RF Over Fibre Design and Installation Services
RF over fibre allows wireless communications within a building structure to provide mobile and public safety operators adequate communication coverage at an affordable rate.
A variety of power levels are available to meet the needs of different coverage environments.
The use of external base stations to provide in-building communications has become difficult with the increase in building construction environmental legislation, which has meant the thermal efficiency requirements are effectively shielding the wireless transmission into the building.
Typical RF Over Fibre Applications include:
- Satcom ground segment equipment – such as teleports, broadcast facilities, VSAT gateways, etc.
- GPS for timing – timeservers, base stations and re-radiating
- Maritime – Sonar & communication buoys, GPS and Satcom
- Government and Defence – secure communications, Satcom, SIGINT
- Cellular and timing – GPS, re-broadcasting and distribution
- Mining, Tunnels and Public Safety – timing and communications
- Satellite Ground Stations and Teleports
What are the typical RF Over Fibre features?
Compared to traditional signal transmission
bandwidth capacity of RF fibre allows higher bandwidth through multiplexing. With a higher reliability, and security fibre is much more difficult to tap than copper.
RF fibre has an advantage of not conducting electricity and thus reduces fire & lightning hazards.
At Radiocoms we can provide a range of in-building RF over fibre coverage systems for small, medium and large buildings to ensure wireless coverage is maintained throughout.
Radiocoms offer a design and installation service for RF (Radio Frequency) over fibre optic which is known as RoF (Radio over Fibre) and DAS (distributed antenna systems).
The designs allow RF signals to utilise the fibre optic technology to propagate wireless coverage around buildings, tunnels, metros and other infrastructure complexes.
A fundamental design aspect is to provide equipment with high-performance fibre optics that facilitate rapid throughput and low noise.
The systems are broadband in nature and cover frequency ranges from FM through to 2.7GHz. As such a combined solution can encapsulating public safety radio and cellular bands in one system. This enables network operators, enterprises, and transportation or public safety authorities to operate one integrated system with a mixture of different bands including VHF, UHF, GSM, WCDMA and LTE, therefore, providing coverage for a variety of services.
