TE Connectivity Ltd. (TEL - Analyst Report) has recently deployed its InterReach Fusion distributed antenna system (DAS) at Copenhagen Airport in Kastrup, Scandinavia to provide mobile wireless coverage for both its passengers and employees.
The company partnered with Denmark-based Caverion A/S to carry out this deployment. The system that will be providing 2G, 3G and 4G services, is owned and managed by four telecom operators based in Denmark, namely TDC, Hi3G and TT-netværket, which is a united infrastructure company by telecom majors’ Telia and Telenor. The installation of the DAS across the airport terminals is done using as many as 83 remote antennas, supporting hubs as well as with both fiber and cable television (CATV) wiring.
The DAS will serve the mobile users in the frequency bands of 900/1800 MHz, 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz while also providing Long Term Evolution (LTE) Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (LTE MIMO) services for enhancing the coverage.
The Copenhagen airport, being the largest in Scandinavia, was in dire need of reliable interior mobile coverage to meet the requirements of its increasing passenger and employee base. The airport’s 1,700 employees are presently serving over 24 million passengers in a year.
This system will enable travelers to avail the mobile wireless services and will ensure that airport officials are able to communicate critical information like changes in flight schedules to passengers.
The company’s network solutions segment is one of the world's major suppliers of infrastructure components and systems in the telecommunications and energy markets. Its InterReach Fusion is a comprehensive solution designed to provide state-of-the-art interior wireless solutions at large public venues. TE Connectivity’s past experience regarding such deployment poises it favorably to handle this project as well.
