ADRF Reduces In-Building Wireless OpEx with VoltServer Digital Electricity

Advanced RF Technologies, one of the largest pure-play in-building Distributed Antenna System (DAS) providers for public safety and commercial radio frequencies, announced its compatibility with VoltServer’s Digital Electricity offerings to provide low-cost network installation and safe power distribution. Digital Electricity works in concert with ADRF’s ADXV Series DAS for commercial and public safety service bands as well as its PSR Series public safety repeaters.

Digital ElectricityTM enables venue owners to overcome power and network resiliency challenges, provisioning indoor and outdoor radio locations with reliable centralized backup power and centralized monitoring and control while delivering power in the same pathway as fiber to the remote node. This yields significant savings to clients, allowing for rapid network deployment.

Digital ElectricityTM solves the problem of no power at the remote location and eliminates the need to install a new source at the remote with local battery backup, minimizing cost impact to venue owners. ADRF has already implemented Digital Electricity at multiple venues such as Thermos Company in Schaumburg, IL, Central Park of Lisle in Lisle, IL, and Hyatt Regency in St. Louis, MO.

Using the same practices as Ethernet Data cabling, Digital Electricity ensures the safe delivery of power to the remote network nodes. This data is sent via low-cost copper cabling between ADRF’s headend and distributed remote locations within a building.

VoltServer continues to expand its portfolio and offerings to various applications and radio manufacturers, such as ADRF, that further promotes the use of VoltServer Digital Electricity.
