UNItivity System Delivers Public Safety and Cellular Service in an Easy-to-Deploy, Future-Proof Package
Dallas, TX – June 16, 2016 – Zinwave, a global provider of wideband distributed network solutions for in-building wireless, today announced that it will showcase its UNItivity distributed wireless access solution (DAS) at the HITEC 2016 show being held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA on June 20-23. HITEC is the world’s largest hospitality technology show, and in booth 1847 Zinwave will demonstrate the industry’s only DAS that supports all current cellular and public safety frequencies and can accommodate the addition of future frequencies without the need for hardware upgrades.
UNItivity’s wideband architecture is ideal for hospitality venues because it supports frequencies from 150 to 2700 MHz, providing access for any public safety or cellular frequency, and it does so without the need for hardware upgrades. The system has been selected for deployment in many hospitality projects, including the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas, the Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, CA, and the W Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ. UNItivity is easy and less expensive to install because it uses a streamlined design that includes just two components: a primary/secondary hub, and a thin, ceiling-mounted remote unit.
As an all-fiber system, Zinwave’s UNItivity DAS is an ideal solution for hotel and resort properties because cabling can extend for more than a dozen kilometers (supporting facilities of any size) while delivering uniformly high performance at each antenna location. UNItivity also delivers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) because it natively handles a wide range of current and future cellular and public safety frequency bands, so expensive and disruptive equipment upgrades aren’t needed when new bands go into service.
“Hotel guests, staff, and first responders demand uniform, high-performance wireless services wherever they go within a hospitality venue,” 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 hotels and resorts worldwide.”
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.
