A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is increasingly being used by service providers to create a small cell infrastructure that will relieve the burden on the macro network, especially in venues such as stadiums, convention centers, hospitals and college campuses where smartphone use is particularly concentrated. Westell’s DAS Interface Panels are located between the base transceiver station (BTS) and the headend of the DAS, where RF signals are converted to optical signals. Carriers must ensure the RF power levels are appropriately adjusted for the DAS headend equipment.
Westell’s DAS Interface Panels provide the proper power levels for the downstream DAS equipment. Both transmit and receive power levels can be monitored and adjusted without disconnecting from the BTS or the DAS headend. Westell is offering four models of DAS Interface Panels:
- A90-DAS850D-D: Cellular Band
- A90-DAS1900D-D: PCS Band
- A90-DAS700DMI-D: 700Mhz Bands
- A90-DAS2100DMI-D: AWS Band
