OCC® showcases 4G Cellular Distribution System
OCC's expertise and experience in resolving in-building wireless coverage problems can make missed calls and poor data rates a thing of the past.
(Virtual Press Office) Optical Cable Corporation (OCC®) is proud to showcase their patented 4G Cellular Distribution System (CDS) at the 2012 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition. OCC's Cellular Distribution System is a wireless enhancement product designed to resolve low cellular signal strength issues inside buildings.
Designed as a complete kit, the CDS system provides everything needed to mitigate 4G communications dead zones, while also supporting legacy 2G and 3G services with a simplistic hardware approach in a standard 4RU rack mount chassis. The system is based on a donor antenna architecture, where an antenna is placed at an external location to capture the available signal from the provider's tower, delivers it to a rack-mounted system below which boosts signal strength, then redistributes the signal throughout the building where internal antennas are placed.
According to Stephen Porach, Manager, Business Development-Enterprise Solutions, each CDS system covers approximately 80,000 square feet for an open spaced building, and 40,000 square feet for a divided structure, dependent on outdoor signal and antennae cable lengths. Multiple systems can be tethered to increase coverage.
"In a typical scenario," adds Porach, "Application of CDS to a facility gives immediate improvement to cellular performance throughout the building. Improvement in signal strength at the mobile device can be dramatic, bringing signal strength inside the facility to the same level or even greater as that experienced at the rooftop donor antenna location. In our own manufacturing facility 4G data rates were measured at approximately 18 MB/s, where no 4G service was available whatsoever, prior to the CDS installation."
The CDS product line also includes several accessories for the best possible enhancement of in-building wireless service. These antenna and cabling accessories have been tested and evaluated explicitly for use with the CDS system, to ensure the CDS rack mount unit, cabling and antenna components all function to the highest system level performance.
