Microlab Passives: A SMART Approach to Public Safety - Inside Towers
Since 1949, Microlab has been designing and manufacturing RF and microwave distribution components and systems known worldwide for their superior performance. Microlab products, assembled in the USA, are considered the “gold standard” in the industry and, after 70 years plus, it is still innovating to influence the future of telecommunications. As a part of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., Microlab is one of several business segments that support the wireless industry and specifically public safety initiatives.
One solution leading the way for the next generation of wireless implementation is Microlab’s SMART (System Monitor Alarm Report Technology) Passives System, comprised of a SMART Gateway and a network of SMART Couplers, which enables real-time performance monitoring of public safety distributed antenna system (DAS) structured cabling, RF components, and antennas deep into a building. With the SMART Passives System, Microlab customers can benefit from faster troubleshooting and reduced time to DAS restoration in the event of a DAS failure. Real-time monitoring with the SMART Passives System is your DAS watchdog.
Achieve Deployment Efficiencies with Scalable Shared Infrastructure – Connected Real Estate Magazine
With increased network densification for capacity and coverage benefits driving convergence to neutral host shared infrastructure, network owners need to install networks with high bandwidth capacity as well as scalability for new bands or mobile network operators to be added to the site in future. The rising utilization and allocation of mid-band spectrum for capacity means the neutral host infrastructure should provide a viable route to leverage future band allocations for capacity improvement. The site not only needs to be upgradable, but, also should be able to achieve that in a feasible and cost effective manner while meeting performance metrics. The nice thing is that neutral host network designers and owners do not have to tackle these obstacles alone. This article will describe how to achieve efficient shared infrastructure deployments by taking advantage of modular point of interface solution.
Ultra-Wide Bandwidth Solutions for Optimum Coverage and Capacity - Inside Towers
Microlab, a Wireless Telecom Group Company founded in 1949, is a leading component and integrated solutions partner specializing in RF products that enable signal distribution and deployment of distributed antenna systems (DAS), wireless base stations and small cell networks. As 5G continues to drive infrastructure development and network densification, engineers are challenged to ensure better system performance but in a more cost-effective manner than previous generations. Wideband solutions allow designers to maximize the utilization of available spectrum assets, which is pivotal in an ever-evolving wireless landscape.
Real-time Monitoring for In-Building Public Safety Wireless Networks – Connected Real Estate Magazine
It is imperative for first responders to effectively maintain reliable, wide-area public safety radio communications during emergency situations. A distributed antenna system (DAS) for emergency communications enables first responders to have high-quality (90-99%) radio coverage between general and critical areas within a building. Public safety DAS is mandated by many municipalities for new buildings around the country, as defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Fire Code (IFC). Without real-time DAS monitoring and alarming, a public safety DAS may not be ready for life safety radio traffic. Microlab’s SMART (System Monitor Alarm Report Technology) Passives System enables real-time performance monitoring of cabling, RF components, and antennas deep into a building, alleviating the risk of poor network performance and radio coverage.
Microlab Contributes to The Next Generation of Wireless Infrastructure - Inside Towers
Since 1949, Microlab has been designing and manufacturing RF and Microwave distribution components and systems known worldwide for their superior performance. Microlab products are considered the “gold standard” in the industry, and the company is already contributing to the next generation (5G) of wireless infrastructure, letting their past expertise influence the future of telecommunication. As part of Wireless Telecom Group Inc, Microlab is one of several business segments that support the wireless industry for 4G and 5G, as well as private LTE deployments.
Address the Challenges of 5G Network Deployment – Connected Real Estate Magazine
5G is finally becoming a reality, and network designers are facing greater challenges than ever before as they consider how their networks will be deployed. The networks not only have to achieve higher system performance, but it must be accomplished in a more cost-effective manner. The race to reduce time-to-market means the network components must be available to support an aggressive deployment schedule. In addition, the required densification means solutions must be smaller and lower weight for greater concealment and subsequently quicker approval for the deployment. The good news is that network designers do not have to address these challenges alone. This article will describe how to overcome these challenges by partnering with the right network component provider.
Preparing for 5G Deployment – Microwaves & RF
Manufacturing wireless infrastructure equipment has never been a game for the faint-hearted. But the so-called 5G revolution has made the game even tougher, riskier, and more confusing for the designers who must define and create products in a market where the technology—and their customers’ deployment plans— are still in a state of rapid evolution.
With so many factors in play, designing products that can satisfy wireless operators’ requirements involves keeping a close eye on the state of the technology, the state of the market, and how those factors are shaping their ever-evolving deployment strategies. Hopefully, this snapshot of the industry, and the dominant issues we’ve extracted from it, will provide a little guidance on the features and capabilities your products must have in order to earn a place in carriers’ 5G deployment plans.
