Zinwave named a finalist for the 2014 International TETRA Awards
Zinwave distributed antenna system (DAS) supports ALL professional mobile radio (PMR) standards
Zinwave Ltd, a global supplier of in-building Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) for cellular and public safety coverage, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Best TETRA Innovation category for the 2014 International TETRA Awards. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner and ceremony taking place at the Landmark Hotel, London, UK on the 21st February.
Now in their third year, the International TETRA awards have been created to recognize innovation in TETRA communications for mission critical and business critical applications. The awards are striving for technical excellence and only entries that demonstrate this have been nominated.
Zinwave DAS technology is being increasingly chosen as the solution of choice by building owners/managers because of its ability to support all public safety frequencies and standards (TETRA, c2000, P25 etc.) including non-standard frequency variations. In Saudi-Arabia, for example, 350 – 360MHz is used for public safety communications.
Zinwave has been selected as a preferred supplier for TETRA coverage in the Middle East because of its flexibility and frequency-agnostic approach. The company has a number of TETRA installations in the region including Queen Alia International Airport, Jordan and King Fahd International Airport, Saudi Arabia. Zinwave also has TETRA installations in prestigious public venues in Europe, Australasia and the US.
Zinwave’s in-building DAS is the only wireless coverage system on the market globally capable of supporting public safety as well as commercial cellular frequencies on a single hardware layer, delivering the lowest total cost of ownership per installation.
Zinwave’s DAS is able to support any combination of services and frequencies, regardless of modulation scheme or protocol, between 150MHz – 2700MHz. It removes the need for complex, multi-layer infrastructures and can be easily expanded without needing expensive and disruptive cabling or equipment overhauls.
Zinwave is also the only company globally that can support multiple FDD and TDD LTE services simultaneously across any spectrum allocated on a global basis on a single hardware layer.
Says Colin Abrey, President, International, Zinwave; “We are recognized by industry analysts for our technical innovation and frequency agnostic capabilities; to be nominated for this award further demonstrates our ability to provide ubiquitous coverage solutions in situations where public safety and security is crucial.”
