TE Connectivity Reduces Cost of Connecting Distributed Antenna Systems

TE Connectivity introduced a FlexWave Active Integration Panel (AIP) that provides multi-carrier, multi-protocol connectivity between mobile operator base stations (BTS) and distributed antenna systems (DAS).

The FlexWave AIP is a rack-mountable unit that supports up to eight BTS TX/RX inputs, enabling it to connect multiple BTS in a multi-operator or neutral host application. The FlexWave AIP handles BTS power levels up to 100 Watts.  It is compatible with DAS products from TE Connectivity. It can also be used with other vendors’ DAS offerings.

“FlexWave AIP takes the guesswork, complexity, and cost out of integrating multiple BTS in a DAS deployment,” said Tony Lefebvre, director of product management of TE’s Wireless business unit. “With this new addition to the FlexWave family, we continue to simplify DAS deployment, delivering remotely-monitored control of BTS power levels in a compact system.”
