Ethertronics’ EtherDAS Indoor USA™ “Assembled in the USA” DAS Products Make Superior Solutions for Public Safety Agency Applications


SAN DIEGO, Calif. – March 1, 2013 – Ethertronics, a leading technology company enabling innovative antenna and RF system solutions to deliver the best connected experience, today announced that the company has expanded its line of Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) products. The EtherDAS Indoor USA™ family of DAS antennas includes N Connector and Pigtail versions – both assembled in the United States of America – making them ideal for federal government and public safety agency applications.

EtherDAS Indoor USA, part of the EtherDAS Indoor family of products, are the world’s first DAS solutions to achieve passive intermodulation (PIM) performance of -153dBc in all 2G, 3G and 4G bands. Wireless carriers are increasingly setting stringent PIM requirements for DAS to minimize interference, which undermines data, video and voice performance and saps network capacity. A low PIM figure indicates that a DAS system can provide noticeably superior performance and faster throughput on both the uplink and downlink; imperative for the mission critical communications needs of public safety and government applications.

Wireless carriers and public safety agencies are increasingly focusing on improving in-building coverage and capacity – particularly for LTE – to provide ubiquitous coverage. EtherDAS Indoor USA is designed for indoor deployments such as government and public safety offices and complexes requiring “Assembled in the USA” products for national security.

The EtherDAS Indoor USA product line additions include two omni-directional products: one with a 500 mm pigtail and N connector (D121010H11) and one with an N connector (D100009H11), providing installation flexibility. Both products feature a compact design and neutral color so they blend in with their surroundings.

EtherDAS Indoor USA is the latest example of Ethertronics’ leadership in developing industry-first RF antenna solutions for cellular, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi and WiMAX. To date, Ethertronics has shipped more than 650 million passive and active RF solutions to leading OEM and ODM customers
