A next-generation distributed antenna system for sustainable and affordable future mobile broadband

Reference number
Funding from Vinnova SEK 4 716 912
Project duration July 2017 - September 2018
Status Completed
Venture Eurostars

Purpose and goal

We will develop next-generation cellular and public safety distributed antenna system (DAS) products, improving efficiency with state-of-the-art digitally linearized RF amplifiers where we have reduced power consumption to less 50% that of current solutions. We shatter digital link capacity limits to give an upgrade path to 5G where we have 4x more bandwidth than other existing systems. The platform supports all radio technologies (2G, 3G, 4G och 5G) ans all cellular frequency bands 700, 800, 900, 1800, 2100 och 2600 MHz

Expected results and effects

By using the Maven Wireless digital DAS for indoor multioperator and multi standard coverage the power consumption will be far less which also means the CO2 emissions is far less using the Maven Wireless high power DAS. Maven DAS consumes 6x (!) less power than a passive antenna solution combining remote radio heads from basestations when deploying indoor coverage. The Maven DAS is also 3x more power efficient than other competing DAS solutions. Our digital platform with DSP and computing capabilities can handle the new aspects of the 5G stand, which we are unique to in the industry.

Planned approach and implementation

By teaming up with a couple of other European companies who are leaders in their own technology field we have been able to develop a world leading DAS product which is the next generation digital DAS compared to other Asian and American equivalent products.
