RFS Honored with TMT News’ 2016 Telecoms Awards

Meriden, CT (United States), August 10, 2016 – Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, is honored to receive two awards recognizing the company’s excellence in the TMT Telecoms Awards 2016 program. RFS was selected as a winner in the “Best Global TMT Infrastructure Company” and “TMT Pioneer Award in Cabling Services” categories.

RFS’ entry in the awards program highlighted the company’s long history of leadership and innovation in the telecom industry, and its complete portfolio of antennas and supporting infrastructure equipment to meet the industry’s complex and evolving needs. The company also provides advanced engineering capabilities, superior field support, and expert technical assistance and training to provide scalable, reliable, future-proof and lightweight end-to-end solutions optimized across the entire RF chain.  

RFS is a market leader for distributed antenna system (DAS) components for in-tunnel and in-building wireless network deployments, deployed in challenging installations all over the world. Its RADIAFLEX® radiating cables have been used by major mobile operators and integrators to deliver uninterrupted coverage and capacity in demanding indoor venues including office buildings, metro rail tunnels, road tunnels, airports, and stadiums worldwide.

For example, RFS provided wireless communication systems for several main venues hosting the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, including active DAS system equipment and passive components. In other significant deployments, RFS enabled wireless communications at Brazil’s Maracanã Stadium for the FIFA World Cup in 2014, and played an integral role in bringing wireless service to the Boston and New York subway systems – just to name a few.

RFS’ HYBRIFLEX solution® ─ the world’s first hybrid feeder cabling solution for RRH ─ can be tailored to a customer’s specific needs, and built with extra fiber capacity for future scalability and expansion. RFS also offers a distinctive approach using discrete cables for DC power and fiber optics, a valid alternative for customers looking for a simple, cost-efficient FTTA deployment, more typically seen in developing countries.

“We are honored to be recognized by the TMT Telecom Awards for our leadership in the dynamic industry of wireless communications,” said David Kiesling, Cable Business Unit Leader at RFS. “Innovation and forward-thinking, comprehensive customer services are the keystones to success in this business. Over the years RFS has always been ahead of the curve in technology development, commitment to quality, and end-to-end infrastructure systems.”
