Advanced RF Technologies (ADRF) announced that it has joined the Accelerate Program offered by Cheytec Telecommunications to be able to provide wireless operator certified RF signal sources and base stations at the DASPedia event last week in Irvine, California.
The Accelerate Program by Cheytec allows enterprises and building owners to license signal source equipment for carrier use that was previously only available directly to wireless operators. For OEMs like ADRF, it opens avenues to new real estate leadership and property management groups.
The program offers current and future support for both LAA and CBRS respectively, which use unlicensed spectrum.
SOLiD, Cheytec Also Partner Up
In January of this year, SOLiD and Cheytec Telecommunications joined in a partnership to provide enterprise customers and building owners a complete in-building wireless solution including both RF signal source and a DAS.
Enterprises, and commercial real estate operators face shared challenges when it comes to in-building wireless connectivity. In-building platforms, while beginning to address the expanding demand for bandwidth and connectivity, in many cases are limited to a single carrier, without a clear upgrade path to future technologies. The financial models for investing in in-building cellular solutions are not effective as on-premise gear can be expensive, not designed for buildings of the future, and are underfunded by wireless service providers who have budgetary constraints. And ultimately, tenants and visitors still experience poor or no connectivity within their workplaces.
The Cheytec-SOLiD solution addresses these concerns. Enterprises and building owners can now deploy the combined Cheytec-SOLiD solution with base station equipment and a DAS that is fully tested for operator connectivity, designed to support today’s building environment and with a clear path to future enhancements.
