Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, will present its in-tunnel and in-building wireless communication solutions at Tetra World Congress 2012, which takes place from 14 to 17 May in Dubai. The RFS booth is situated at stand H405 in the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre will present the portfolio of RFS Wireless Indoor Solutions products.

Featured products will include the range of RFS RADIAFLEX cables, which are an unrivalled suite of radiating cables, designed to provide RF broadband wireless coverage for confined areas. Radiating coaxial low-loss cables are distributed antennas which facilitate radio communication where the usual free space propagation of electromagnetic waves is hampered, undesired or impossible in environments such as tunnels, mines, buildings and large complexes like exhibition grounds or airports.

Since more than 40 years, RFS has been the globally acknowledged expert in tunnel and building RF coverage systems, with worldwide experience and know-how spanning six continents and many hundreds of distributed antenna system (DAS) installations.

RFS is offering the widest product range of RADIAFLEX radiating cables for confined area coverage and best fit product to the market, whatever the individual indoor project specific needs are, including:

  • Mission critical (Tetra / GSM-Rail / signalling / track-to-train radio)
  • Commercial (4G, 3G, 2G) wireless services
  • RF ultra-broadband (multi-band / multi-operator)
  • Band-specific applications of licensed or unlicensed frequencies
  • Performance-optimised best fit options for individual requirements and constraints (radiating cable position vs. receive (mobile/on-board) antenna location/orientation) in road/rail/metro tunnels and buildings
  • End-to-end indoor solutions including consultancy and product attached services (solution design, on-site acceptance) aimed at the lowest cost of solution

RFS, the global leader in radiating cable technology, is the only company on the market with the intellectual property and leading-edge technology to suppress so-called stop bands in radiating cables. It features RFS’s patented higher order mode suppression technique, which allows RFS to offer cables that support current and future in-tunnel and in-building commercial and private radio services, from less than 100MHz to 2,700MHz (1-5/8in cables) and to 6,000 MHz (1/2in cables).

For valuable cost savings and the lowest total cost of ownership, RADIAFLEX cables are unconditionally LTE ready and also future-proof with respect to RF spectrum re-banding / re-farming, ensuring the lowest insertion loss and excellent coupling performance, as well as featuring halogen-free, non-corrosive, low-smoke and flame-retardant jacket material for safe and reliable long-term cable operation.

An insight into RFS’ achievements in the in-tunnel and in-building sector will be given by Dr. Peter Raabe, global product line director, wireless indoor solutions at RFS. On Tuesday 15 May he acts as a speaker in the Tetra Live Theatre, in a talk titled: ‘Progress in Radiating Cable Technology to Meet the Challenges of in-Tunnel and in-Building Wireless Communication Systems’.
