TE Connectivity Distributed Antenna System Provides Coverage in Argentina Soccer Stadium
TE Connectivity’s (News - Alert) InterReach Unison distributed antenna system will deliver clear and consistent mobile services along with increased call capacity in the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes in Cordoba, Argentina.
The distributed antenna system or DAS has been deployed to provide coverage in the soccer stadium which has 57,000-seats.
“TE Connectivity’s vast international experience with DAS in stadiums made us the right candidate for this job,” said Alan Clarke, president of TE’s Wireless business unit. “The InterReach Unison (News - Alert) DAS system’s ease of deployment and outstanding performance allowed us to deploy a world-class system within a tight timeframe.”
The antenna system was put in service during the World Cup qualifying game between Argentina and Paraguay on September 9, 2012.
Claro (News - Alert), a mobile service provider in Argentina and the sponsor of the Argentina national soccer team was desirous to implement state-of-the-art facilities in the stadium to cover the event and hence it commissioned the provision of uninterrupted 2G and 3G mobile services in the 1900 MHz band.
On being contracted for the DAS project, Claro selected TE Connectivity in view of previous positive experiences. The InterReach Unison DAS product was also easily deployable within the available two-month period before the match was to take place.
“TE Connectivity worked with us as a team to get this deployment done and working flawlessly on time,” said Horacio Vigano, chief of new technology deployments for Claro. “We couldn’t have accomplished this without them.”
Recently, TE Connectivity designed a new family of higher power remote antenna units for its InterReach Spectrum and InterReach Fusion distributed antenna systems (DAS).
The DAS will let users extend wireless services throughout a building, multiple buildings, or campus. This will serve current and emerging wireless networks and can deliver edge-to-edge bandwidth and multi-band flexibility.
TE Connectivity’s Wireless Business Unit serves wireless, wireline, cable and enterprise networks. Its distributed antenna systems are suitable for use within a building and in small cell networks. The company’s solutions optimize mobile service delivery networks and suit new mobile applications besides multi-vendor, multi-technology and multi-service deployments.
