Las Vegas, 1 April 2009 RFS (Radio Frequency Systems), the wireless infrastructure specialist, is showing a range of updated and new wireless infrastructure solutions plus support services at the International CTIA Wireless 2009 event in Las Vegas.

The wireless industry, says Larry Heisler, RFS’ Director of Marketing and Product Management, is at a key milestone in its evolution, with many carriers working hard to prepare for their first trials of LTE (Long Term Evolution), a technology that will power most networks well into the next decade and beyond.

“While LTE and the advanced services it brings to all categories of users will be one of the key themes of this year’s CTIA event, we should not lose sight of the fact that existing technologies, such as 2G and 3G, will still need to be supported for many years to come,” he said.

“This is why we are keen to show to our carrier customers the variety of new and updated wireless technologies that we have developed to assist them in efficiently migrating to the benefits of LTE, while still supporting their legacy customers,” he added.

According to Heisler, efficiency does not just mean looking at cost and logistical issues involved with network overlays and rollouts. As important as those issues are, the industry also needs to look at the environmental impacts, which are another central theme of this year’s CTIA show.

It’s against this backdrop, says Heisler, that RFS has developed its range of wideband base station antennas, diplexers and other cell site technologies to support carriers in their quest for a cost-effective rollout of LTE across North America.
Products in focus

RFS has developed a range of newly developed LTE solutions, as well as a family of 700MHz products, all of which are designed with both backwards and future compatibility in mind.

The LTE solutions include a range of LTE migration products that work with the base station and support multiple frequencies.

Without these RFS products carriers may have to build many new and expensive cell sites or rent more tower space.

RFS’ LTE migration products can replace existing antennas with dual or multi-band units, but with the important feature of using little or no extra cell tower space.

Indoor coverage is also being catered for with a comprehensive family of indoor propagation technologies designed for small, medium and large-scale wireless deployments, ranging from office buildings and atriums, all the way through the major campus and airport applications.

The company’s ClearFill Star, Space 1 and ClearFill Space 2 wireless indoor solutions offer carriers and site installers a complete range of flexible options that help ensure wireless users receive the same service quality they have come to expect in outdoor city situations.

The ClearFill solution-set consists of a modular mix of passive and active technologies that include a range of options for harnessing and distributing RF signals inside buildings, internal open spaces and tunnels.
