TE Connectivity Deploys Distributed Antenna System in Vietnam

DAS System Delivers for Vietnam Mobile Services in Suburb of Ho Chi Minh City

TE Connectivity today announced that its partner ITT (Indochina Telecommunication Technology- www.itt.vn) has deployed TE Connectivity’s FlexWave™ Prism distributed antenna system to provide mobile services for Vietnam Mobile Services (VMS2) in Phu My Hung, a suburb of Ho Chi Minh City. Outdoor cellular service was poor in the newly built area, but zoning restrictions prohibited ITT from deploying a traditional cell tower. The FlexWave Prism system provides mobile coverage and capacity with unobtrusive, pole-mounted remote units.

“We needed a solution that would meet zoning requirements and could be installed quickly and easily,” said Mr Nguyen Bao Long, Vice Director at VMS2. “The FlexWave Prism system allowed us to deliver services by extending the signal over fiber from a nearby base station out into the new neighborhood.”

As deployed in Phu My Hung, the FlexWave Prism system includes 20 remote units. It delivers 1800 and 2100 MHz frequencies to provide service for VMS2 subscribers. The system was quick to install and service was available in the neighborhood in only one month.

“FlexWave Prism was designed to deliver mobile services in areas where it is too expensive or impractical to use traditional cell towers because of zoning or service demands, and this is a perfect example of such a deployment,” said Chris Jurasek, vice president and general manager, Wireless and Services at TE. “We believe that as the rise of 3G and 4G mobile services demands smaller cells, providers like VMS2 will rely more and more on distributed antenna systems like FlexWave Prism.”
