Advanced RF Technologies, Inc. (ADRF), a large pure-play distributed antenna system (DAS) and repeater provider,, announced the new fiber-to-the-edge (FTTX) low power remote (LPR) unit for the ADXV Series DAS at Connect (X) 2024 in Atlanta, Ga. It provides the industry’s best combination of flexibility, performance, and low total cost of ownership due to its end-to-end RF transport exclusively over fiber from the signal source to the antenna, thereby eliminating the significant expense of installing and testing coaxial cables required by traditional DAS remote units.

The ADXV LPR supports RF bands from 617 to 3980 MHz on a single hardware layer regard-less of protocol or modulation. The advanced power control capabilities and IP 66-rated chassis allow it to work with nearly any indoor or outdoor network architecture.

“The ADXV LPR is the ideal solution for mobile carriers and enterprises to address coverage gaps in large multi-sector deployments, whether that is during the network design phase or post-installation,” said Sun Kim, director of engineering at ADRF. “Not only does end-to-end fiber connection provide optimal system performance and reduced labor and component costs, but our power control technology ensures the LPR can be adjusted to meet the power needs of any sector and avoid interference with the rest of the network.”

ADRF’s ADXV LPR features:

  • Frequency range between 617 to 3980 MHz
  • 17 dBm of downlink composite output power for 600 MHz, 700 MHz (commercial) and cellular + SMR800
  • 20 dBm of downlink composite output power for PCS, AWS, WCS and BRS
  • 3 dBm of downlink composite output power for C-Band (5G NR)
  • Fiber-to-the-edge
  • IP66 rating without any additional chassis
  • Supports communication and power from primary to secondary unit
  • Optical coupler to feed two primary units with one strand of fiber from the hub.

In addition to showcasing the new ADXV LPR at Connect X, ADRF is also displaying their upcoming SDRC Series repeater, a low-power Part 20 compliant bi-directional amplifier that makes it easier, faster, and more cost-effective than ever for enterprises to provide cellular coverage by bypassing the often lengthy and cumbersome process typically involved with establishing in-building wireless networks.
