Zinwave Demonstrating Public Safety Wireless Solution at IWCE

Zinwave is showcasing its UNItivity Distributed Wireless Access solution at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from March 27-31, 2017. Zinwave will demonstrate the industry’s only in-building wireless system that supports all current public safety as well as cellular frequencies, and can accommodate the addition of future frequencies without the need for hardware upgrades. In addition, Zinwave VP of Operations James Martin will speak on the panel, “Network Capacity and Densification: HetNet, Backhaul, and FirstNet,” which will be presented on March 28.

UNItivity’s wideband architecture supports frequencies from 150 to 2700 MHz, providing access for any public safety or cellular frequency, including FirstNet’s 700 MHz LTE. In addition, UNItivity uses a streamlined design that includes just two main components: a primary/secondary hub, and a thin, ceiling-mounted remote unit, so installation and maintenance is less expensive than with other, more complex DAS systems. Zinwave also offers a NEMA-certified waterproof enclosure for remote units that protect them from water, smoke and other environmental factors.

As an all-fiber system, Zinwave’s UNItivity solution is an ideal choice for large facilities like airports, hospitals, universities and hotels because spare dark fiber is often available, saving on installation costs and cabling can extend for more than a dozen kilometers while delivering uniformly high performance at each antenna location. UNItivity also delivers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) because it natively handles a wide range of current and future public safety frequency bands, so expensive equipment upgrades aren’t needed when new bands go into service.
