Distributed antenna system (DAS) requirements are shifting: sectorization schemes change, 5G dynamic spectrum sharing on existing bands are being utilized, SISO/MIMO approaches are modified, and new bands for 5G and CBRS are being deployed. Supporting large, high-rise buildings, or campus-style deployments, Corning’s DAS solutions can manage them all. Our modular DAS system solutions provide cost-optimized, multiband coverage and capacity support for multiple operators, with a single, simplified fiber optic infrastructure to end the rip-and-replace upgrade cycle. Composite cabling, composed of both copper conductors for power and optical fibers for data signal, can be used as a forward-facing transport to enhance 4G today, and carry 5G tomorrow, while at the same time reducing installation costs and deployment time. With auto-discovery of all network components and built-in system testing, both DAS setup and commissioning are simplified. And with the availability of slide-in amplifiers for new bands and the ability to add MIMO for more capacity and to re-sectorize as needed, our platforms leave plenty of room for growth and serviceability. Stay connected today and tomorrow with our DAS system solutions, providing services for a range of LTE and 5G frequencies and technologies
Corning’s DAS network solutions, formerly Mobile Access Networks, provide flexible in-building multi-operator cellular RF and network digital coverage solutions based on a fiber optic transport backbone.
The optical infrastructure is easily deployable via a wide range of off the shelf or field terminated composite cables and advanced end-to-end equipment. Easy to design, plug-and-play connectors significantly reduce installation cost and deployment time. Corning DAS systems are an ideal fit for a wide range of large, high-rise buildings, or campus-style deployments. It generates significant CapEx savings and OpEx savings through the use of sophisticated management software and an infrastructure that is simple to deploy and efficient in usage.
Dynamic software group management allows precise service distribution control to meet changing density needs and provides further savings by enabling sharing of equipment at various levels for service providers. Radio source agnostic remote units can be used as network extenders. Ethernet capability with dedicated fiber link for Wi-Fi offload brings a higher level of granularity and support for devices and applications with very high-speed requirements.
