TE Connectivity Announces a New Family of Higher Power Remote Antenna Units for In-Building Wireless Systems

New DAS RAUs Reduce 4G Deployment Costs and Improve Flexibility

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TE Connectivity (TE) today announced a family of new, higher power Remote Antenna Units (RAUs) for its InterReach Spectrum and InterReach Fusion distributed antenna systems (DAS). The higher power RAUs will reduce the cost of DAS deployments by requiring less equipment per installation. The RAUs can also support higher-capacity needs for 4G services, giving building owners and mobile operators greater flexibility in designing DAS solutions.

The new RAUs deliver as much as six times more power than TE’s current indoor RAUs. This makes it possible to deploy a DAS more quickly and cost-effectively because less equipment and cabling will be needed to deliver coverage and capacity. TE estimates that this new RAU family will save their customers up to 50% on total solution cost. In addition, the higher power RAUs can be mixed with TE’s current RAUs in venues where extra antenna power is required at some locations but not others. Moreover, the new RAUs can be deployed in multiple scenarios including wiring closets, giving DAS architects even more flexibility in system design.

The higher power RAUs are particularly useful in supporting 3G and 4G network technologies such as W-CDMA and LTE where greater signal strength is needed for multi-media applications. 4G services promise more capacity to users, and the new higher power RAUs deliver that capacity.

“Greater flexibility and lower costs are the key benefits our customers will gain from these new higher power RAUs,” said Alan Clarke, president of Network Solutions at TE Connectivity. “These new InterReach Spectrum and InterReach Fusion RAUs emphasize our position at the forefront of in-building wireless technology in the market.”
