LLC is a provider of wireless infrastructure solutions in the US. Mobilitie’s new communications infrastructure, which utilises System 3000’s wideband capabilities, is providing multi-service coverage for all major carriers at the museum’s underground location, spanning more than 110,000 square feet.

The Museum’s dedication ceremony was led by President Obama on 5 May and was opened to the public on 21 May 2014. The facility has been built below the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, which opened in 2011.

System 3000 supports all cellular and public safety services between 150MHz-2700MHz on a single hardware layer, regardless of protocol or modulation scheme. It is also able to support multiple FDD and TDD LTE services simultaneously across any spectrum allocated globally, providing an efficient capability for future upgrades and spectrum additions.

“We are honoured to have a role in the 9/11 Memorial Museum and to help keep people connected with family and friends while visiting. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is an impactful experience, so it was important for us to ensure that visitors are able to share it with others through their mobile devices, and to also stay connected while underground," said Christos Karmis, president of Mobilitie. “The Mobilitie DAS network at the museum is designed to work with all of the major wireless carriers.”

Laddy Fleming, EVP global sales and support at Zinwave, said: “We have worked closely with Mobilitie’s technical team to ensure the DAS was able to offer multi-service, multi-operator support in time for the opening ceremony. Mobile web usage in the US has doubled in the last four years and Mobilitie’s DAS installation will enable visitors to share their experiences with others in real time.”
