Stay on top of the trends in siting macrocells, microcells and DAS, whether it is a greenfield development or on rooftops or on street furniture. Our panel of experts will fill you in on the best practices in siting on federal properties, churches and schools.

Networking Solution for 4G/LTE Small Cells

By The Editors of AGL

Vitesse Semiconductor has expanded its Serval Carrier Ethernet switch engine portfolio with the six-port Serval Lite (VSC7416). It integrates Vitesse’s IEEE1588v2 VeriTime technology, already adopted by customers comprising 60 percent market share in microwave backhaul and 75 percent market share in millimeter-wave backhaul. This latest device is optimized for small cell applications, delivering rich Carrier Ethernet features at 75 percent lower power and 50 percent lower BOM cost than competitive options. Serval Lite meets carrier-grade small cell backhaul needs, integrating Carrier Ethernet features needed to support advanced packet-based services in a compact, low-power package. At less than 1.5 watts power, Serval Lite simplifies thermal design, significantly reducing equipment costs in small form factor outdoor deployments. www.maximintegrated.com
