Distributed antenna system delivers public safety service plus future-proof support without hardware upgrades

CCW 2016: Zinwave to demonstrate DAS for public safety

Zinwave, a provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, is to showcase its UNItivity distributed wireless access solution (DAS) at the Critical Communications World show being held on 31 May to 2 June in Amsterdam.

In booth A24, Zinwave will demonstrate what it claims is the industry’s only DAS that supports all current public safety frequencies and can accommodate the addition of future frequencies without the need for hardware upgrades.

UNItivity’s wideband architecture supports frequencies from 150 to 2700 MHz, providing access for any public safety frequency. In addition, UNItivity uses a streamlined design that includes just two components: a primary/secondary hub, and a thin, ceiling-mounted remote unit, so installation and maintenance is less expensive than with other, more complex DAS systems.

As an all-fibre system, Zinwave’s UNItivity DAS is an ideal solution for large facilities like airports, hospitals, and hotels because cabling can extend for more than a dozen kilometres while delivering uniformly high performance at each antenna location.

Zinwave claims that UNItivity also delivers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) because it natively handles a wide range of current and future public safety frequency bands, so expensive equipment upgrades aren’t needed when new bands go into service.

“First responders demand uniform, high-performance wireless services inside any building,” said John Spindler, vice president of marketing at Zinwave. “Our wideband, simplified DAS architecture delivers outstanding performance with the industry’s lowest TCO, making it the best choice for public safety deployments.”
