Distributed Antenna System
Distributed antenna system (DAS) requirements are shifting: sectorization schemes change, new frequencies on existing bands are being utilized, SISO/MIMO approaches are modified, and new bands are being deployed.
Corning MA1000 DAS provides 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 can be used as a forward-facing transport to enhance 4G today, and 5G tomorrow, while at the same time reducing installation costs and deployment time.
The MA1000 provides enterprise level indoor coverage for a wide range of wireless services over a single broadband infrastructure.
MA1000 is a single operator, multiband system based on combining a number of services, voice and data, and distributing them to each remote location through a common antenna infrastructure.
Wireless RF services are bidirectionally transmitted between the capacity source (BTS/BDA) and remote locations using low-loss fiber and broadband coax.
Accommodates up to four wireless voice and data services including WLAN, eliminating the need for separate overlay networks. Supported wireless voice and data services and technologies include: TDMA, CDMA, WCDMA, GSM, and LTE, and services such as Cellular, PCS, AWS1/3, and iDEN.
With its modular packaging, the MA1000 enables new wireless services to be added easily and cost effectively without disruption to work spaces or existing services.
Advanced signal handling and management ensures optimal performance for all services involved in a multi-operator environment.
Proactive, centralized end-to-end monitoring and management of MA1000 equipment and RF signals.
Single-operator, multi-service across common infrastructure; supports multi-mode fiber.
Local and remote web management via the SC-450 controller.
RHU: Supports two RF services over a common fiber/coax antenna infrastructure
MA1000 TSX: Supports three RF services over a common fiber/coax antenna infrastructure
MA1000 QSX: Supports four RF services over a common fiber/coax antenna infrastructure
Radio Interface Unit (RIU): The RIU conditions the RF Downlink signals from base-transceiver stations (BTS) or bidirectional amplifiers (BDA) provided by the wireless service providers (WSPs), ensuring a constant level of RF before passing them on to the base units. RF Uplink signals from subscribers are received from the Base Units and transported back to the BTS or BDA.
Base Unit (BU): The BU converts the RF downlink signals received from the RIU to an optical signal for transport on single-mode or multimode fiber to the remote hub units (RHU), which are located at the remote locations. Uplink optical signals from subscribers are received from the RHU and converted back to RF before passing them on to the RIU.
System Controller: The system controller enables remote management and control of all MA1000 elements from a single location. Refer to the system controller spec sheet for more information.
Remote Location Equipment
Quad-Service Package (QSX): The MA1000 QSX offers a simple and cost-effective method for delivering a dedicated single carrier, four RF service deployment across a common fiber/coax antenna infrastructure. It consists of a single RHU with two Add-on units mounted on a bracket.
Tri-Service Package (TSX): The MA1000 TSX offers a simple and cost-effective method for delivering a dedicated single carrier, three RF service deployment across a common fiber/coax antenna infrastructure. It consists of a single RHU and an Add-on mounted on a bracket.
Add-On (AO): The add-on is a single service unit that is coupled with an RHU to support an additional RF service. The add-on receives filtered RF signal from the RHU and amplifies it for transport across the broadband coax.
Remote Hub Unit (RHU): The RHU is a service-specific module that performs optical to RF conversion on signals received from the BU. The signals are then filtered and amplified for transport across broadband coax to the antenna. Similarly uplink signals from the antenna are converted to optical signals before being transmitted back to the BU. Each RHU supports up to two RF services.
Note: For RIU ordering information, refer to relevant RIU (i.e., RIU-IM, RIU-4, and RIU-12) datasheet.
