ADC's DAS Solutions Support Verizon's LTE Service Rollouts

ADC confirmed that it is a preferred provider of 700 MHz single-input single-output (SISO) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) solutions for Verizon Wireless' LTE service rollouts across the United States. More than 100 of ADC's InterReach and FlexWave distributed antenna systems (DAS) have been deployed in major stadiums, urban core areas, and other locations such as the New Meadowlands Stadium and Denver International Airport, where Verizon is rolling out LTE services.

ADC said its DAS solutions are a highly efficient and cost-effective way to deliver LTE services because they extend LTE signals out from centralized base stations using highly reliable, low-maintenance antennas. Rather than placing femtocells or picocells in thousands of locations, wireless service providers can reduce backhaul and operational expenses by extending signals out from centralized base stations. And rather than having to run a complete set of cabling for each service to be provided as with other DAS systems, ADC DAS solutions support multiple protocols with a single run of low-cost fiber optic and CATV cabling.
