August 18, 2016 — By any yardstick the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro has been a success. And behind the scenes, wireless has helped keep the games organized. Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) provided wireless communication systems for several main venues with active DAS system equipment and passive components. In addition RFS is managing the project.
The systems supplied by RFS provided indoor coverage in the IBC (International Broadcast Center) and MPC (Main Press Center) in Olympic Park, Engenhão Stadium, and the Rio Centro Convention Center, as well as coverage for the Maracanã Stadium outdoor arena.
RFS supplied equipment for an active DAS solution with Cobham Wireless plus passive components including cables, indoor antennas, diplexers, combiners, and low- and high-frequency stadium antennas. RFS’ HYBRIFLEX was used to connect master to remote units in the active DAS systems. RFS also was responsible for a full deployment including RF design, project management, field supervision, commissioning and tests.
