Radio Frequency Systems Introduces Four New Passive DAS Antennas

November 10, 2016

Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, is adding four new passive antennas to its suite of complete end-to-end solutions for wireless in-building communications requirements.

The new products include two broadband omnidirectional antennas and two broadband panel antennas supporting all wireless services in the 698-960/1710-2700MHz frequency bands. The new broadband antennas are made for in-building distribution of 2G / 3G / 4G wireless communications systems as well as for Wi-Fi and WLAN services. Two of them ─ one new omnidirectional antenna (I-ATO5-698/2700M) and one panel antenna (I-ATP5-698/2700M) ─ are designed for 4G LTE multi-band MIMO to specifically support high capacity applications.                                              

All four new antennas feature PIM-optimized antenna design (150dBC @2x20W) to ensure highest performance for in-building passive DAS applications. They also include low loss pigtail with N female connectors. Versions compatible with the 4.3-10 standard will be available soon. The new antennas are constructed from lightweight materials, ideal for easy ceiling mounting. Their low profile and off-white radome blend unobtrusively into most building aesthetics to minimize visual impact.                                               

RFS’ comprehensive, passive DAS product portfolio enables RF wideband, multi-band, multi-technology, and multi-operator support. In addition to antennas, the company’s RF cables combine flexibility and strength with low attenuation and high power ratings; non-cable components maintain overall system and PIM performance; and RF-over-fiber repeaters can be used to re-amplify signals across long distances. RFS recently enhanced its portfolio of passive RF components with 90 new products, as well, to provide a full range of solutions for all wireless in-building commercial and mission-critical communications requirements.

“Adding these four new passive antennas to our product line further extends the complete end-to-end system solutions we provide,” said Axel Schroeder, RFS’ commercial product manager. “RFS can now deliver everything our customers need to provide indoor wireless services virtually anywhere, with optimum flexibility and electrical performance.”
