Tyco Electronics, a provider of solutions and services for wireless, wireline, cable and enterprise networks, has announced that it has offered its InterReach Fusion and FlexWave Prism distributed antenna systems or ‘DAS’ to enable high-quality mobile services for AT&T (News - Alert) subscribers at a number of sports and hospitality venues. America’s premier professional football event is going to take place at Dallas in early February, and as a part of the preparations these deployments are being made at various stadiums, hotels, performing arts venues and security centers.
“While we have been planning these deployments for a year in some cases, we knew we would come down to the wire in getting some of them deployed,” commented Chris Jurasek, vice president of the Wireless and Services business unit at Tyco Electronics (News - Alert). “The InterReach Fusion and FlexWave Prism systems deliver coverage and capacity in all of these varied properties and they could be deployed quickly, within four days in one case.”
“At a major sporting event like this where tens of thousands of fans, media reporters, and team members will be gathered in these venues, a breakdown in mobile communications would be very disruptive,” he added. “We are proud to have been selected as the provider of the wireless systems that will enable AT&T subscribers to enjoy high-quality mobile services no matter how large the crowd.”
Earlier this month, Tyco Electronics announced the expansion of its silicon ESD or ‘electrostatic discharge’ protection product portfolio with the introduction of 0201- and 0402-size devices that are easier to install and rework than traditional semiconductor-packaged ESD devices. The ChipSESD package combines the advantages of an active silicon device with a traditional Surface-Mount Technology or ‘SMT’ passive packaging configuration.
