Arqiva and Dali Wireless Improve Mobile Coverage in Glasgow City Centre

Tuesday, Nov 28th, 2017 (10:34 am) - Score 781

Wireless infrastructure builder Arqiva has joined with Dali Wireless and Cellular Asset Management to improve Mobile coverage and capacity around Glasgow city centre (Scotland, UK) by harnessing a new digital Distributed Antenna System (DAS), which will also support future 5G rollouts.

The work, which has just completed, essentially saw the group upgrade their existing network by replacing the analogue components with Dali’s digital DAS (their first deployment in the UK), which they say should provide “superior performance” (supporting 2G, 3G, 4G and future 5G services). The new DAS is also scalable so that it can be used in all sorts of both outdoor and indoor environments.

According to Arqiva, the 2G, 3G and 4G services of multiple mobile operators (e.g. EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three UK) are delivered to 12 outdoor nodes from a central equipment room using CWDM technology over five optical fibre rings. The equipment is positioned in key locations inside the city centre, including a busy restaurant and a 300 year-old clock tower.

Jon Freeman, Arqiva’s Product and Technology Director, said:

“Working with Dali Wireless allowed us to provide a solution where the analogue components were replaced with a state-of-the-art digital DAS system, providing a multi operator solution and improved coverage and capacity for mobile phone users in Glasgow City Centre.

Mobile connectivity is a fundamental requirement of city living, and networks are beginning to feel the capacity squeeze as demand for voice and data continues to increase. Network densification in high footfall areas is the only way to alleviate these issues and as the experts in communications infrastructure we are delighted to complete the DAS upgrade in Glasgow for our MNO customers.”

End.
