Inbuilding coverage – always connected

Far in excess of 80% of all mobile traffic emanates from in-building users. Modern building materials block RF signals: for instance, an energy-optimised window only lets through about 0,1% of the RF signal, leading to very poor in-building coverage from the macro network. Today, mobile users have high expectations of coverage and demand to be connected everywhere they go with full bandwidth service. The Ericsson 2016 mobility report estimates a 12x global growth in smartphone traffic between 2015 and 2021 with video accounting for 70% of mobile data traffic by 2021.

The Maven DAS is an ideal system for a multi-operator and multi-standard service. The system has in-built excess transport capacity which means any installed system can be upgraded for future standards such as 5G. The deployment cost for a Maven DAS system is minimized by easy installation due to the low weight of the remote units and automatic RF commissioning functions.

Tunnel coverage – always connected

Regardless of the type of tunnel, uninterrupted coverage is demanded. When people travel through train, road or any other tunnel they need to stay connected with their broadband service. A tunnel is a harsh and dirty environment, which requires that the remote units are extremely robust. Cooling fans are particularly susceptible, requiring regular maintenance to remain operational. The Maven Stratus remotes achieve high output power without requiring fan cooling even in quad-band configurations and the sealed units are IP66 rated, which mean they are ideal for maintenance free tunnel and metro installations.

Smart topology allows for a fully redundant system which, together with functions for automatic fail-over, provide uninterrupted tunnel service even in the event of incidents damaging part of the system.

Stadium coverage – satisfying extreme crowd density

A stadium concentrates an extreme number of users in a small area. Mobile users at concerts and sport events generate large amounts of uplink data, with for instance photo and video streams from various social media apps. The low weight of Maven Stratus DAS remotes makes it easier to mount them in the ceiling next to the antenna, minimising the loss in the antenna connection which gives a high signal to noise ratio resulting in extremely good data throughput.

The Maven DAS head-end architecture is extremely compact. A large 60,000 person stadium needs typically 40 sectors, which can be delivered in only 15 HU rack space per band giving base station connections for up to 4 separate operators. Smart topology allows for capacity in an empty stadium easily to be routed to other locations.

Metro coverage – seamless service

Commuters in a metro system expect seamless wireless service so that they can stay connected on social media, work while commuting, and access online information and entertainment. The wireless network also provides access to emergency services, allowing security information and alerts to reach passengers while allowing security personnel to stay connected and online.
The Maven DAS system is ideal for large DAS installations in complete metro systems. Advanced mesh, ring and tree topologies are supported to give a fully redundant system which, together with functions for automatic fail-over, provide uninterrupted tunnel service even in the event of incidents damaging part of the system.

Metro tunnels are harsh and dirty environments, which require that the remote units are extremely robust. Cooling fans are particularly susceptible, requiring regular maintenance to remain operational. The Maven Stratus remotes achieve high output power without requiring fan cooling even in quad-band configurations and the sealed units are IP66 rated, which mean they are ideal for maintenance free tunnel and metro installations.

Virtual RAN – RF from the cloud

Virtual RAN offers operators the prospect of reduced hardware cost, simplification of the mobile network, and reduced operating costs. A first step on this path is to centralise base stations into base station hotels from where capacity can be distributed. Taken further, the approach envisages a fully virtual RF environment where baseband processing resources in the cloud can access RF resources distributed throughout the coverage area.

The Maven DAS is an ideal front end system to establish RF coverage in a multi-operator virtual RAN: the smart digital fabric allows digital signals from the cloud RAN to be distributed where needed. The Maven Tarantula is a compact all-digital switch which provides the interface from Cloud RAN baseband resources to the smart digital fabric of the Maven DAS.
