Sun Kim, ADRF’s director of product engineering, talks about the FiRe-78-8-U, the company’s channelized 700/800 MHz repeater with a built-in and fiber DAS head end in a single unit. Each unit has been certified as meeting the UL 2524, second edition, standard and supports as many as 8 remote units.
The wireless industry is anything but predictable year to year; however, momentum at the tail end of 2022 paints a clear picture of some megatrends we expect to see in 2023.
Heading into 2023, the wireless industry’s thought leaders expect a continued focus on fixed wireless access, further development of the network edge and increasing use cutting-edge technologies like robotics and artificial intelligence. Read more about what they expect in the year to come.
As electric utilities strive to further implement advanced technologies to modernize their grid, improve operations, and create a better experience for customers and administrators, private networks are becoming increasingly important.
At the major auction last February, companies spent over $81 billion to secure the spectrum that was once allocated to satellite TV. Verizon won 3,500 licenses for a whopping $45.5 billion, AT&T secured 1,621 licenses for $23.4 billion and T-mobile—needing less C-band than the others with its Sprint acquisition of 2.5GHz—won 142 licenses for $9.3 billion.
5G wireless is largely characterized by high data throughput and low latency, but spectral efficiency is the real show stealer. It’s what matters to carriers and what should matter to industries that aim to use 5G for mission-critical applications such as manufacturing, healthcare, and more.
On the back of two important product releases — the ADXV DAS C-band solution and the SDRX C-band repeater — Advanced RF Technologies’ Chief Operating Officer Arnold Kim caught up with RCR Wireless News to discuss the importance of midband spectrum for North America’s 5G future.
Part 2 of 2. We dig a little deeper into improving in-building coverage, with clarification on the jurisdiction and authorities for in-building standards, we cover who is paying for these systems and what funds are available for these, and we touch on some of the new and upcoming requirements for in-building coverage.
“We’re seeing a lot of DAS network upgrades and increasing market demand for 5G on the public network,” Andrew Jun, CTO of ADRF, told Inside Towers. “Plus, the use of private networks has started booming.”
The ADXV DAS C-band modules include mid-power remote (MPR) and high-power remote (HPR) options supporting C-band frequencies ranging from 3.7 GHz to 3.98 GHz. It can be deployed standalone or added seamlessly to an existing ADXV DAS chassis for an easy upgrade path from 4G/LTE systems.
