LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical Telecom solutions, announced today its turnkey GPS Fiber Transport Solutions. These kitted solutions feature hardware from Optical Zonu. The GPS Fiber Transport solutions deliver reliable GPS signals from PCTEL’s high rejection GPS antennas to cellular base stations located up to five (5) miles away. The increased fiber transport range frees in-building and small cell networks from design restraints. The improvement over coaxial cable configurations translates into greater deployment flexibility and decreased costs.
“Optical Zonu has selected PCTEL as a primary sales channel partner,” said Gary Grimes, Optical Zonu’s Director of Sales, RF Solutions. “We chose PCTEL because they already provide carrier-approved antennas, they are established with many of our customers as a source for the complete GPS Fiber Transport installation kit, and they have proven to be responsive to customer needs,” added Grimes.
“PCTEL’s easy-to-install fiber transport solutions leverage our leadership in high-rejection GPS antenna technology and our application engineering capabilities,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL's Connected Solutions. “Optical Zonu is the leader in this field, and we are proud to include their products as part of our solution,” added Bharadwaj.
PCTEL’s GPS Fiber Transport Solutions are fully customizable for the particular needs of public or private wireless networks. A major wireless carrier has approved PCTEL’s first configuration of a GPS Fiber Transport Solution kit. The key solution components have been approved by multiple carriers. In addition to GPS antennas and Optical Zonu hardware with an IP67-rated enclosure, typical kits often include PCTEL’s RF surge protection, low loss RF coax assemblies, and fiber optic cable assemblies and splitters.
PCTEL will demonstrate its GPS Fiber Transport Solutions at IWCE, booth #2156, March 23-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information about PCTEL’s antennas and site solutions, please visit antenna.com. For more information about Optical Zonu’s GPS Fiber Transport products, visit opticalzonu.com.
