Channelised Solutions

The world is increasingly focused on security and safety, which makes it critical to have robust radio communications systems in place for the day-to-day running of many businesses and especially in emergency situations.

RFI has many standout solutions in this area including its flagship DSPbR (Digital Signal Processor Repeater). This technology has been designed and manufactured from first principles by RFI’s Australian based research and development team and has proven its reliability in the field over many years.

The DSPbR offers greater functionality than standard BDA’s. The unit’s flexibility in programming makes it suitable for a range of network coverage requirements including:

  • In-building Communications
  • Government Radio Networks
  • Tunnels
  • Airports
  • Stadiums
  • Outdoor radio applications

Key differentiators of this purpose-built technology are:

  • ACMA & FCC approved
  • Number of possible channels (384+)
  • Modulation technology agnostic
  • High power per channel (Able to produce BTS equivalent signal footprints)
  • MCPA mode feature (Multi-Channel Power Amplifier)
  • Frequency translating capability

Small Cells

The introduction of small cell technology into the communications sector has revolutionised the way coverage enhancement is delivered. This is particularly true within American markets where competition is strong and there is less appetite to cooperate with other competing carriers on infrastructure sharing. Small Cell Technology is one of the most cost effective solutions to provide targeted carrier-centric network access to areas with poor coverage and/or high capacity requirements.

Small Cells are particularly ideal in heavily populated areas where large concentrations of users often inundate the network. This is an issue in the following environments.

  • Tram/Light Rail
  • Outdoor Areas
  • Stadiums
  • Special Events

 

RFI has a complete range of Small Cell solutions available for deployment and an experienced engineering team who will ensure a quality design and maximum benefit from the technology.
