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.
Within the past few years, private wireless networks have quickly shifted from “nice to have” to a “must have” for a number of businesses. New advanced technological solutions offer companies the chance to gain a competitive edge, and private wireless plays a key role in making that happen.
This is Part 1 of a 2 part conversation on improving in-building coverage with the Safer Buildings Coalition (SBC). We hear about the 3 pillars of in-building public safety communications: 1) mobile 911 calls must get out with location accuracy; 2) mobile mass notifications must reach building occupants; 3) first responder communications must work.
Advanced technologies have transitioned from a competitive edge to a requirement for businesses, and private wireless is an ideal solution to support the growth. However, it isn’t right or necessary for every organization. It’s important to understand what special benefits it provides and if it’s necessary for your business.
Most hospitals around the country, particularly in rural areas, still struggle with modernization through cellular networks. This is usually because of the belief that WiFi is good enough, and confusion about how impactful it is to hospital operations coupled with budgeting concerns. The article is a typical path and process for investing in the right cellular connectivity.
The public safety communications market has historically been a quiet giant in the wireless industry. In-building connectivity for first responders has always been important, but now mobile carriers are also bringing public safety much closer to their core consumer-facing brand.
