L-com Global Connectivity, a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it has launched a series of low-PIM-rated products to address DAS network applications.
Passive Intermodulation (PIM) is a type of signal interference that degrades the quality of wireless communication systems. PIM can significantly impact performance and reduce download speeds of distributed antenna systems (DAS) and LTE networks that support wireless devices. Using low-PIM-rated components when designing and deploying a DAS or LTE network can help to ensure the best performance and lessen the effects of PIM.
L-com’s low-PIM-rated products are specifically designed for in-building wireless systems such as DAS networks which are used to distribute cellular and Wi-Fi signals throughout a building or area. This series of products includes adapters, connectors, surge protectors and high-performance ceiling-mount antennas.
“L-com’s low-PIM-rated products provide superior PIM protection and performance to meet the increasing demand for higher data rates and video streaming for mobile devices on DAS and LTE/4G bands,” said Ken Burgner, Product Manager.
L-com’s series of low-PIM-rated products meet the most demanding low-PIM standards with ratings of < -160 dBc or < -150 dBc.
