Microlab and Ranplan Wireless announce Microlab as a preferred OEM partner under the Ranplan Wireless’ Precision Design Initiative.
Microlab introduces the MCC200 Series Modular Carrier Conditioner, an IP67 rated modular point of interface (POI) solution for outdoor small cell and D-RAN deployments. To provide flexibility to any mobile network operator (MNO) or neutral host deployment, the MCC200 Series offers an outdoor rated modular system that can accommodate any LTE communication band up to 6 GHz. This new platform expands the set of modular POI offerings introduced by Microlab in 2018, providing the same type of innovative flexibility for outdoor deployments which require upgrade and reconfiguration as capacity and bandwidth requirements evolve over time.
Microlab today introduces the SMART Passives System, an innovative, patent pending solution for monitoring transmission lines, components, and antennas for in-building Emergency Services Communications Systems. These capabilities are enabled by Microlab’s new System Monitor, Alarm, Report Technology (SMART), first being deployed in the SMART Coupler. The SMART Coupler consists of a specially designed broadband, passive, directional coupler for 130 – 960 MHz combined with active, diagnostic tools for system monitoring with failure detection and isolation capabilities. The real-time monitoring capabilities that the SMART Coupler provides will ensure that Public Safety DAS owners can depend on the operation of their critical communication systems.
Microlab today demonstrated the world’s first radio frequency (RF) coupler with embedded signal monitoring intelligence. The patent-pending smart coupler capitalizes on Internet of Things (IoT) technology for remote sensing and reporting. Designed for in-building public safety wireless networks, the smart coupler will be revolutionary in terms of monitoring a passive communications network of RF coaxial cables, components, and antennas. The technology will enable public safety authorities, building owners, and system’s integrators the ability to continuously supervise in real-time their emergency first responder, in-building network’s performance.
