System Delivers Public Safety and Cellular Service Plus Future-Proof Support Without Hardware Upgrades
Dallas, TX – April 18, 2016 – Zinwave, a global provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, today announced that it will exhibit its UNItivity distributed wireless access solution (DAS) at the ACUTA Conference and Exhibition being held on April 24-27 in San Diego, California. In booth 314, Zinwave will demonstrate the industry’s only DAS that supports all current cellular and public safety frequencies and can accommodate the addition of future services without the need for hardware upgrades. UNItivity’s wideband architecture supports frequencies from 150 to 2700 MHz, providing access for any public safety or cellular frequency.
In addition, UNItivity uses a streamlined, all-fiber 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. Universities in particular will appreciate that UNItivity fits easily into existing telecom rooms and wiring closets and can use existing fiber resources.
“Universities need to support a wide array of radio frequencies in order to provide complete support for students, visitors and first responders,” said John Spindler, vice president of marketing at Zinwave. “Other vendors claim to have future-proof solutions, but Zinwave offers the only distributed wireless system that supports any current or future cellular or public safety frequency without the need for expensive and disruptive hardware upgrades.”
Zinwave’s UNItivity platform is the only truly future-proof, universal wireless access solution on the market. UNItivity’s unique wideband architecture breaks the cycle of endless DAS upgrades because it supports any frequency from 150 MHz to 2700 MHz, accommodating current and future wireless services without hardware upgrades. In addition, UNItivity’s streamlined, all-fiber architecture makes it more reliable and much easier to install than traditional DAS solutions. Zinwave has a global customer base and is a subsidiary of McWane Inc. (www.mcwane.com), a privately held US manufacturing company and owners of a global group of wireless technology companies.
