RF Solutions

Our insatiable demand for mobile data and services has resulted in exciting new RF technologies such as MIMO (Multiple Input – Multiple Output) being deployed to more efficiently use the limited RF mobile spectrum (spectral efficiency). MIMO involves multiple antennas and the simultaneous reuse of radio channels on different antennas to multiply the data capacity of mobile networks.

The potential of MIMO technology is unquestioned however it has raised important issues that RF planners and engineers need to address to deploy high performance cellular networks that gain the maximum benefit from MIMO.

These issues and the increasing demand for data has resulted in a drive towards smaller cells, lower PIM (Passive InterModulation) passive RF elements, specialised antennas and RF infrastructure, and more comprehensive RF and mobile data analysis and network optimisation tools.

Indoor/Outdoor DAS Solutions

KATHREIN - Passive and active DAS solutions


Passive DAS

Today, everyone is talking about active DAS, allowing flexible capacity adaption and easy network modification. Depending on the size of the venue and the specific application, it is still often a more cost effective solution to use a passive DAS. Although passive DAS are relatively unflexible to retroactive changes in the system setup, the clear advantages are the simple design, low material costs, low maintenance efforts, high reliability and easy coverage deployment. Hence in venues without significant change in requirements over time the use of a passive DAS may often be reasonable.
With more than 3 million sold indoor products and more than 20 years of experience in passive indoor systems, Kathrein is a trustable partner for future investments in the indoor sector.

ROSENBERGER - Passive and active DAS solutions

Passive and Active DAS Solutions

With the increasing voice traffic, data and images via wireless mobile devices, also generates demand for signal coverage solutions indoors especially in large commercial projects such as shopping malls, condominiums, hotels, restaurants, airports and more.

The Rosenberger Domex has solutions that span the entire project design, with turn-key delivery capacity (site survey, design, installation, testing: VSWR, Walk Test and PIM, and at the end of the preparation of the final draft as-built ) and also supplying equipment to the activation of the indoor coverage network of the passive components as complete for the antenna distribution system, calledDAS – Distributed antenna System.

Rosenberger DAS solutions cover GSM, WCDMA, LTE and Wi-Fi applications ranging from 698 MHz to 2700MHz. They comprise of fiber optic master and remote unit repeaters (for active DAS), point-of-interface (POI) signal combining racks, IBS antennas, passive components (splitters, couplers, hybrids, attenuators), fiber optic cable assemblies, and RF coaxial cables and jumpers.

RADiAnt, which stands for Rosenberger Active DAS with integrated Antenna, is our next generation distributed antenna system (DAS) platform designed to address the requirements of LTE-Advanced. It features a distributed architecture of compact remote radio units that supports multiple mobile operators for neutral hosting applications, multiple frequency bands and technologies – 4G LTE, 3G WCDMA, and 2G GSM/GPRS. The Integrated Remote Unit (IRU) features a slim integrated antenna along with a hybrid DC-Fiber feed for ease of installation and eliminates the need for traditional passive DAS components and unsightly or unwieldy coaxial feeder cables. With “Connect and Go” simplicity, the RADiAnt solution can be designed and installed in a fraction of the time compared with conventional Active/Hybrid DAS solutions. RADiAnt is also supported by Rosenberger’s Operations Maintenance Center (OMC) which provides remote NMS/EMS monitoring, control and configuration capabilities.

In many scenarios, a combination of traditional passive DAS and the high performance RADiAnt solutions are needed, such as using cost effective passive DAS for basement carpark coverage and the RADiAnt for robust high data rate mobile coverage in high rise offices and capacity hotspots. The SMART DAS solution can address these multiple needs on a single DAS platform. In addition to simultaneously supporting both DAS platforms, the SMART DAS can also provide dynamic capacity routing for temporary capacity surge in any area within the DAS network. The modular structure also provides capacity scalability and future proof on a “pay as you need” add on. Off-air repeaters can also be used as a cost effective solution to implement a small DAS system for basement car park coverage , or a small Pico repeater for a small office or shop, or in places where the traffic does not justify the use of a base station as the signal source.

Rosenberger DAS systems have been proven to provide robust mobile connectivity and have been successfully deployed in airports, metros, stadiums, shopping centres, and campuses throughout the world.

Please contact Maser for more information on Rosenberger’s range of DAS solutions.

Non-FIM RF Components

Some Australia mobile network operators are moving towards a Non-FIM (Non Free Issue Material) model where network build service contractors are now being tasked with sourcing the RF components (e.g. Antennas, Jumpers, Cables, Connectors, DC Stops etc) required for mobile site installations and upgrades. Previously these items were all stocked and supplied by the network operators.

Maser is leveraging our resources and their year’s of experience at supplying Australian mobile operators to provide the widest range of Non-FIM components to network build service vendors and their sub-contractors.

An increasing number of our RF solutions are now part of our Non-FIM range.

Cable & Connector Solutions

JMA - Low PIM Compression Connectors


Many of the largest mobile network operators are turning to JMA’s unique universal compression connectors, which utilize a patented active compression technology that eliminates PIM, installs in 1 minute and guarantees long term reliability.  With these robust solutions, MNOs are able to significantly lower operational costs yet still meet the growing coverage and capacity needs.

“It takes only hours to train a new recruit to install JMA Wireless universal compression connectors and the results are outstanding. With traditional connectors it takes several weeks to achieve the same level of training and due to the nature of the connection you just can’t guarantee an acceptable result.” – – Onsite Industry Contractor
