RFS Announces Full Line of Products to Support AWS-3 Spectrum

Meriden, CT (United States), January 27, 2015 – As bidding intensifies for the coveted AWS-3 spectrum - with bids now exceeding a staggering $44 billion - global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) is ready to help carriers support these new frequency bands with a full line of products for AWS-3.

“RFS has proven success enabling our customers to adapt to evolving wireless standards and is fully prepared to help carriers future-proof their AWS band installations to be capable of supporting AWS-3 frequencies as well,” said Teppo Lukkarila, product line manager, RFS. “We appreciate the significant investment that our customers make in wireless infrastructure equipment, and are committed to providing products that will not only support today’s frequencies, but also be compatible with frequencies that will be important down the road.”
All RFS 65° core antenna models are already compatible with AWS-3, and AWS-3 support will be extended to every RFS antenna model going forward. RFS’ product portfolio for AWS-3 also now includes new models of its trusted filters, diplexers and tower mounted amplifiers  to include full AWS-3 paired spectrum, 1755-1780 and 2155-2180 MHz – all with the same superior RF performance that RFS customers have come to expect.

“Carriers are still deploying existing AWS assets. To avoid costly changes and delays later, these deployments should be made with equipment that also supports AWS-3,” added Lukkarila. “In fact, we are already seeing leading Tier-1 carriers requesting upgrades to products that support not only AWS, but also AWS-3, and we’re pleased to have this broad range of products to accommodate their needs.”
