Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) & Cellular Cables
Hitachi cables for wireless & cell tower applications
Distributed Antenna and Cellular networks are growing at an amazing rate due in part to the wider use of smart phones. In 2017, 68.4 percent of the U.S. population used a smartphone. This is up from 40 percent only three years earlier (Statista.com). This increased use of smartphones has necessitated an increase in the reach and bandwidth of cellular and wireless networks. Imagine the strain on a cellular network near a major league sporting event where tens of thousands of people could be on their devices at a given time. Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) can be strategically located to supplement the cellular system in the area. As smartphone use increases, the demand for these enhanced cell networks will become even more important. Hitachi Cable America (HCA) has solutions to help build both DAS and cellular networks.
Manufacturing in Manchester, New Hampshire, HCA can design and build wireless communication cables to meet a customer’s specific needs. Utilizing decades of design experience and the latest in cable manufacturing technology and materials, HCA can build hybrid cables that include optical fibers, power wires, alarm wires and category rated twisted pairs. These components can be rated for indoor and outdoor use and can also be purchased separately.
