Silicon Valley presence allows Zinwave to capitalise on a buoyant in-building DAS market in the Americas
Zinwave Ltd, global providers of distributed antenna system (DAS) technology for in-building wireless coverage, has opened new offices in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley and home to many of the world’s largest technology companies. The office will be used as a sales, operations and logistics base for Zinwave customers in North America.
A presence in California’s technology hub will allow Zinwave to further grow its rapidly expanding installation base and strengthen its position as a market leader of next‐generation RF coverage solutions using advanced photonics and wideband amplifier technology.
Zinwave has also appointed a new Office Manager, Kat Paule, to oversee all operational, procurement, customer service and support activities in the US and Canada. Kat has over 8 years’ experience in the mobile telecoms market and has worked for LGC Wireless, ADC and TE Connectivity. Before joining Zinwave she was responsible for managing projects for neutral host providers, carriers and distributors in the US and Canada.
Zinwave’s wideband DAS is the only system capable of supporting multiple cellular and public safety services between 150MHz-2700MHz on a single hardware layer, regardless of protocol or modulation scheme. It is also the only system to support multiple FDD and TDD LTE services simultaneously across any spectrum allocated globally.
Zinwave’s wideband DAS (Zinwave 3000) offers building owners, telecom operators and neutral host providers an “install-once” solution. It eliminates the need for expensive and disruptive upgrades to existing infrastructures to accommodate new services as they become available. Its straightforward design (comprising just four components) and unique technology delivers the most flexible solution in the in-building market place, with lowest total cost of ownership.
Says Laddy Fleming, EVP, Global Sales and Support, Zinwave;“Opening offices in San Jose, Silicon Valley is a major milestone for Zinwave. It provides us with a base from where we can put in place the logistical and operational facilities needed to support our growing customer portfolio. We can expand our client services and support resources and work in tandem with the major operators as they accelerate growth for in-building coverage to facilitate the rollout of 4G services.”
Over the last several months Zinwave has deployed wideband DAS technology into multiple building types, including the the Pepsi Center Arena, Denver, Colorado, the Constitution Center, Washington DC, the 9/11 Memorial Museum, NYC, and the J.W Marriott Hotel, San Antonio, Texas.
Zinwave is a global provider of active DAS technology for in-building wireless coverage, with offices in UK, USA, Asia and Australia. “Zinwave 3000” is the only true wideband active Distributed Antenna System on the market, supporting multiple services across all frequencies between 150MHz and 2700MHz on a single hardware layer. It is straightforward to deploy and scalable to meet future requirements.
Zinwave’s RF planning, programme management and execution teams are highly skilled, with extensive experience in all areas of wireless communications and international telecoms. Sales activities are global and the company has established relationships with all major operators and system integrators.
Zinwave is a subsidiary of McWane Inc, a privately held manufacturing company based in the US and owners of a global group of wireless technology companies.
