CommScope to showcase all-digital C-RAN antenna at MWC 2018

Era enables operators to deploy a centralised headend that serves multiple buildings, or even to tap capacity from the operator’s existing centralised radio access network (C-RAN) hubs
Driving down costs and barriers to in-building wireless implementation will be critical for supporting the emerging demand for connected smart buildings, says Kyung Mun from Mobile Experts.

CommScope has introduced CommScope Era - an all-digital C-RAN antenna system. It enables operators to deploy a centralised headend that serves multiple buildings, or even to tap capacity from the operator’s existing centralised radio access network (C-RAN) hubs.

Era’s Wide-area Integration Node (WIN) resides in the C-RAN hub and routes baseband capacity to a distribution point within the served building or campus. Era allocates baseband capacity where it is needed while reducing the amount of onsite head-end equipment and the amount of fibre needed for signal transport by up to 90 percent.

“We have invested heavily to create an all-digital platform architecture that upends the economics of in-building wireless and ushers in a new era and standard for distributed antenna systems,” said Matt Melester, SVP, distributed coverage and capacity solutions, CommScope.

“CommScope Era will be a key enabler for network densification in LTE Advanced, Gigabit LTE and 5G.”

“New systems like CommScope Era respond to operators’ needs for options that will make in-building wireless more affordable for building owners and commercial real estate companies,” said Kyung Mun, principal analyst, Mobile Experts.

“Driving down costs and barriers to in-building wireless implementation will be critical for supporting the emerging demand for connected smart buildings.”

CommScope will show the new CommScope Era C-RAN antenna system in its stand 2J30 at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Hall 2.
