SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland -- TE Connectivity announced today the FlexWave Prism IRU (Indoor Remote Unit), a new indoor version of its popular FlexWave Prism Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that brings mobile coverage and capacity to the subscriber in enterprises, college campuses, and urban/suburban macro networks. FlexWave Prism IRU uses rack-mountable, indoor remote units and works with coax cable direct to service antennas, so it is ideal for passive indoor wireless system upgrades or venues that want to deploy a system quickly by leveraging existing cabling.

FlexWave Prism IRU offers the same key benefits as all FlexWave Prism products, including support for 2G/3G/4G services with SISO or MIMO implementations, digital simulcast, a 26db optical budget, digital fibre transport and high power amplifiers. By using high power amplifiers, the Prism IRU solution requires fewer elements to provide comparable coverage relative to other like-architecture solutions in the market. The Remote Units are placed in wiring closets, outdoor huts or street furniture to make it easy and cost-effective to deploy in places where ceiling space is limited or where construction is time or cost prohibitive.

“FlexWave Prism IRU allows users to deploy our active DAS in new configurations to enable faster, lower-cost deployments, especially when existing coax cabling is present,” said Chris Jurasek, vice president and general manager, Wireless and Services at TE. “This product greatly expands the applications for FlexWave Prism in venues around the world.”
