Antennas enable wireless comms in the World Trade Center

Pulse Electronics announces that its Clarity family of antennas has been selected by a major US wireless carrier to enable wireless network coverage in a key building of the World Trade Center complex in New York, NY. Over 700 of Pulse's Clarity DASUTCCR500NF Distributed Antenna System (DAS) ultra-thin, clear, ceiling-mount antennas will be deployed in the building.

Olivier Robin, General Manager, Wireless Infrastructure business unit, Pulse Electronics, commented: "Pulse's Clarity antennas are a great fit for the World Trade Center. With almost everyone using a mobile phone or some type of wireless device, it is essential that employees and visitors of the World Trade Center have a clear connection, enough bandwidth for the internet, and minimal dead spots and dropped calls. The reconstruction of this historic building created demanding RF conditions of steel and reinforced concrete. The patent-pending novel design of the Clarity antennas resulted in extremely thin, translucent radiating elements for optimum visual appeal coveted by architects; yet they meet the RF needs for today's advanced wireless networks."

Pulse Electronics' Clarity family of DAS antennas are translucent, making them nearly transparent. They have an extremely low profile, extending just 0.33" (8.4mm) below the ceiling. The antennas cover all cellular bands from 608 to 2,700MHz and their PIM rating is better than -155dBc at 2x20W (2x43dBm), providing superior performance. The DASUTCCR500NF antennas are part of Pulse Electronics' PIMinator line of low passive intermodulation antennas.
