In-building wireless technology provider Advanced RF Technologies (ADRF), announced the deployment of its ADXV Medium Power Remote (MPR) distributed antenna system in Mexico’s Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR).
In a release, ADRF said that the DAS to be implemented at this Mexican airport will deliver wireless connectivity to five million passengers each year.
“Puerto Vallarta airport is one of Mexico’s busiest airports and an important gateway for international tourism,” said Gabriel Guevara, sales director of ADRF. “We are excited to enable better wireless service, ensuring each and every passenger can successfully use all digital tools at their disposal for airport wayfinding, trip planning, ground transport arrangements and other critical needs that are reliant on advanced mobile connectivity support.”
The system design is a three-sector configuration with 15 MPRs that provide coverage for the entire airport including arrivals, departures, ticketing, baggage claims and all secure areas. The DAS supports the frequency bands used by all three major carriers in Mexico, including 850 MHz 3G WCDMA, 1900 MHz GSM & WCDMA, 2100 MHz LTE, and the 700 APT LTE frequency band, which was crucial for the neutral-host when selecting a system for the airport, ADRF said.
ADRF’s modular ADXV solution also supports the 2500 MHz FDD and CBRS bands for higher capacity needs, the company said.
“It was crucial for us to not only install a modern solution that can support the needs of the airport staff and customers today, but also address anticipated future requirements for robust wireless connectivity,” Guevara added. “The ADXV’s modularity ensures we can continue to upgrade to new bands, add new carriers or increase coverage as needed.”
Last month, ADRF unveiled a suite of 5G wireless products, including millimeter wave repeaters, a digital distributed antenna system and millimeter wave support for its ADXV Series DAS.
The firm said that these solutions will enable carriers, enterprises, and building owners to provide 5G in-building wireless connectivity required to support Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Massive IoT (mMTC), Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC), and other data-intensive digital applications for buildings of different sizes.
