DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) being held on March 27-31 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In booth 1570, Zinwave will demonstrate the industry’s only in-building wireless system that supports all current public safety as well as cellular frequencies, and can accommodate the addition of future frequencies without the need for hardware upgrades. In addition, Zinwave VP of Operations James Martin will speak on the panel, “Network Capacity and Densification: HetNets, Backhaul, and FirstNet,” which will be presented on March 28 from 8:30 to 11:30AM.
UNItivity’s wideband architecture supports frequencies from 150 to 2700 MHz, providing access for any public safety or cellular frequency, including FirstNet’s 700 MHz LTE. In addition, UNItivity uses a streamlined design that includes just two main 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. Zinwave also offers a NEMA-certified waterproof enclosure for remote units that protects them from water, smoke and other environmental factors.
As an all-fiber system, Zinwave’s UNItivity solution is an ideal choice for large facilities like airports, hospitals, universities and hotels because spare dark fiber is often available, saving on installation costs, and cabling can extend for more than a dozen kilometers 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 public safety frequency bands, so expensive equipment upgrades aren’t needed when new bands go into service.
“Many municipalities mandate public safety coverage in buildings over a certain size, and a wideband solution like UNItivity offers the ability to distribute public safety as well as cellular signals on the same infrastructure,” said Scott Willis, president and CEO of Zinwave. “We have extensive experience in deploying in-building public safety systems in a range of venue types such as universities and government facilities, so we bring outstanding skills along with an unrivaled product to the challenges of public safety wireless deployments.”
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.
