CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, and Cheytec Telecommunications, have announced a partnership to provide radio frequency signal sources for distributed antenna system (DAS) and C-RAN antenna system deployments.
A key challenge for in-building wireless service is the timing and complexity of obtaining and connecting to service providers’ networks. “CommScope’s advanced C-RAN and distributed antenna systems, combined with Cheytec’s operator relationships and pre-arranged service provider signal sources, enable a faster and smoother turn-up for our customers and a simpler path for future upgrades.” said Mike Shumate, CommScope’s vice president of business operations for distributed coverage and capacity solutions. “Through this partnership, CommScope and Cheytec will help enterprises and building owners meet growing customer and tenant demands for mobile bandwidth.”T
In-building wireless coverage is increasingly perceived as a utility alongside water and electricity – a default expectation of employees and customers. According to Mobile Experts LLC, the portion of DAS installations funded by enterprises and building owners will nearly double over the next five years. As the market share leader in in-building wireless systems, CommScope has pioneered digital DAS and C-RAN antenna systems that deliver optimal mobile performance combined with attractive deployment economics. Partnering with Cheytec further accelerates deployments by eliminating the dependency on the service provider.
“We are increasingly dependent on our cell phones, and that is driving our decisions on where we go, where we work and where we live. It has never been more necessary for building owners and enterprises to provide full indoor cellular connectivity if they want tenants and employees to come and stay,” said Jarrett Bluth, Cheytec’s chief executive officer. “At Cheytec, we guarantee the carrier signal source. CommScope has a great market presence, and our partnership is exciting as we expand the capabilities of both our companies and provide a strong value offering.”
