Advanced RF Technologies, Inc. (ADRF), a large pure-play distributed antenna system (DAS) and repeater provider, announced its ADXV DAS now provides converged wireless network solutions, offering building owners at least 30 percent in cost savings by supporting commercial and public safety frequency bands in a single enclosure. The ADXV Series modular, carrier-grade DAS meets wireless coverage and capacity needs from the simplest to the most complex venues and transports frequencies from VHF to C-Band.

Traditionally, building owners must deploy commercial and public systems separately, which incurs additional equipment, labor, cabling, conduit and component costs. With the addition of the NEMA 4 / IP66 chassis, ADXV's flexible architecture allows for public safety and commercial cellular networks in the same head-end (HE) and meets NFPA 1225 standards, including UL 2524, second edition. For regions where authorities having jurisdiction still require separate head ends for public safety and cellular coverage, the ADXV head ends can be daisy-chained to manage the entire system from a single interface.

“Wireless is becoming as important as any utility for businesses, but unlike other utilities for small to mid-sized businesses and venues, can be cost prohibitive,” said Sun Kim, Director of Engineering at ADRF. “The shared resources of a converged wireless solution make it much more affordable for building owners to provide connectivity for consumers and first responders with significant space savings plus a streamlined design and installation for system integrators.”

ADRF’s converged solution includes:

  • UL2524 (second edition) certified and NEMA 4 / IP66 rated DAS HE
  • Commercial mid or high power remote unit (RU)
  • Public safety RU
  • Optional optical expansion unit for large deployments.  

"As the demand for converged solutions continues to rise, businesses increasingly recognize the significant cost and time savings associated with integrating commercial DAS alongside mandatory public safety deployments,” said Joe Ioco, director of services at Communications International. “At Communications International, we've observed this trend firsthand and are excited to collaborate with ADRF to meet these evolving needs in jurisdictions that permit such integrated solutions."
