RADIO OVER FIBER TECHNOLOGY
The Wideband approach is enabled by:
• Core optical technology: high frequency RF over MMF
• Installed base of MMF, allowing re-use
• Fiber agnostic means MMF or SMF can be used
• Wideband active Remote Unit technology
• High linearity, high composite power wideband amplifiers
• Dual Port antenna design
• High isolation (>40dB) twin element in single housing

DUAL PORT WIDEBAND ANTENNA
Zinwave also offers unique dual port Wideband antennas for use
with its DAS system:
 Small unobtrusive form factor
Ceiling mounted
 Omni-directional coverage
 Wideband frequency range:
 800 – 2700 MHz
 698 – 2700 MHz (under
development)
 Unity Gain nominal
 Guarantees the required isolation for
Zinwave’s wideband system

Mounting bracket screws
into ceiling. Antenna fixed
into place with locking
screw.
Off the shelf antennas can also be
used (with the right spacing) for any
specific coverage requirements

PUBLIC SAFETY COVERAGE


Typical Minimum RF Level Design Requirement
is -95 dBm
 Much Lower Than -85 dBm to -75 dBm
Commercial Requirements
 Requires Very Little Power Share in Zinwave
Multi Service RU – Essentially add for Free
Public Safety Often Wants Dedicated DAS
 Liability Issues
 NFPA code Requires Emergency DAS
Remotes to be NEMA4
 Because of Low RF Levels, a Parallel Public
Safety DAS adds Little Cost to Overall
Project When Included with a Commercial
DAS
