San Diego-based Pulse Electronics Corp. will install over 700 ultra-thin, clear antennas for wireless network coverage in the World Trade Center complex in New York.
These ceiling-mount antennas, part of the Clarity family of antennas by the company, were selected by a major U.S. wireless carrier that was not disclosed in the news release.
The DASUTCCR500NF distributed antenna system (DAS) fits better with the reconstructed World Trade Center building because of the demanding radio frequency conditions of steel and reinforced concrete, according to Olivier Robin, the general manager for Pulse Electronics Wireless Infrastructure business unit.
“Pulse’s Clarity antennas are a great fit for the World Trade Center,” said Robin. “With almost everyone using a mobile phone or some type of wireless device, it is essential that employees and visitors of the World Trade Center have a clear connection, enough bandwidth for the Internet, and minimal dead spots and dropped calls…The patent-pending novel design of the Clarity antennas resulted in extremely thin, translucent radiating elements for optimum visual appeal coveted by architects; yet they meet the RF [radio frequency] needs for today’s advanced wireless networks.”
Pulse Electronics provides antennas, magnetics and connectors to the wireless and wireline communications, power management, military/aerospace and automotive industries.
