TE’s DAS solutions enable seamless mobile communications for employees and managers at Ford, General Motors, Hyundai, and Toyota plants and offices throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
Since auto manufacturing plants feature long assembly lines, 24×7 operations and plasma welders that can disrupt RF signals, these plants require flexible DAS products to deliver clear and consistent mobile coverage and capacity.
As employees at auto making plants are utilizing bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives, DAS need to support a range of commercial cellular frequencies ranging from 700 MHz to 2100 MHz, and offer MIMO (multi input multi output) as well as SISO (single input single output) technologies to deliver the required network capacity.
TE Connectivity says its CPRI digital interface unit (CDIU) saves up to 40 percent of equipment space in DAS head-ends when space is at a premium in plants and offices.
In addition to auto making plants in Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Ontario and Mexico, TE DAS delivers mobile services inside non-manufacturing facilities such as GM’s Warren, Michigan technical center and its Detroit world headquarters.
