ORLAND PARK, Ill. -- Andrew Corporation's (NASDAQ:ANDW) new EOCell(TM) RF Over Fiber solutions provide efficient transport of wideband RF signals over optical fiber. Applications for EOCell include wireless distribution networks needed for "base station hotels," airports, campuses, road tunnels, and metro systems. Essentially, an EOCell system will convert RF signals to fiber optic signals for long distance transmission and then convert them back to RF signals at a remote location. Because a typical EOCell system requires only one base station site to support multiple cells, its benefits include the reduction of recurring back-haul costs, and simplified zoning approvals. A system can also be used in multi-provider deployments for even greater cost savings. "We are extremely excited about EOCell's potential for cost-effective base station hotelling for both single carrier and shared networks," said Matt Melester, Director of In-Building and Wireless Solutions, Andrew Corporation. "EOCell's advantage is that it carries much, much more information over far, far longer distances." Andrew Corp.
