City of Bellevue Deploys Zinwave's UNItivity Distributed Wireless Solution
March 14, 2016
We are proud to announce that the City of Bellevue, Washington has deployed Zinwave’s UNItivity wideband distributed wireless system in its 650,000-square foot City Hall complex. The Zinwave system supports both public safety and commercial cellular frequencies for the City, and uniquely offers the ability to support additional cellular frequencies and providers in the future without the need for hardware upgrades.
In replacing an older DAS that supported only two frequencies, the City selected Zinwave’s solution because it wanted a system that would handle any frequency or mobile operator without equipment upgrades. In addition, the City liked UNItivity’s all-fiber infrastructure because it allowed for use of existing fiber in the building, thereby reducing installation complexity and expenses.
While the system today supports just one major cellular carrier, the City is in negotiations to add others to the system, and can do so by simply integrating them into the UNItivity head-end. Zinwave’s wideband DAS supports any combination of wireless and IP services between 150MHz-2700MHz on a one layer infrastructure, regardless of protocol or modulation scheme. It is also the only system to support multiple FDD and TDD LTE services simultaneously across any spectrum allocated globally.
“Enterprises, municipalities, and other organizations need to support a wide array of radio frequencies in order to provide complete support for employees, visitors and first responders,” said John Spindler, vice president of marketing at Zinwave. “We have the only distributed wireless system that supports any current or future wireless frequency without hardware upgrades, so it’s the only truly future-proof solution.”
