MINNEAPOLIS -- ADC (NASDAQ:ADCT -News) (www.adc.com) today announced that its distributed antenna systems (DAS) solutions are supporting new LTE network rollouts by Verizon Wireless. Already, more than 100 InterReach and FlexWave™ systems have been deployed in major stadiums, urban core areas, and other locations such as the New Meadowlands Stadium and Denver International Airport, where Verizon is rolling out LTE services. ADC is a preferred provider of 700 MHz single-input single-output (SISO) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) solutions for Verizon, and its systems are forming a critical part of LTE service rollouts across the United States.

With a requirement to deliver multi-megabit data services to every user, LTE services demand a new micro-cellular network approach that brings the signal much closer to the subscriber. ADC’s DAS solutions are a highly efficient and cost-effective way to deliver LTE services because they extend LTE signals out from centralized base stations using highly reliable, low-maintenance antennas. Rather than placing femtocells or picocells in thousands of locations, wireless service providers can reduce backhaul and operational expenses by extending signals out from centralized base stations. And rather than having to run a complete set of cabling for each service to be provided as with other DAS systems, ADC DAS solutions support multiple protocols with a single run of low-cost fiber optic and CATV cabling.

“The ADC DAS architecture is ideally suited for LTE rollouts because it uses easily deployed antennas to extend services inside buildings and in urban cores,” said John Spindler, vice president of product management for ADC’s Network Solutions Business Unit. “Our systems have been certified for 4G networks by multiple wireless service providers, and they are being deployed at a rapid pace as these operators light up LTE services in new markets.”
