The system offers in-building connectivity supporting three mobile carriers
HALO by Mobile RF, a U.S. provider of turnkey wireless real estate sector solutions used solutions from compatriot firm JMA Wireless, a specialist in wireless communications solutions, for the deployment of an in-building wireless network at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta-Midtown.
The in-building wireless network has been deployed using JMA Wireless’ multi-carrier, multi-band TEKO distributed antenna system (DAS). This system will enable mobile communications throughout the 500,000-square-feet facility.
“We have three national carriers participating on this high capacity 4G/LTE DAS to deliver the best mobile experience to the Crowne Plaza Hotel and their guests,” said Tony Schaffer, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer at HALO by Mobile RF
The JMA TEKO DAS will provide in-building cellular coverage and capacity with two sectors, supporting three mobile operators, and the 700, 850, 1900, 2100, 2300, and 2500 bands. In addition, this platform is prepared to offer coverage for 5G as commercial deployments roll out in 2019.
The solution enables connectivity between the remote units (RUs) and the master unit (MU) with a single optical fiber per remote unit, resulting in installation savings of at least 50%, JMA Wireless said.
The TEKO DAS provides cellular coverage and capacity for indoor and outdoor environments. One of its main components, the rack-mounted master unit, combines different high-speed wireless technologies, such as LTE and UMTS, with multiple bands to serve the various needs of the environment. The TEKO DAS can introduce new services or enhance existing technology without any major system upgrades.
“We are thrilled that HALO selected our TEKO DAS platform for this project,” said Todd Landry, Corporate Vice President of Product and Market Strategy at JMA Wireless. “Together, our teams bring unprecedented expertise in the hospitality market, ensuring the Crowne Plaza will provide the best in wireless coverage for its guests.”
