DeltaNode to Debut Fiber Optic DAS Equipment at Mobile World Congress 2014

Solon, OH - February 2014

DeltaNode, a Bird Technologies company, will debut fanless, IP65 multi-band remote units, compact head end equipment and other DAS equipment at Mobile World Congress 2014.

DeltaNode provides the U.S. and countries worldwide with RF-over-fiber distributed antenna systems and repeaters designed to enhance the coverage of commercial wireless and public safety communication systems.

Bird Technologies’ recent acquisition of DeltaNode (Stockholm, Sweden) brings substantial benefits to Bird, as the technologies, product lines and markets of each company seamlessly complement each other. This makes Bird one of only a handful of companies in the world to offer a complete line of RF products and services, from the component through system levels, for both commercial wireless and public safety communications systems.

“With the acquisition of DeltaNode, Bird Technologies has the technical expertise and products to serve the rapidly growing market for RF distribution systems, for both in-building and outdoor scenarios, such as stadiums, transportation and many other applications,” said Mark Johnson, chief executive officer at Bird Technologies.

At Mobile World Congress 2014, DeltaNode will display fanless, multi-band remote units with up to 40 watts of output power per band, an exclusive offering of the DeltaNode brand. With the lowest system noise figure ratings in the industry, the remote units have enclosures compliant with the stringent IP65 (NEMA4) rating, an essential requirement for applications in the public safety and defense industries.

At Mobile World Congress 2014, attendees can see DeltaNode’s SingleNet DAS solution in action.  This unique solution can be used to transport other services including CPRI/OBSAI signals for remote radio heads and Gigabit Ethernet to be used as backhaul for femto/picocells, connections for Wi-Fi access points and connections for CCTV.

“Our exhibition at Mobile World Congress 2014 represents our commitment to meet the evolving needs of our customers and deliver the RF reliability they’ve come to expect from Bird Technologies,” said Johnson.

Mobile World Congress 2014 will take place in Barcelona, Spain, Feb. 24-27, and showcase the latest innovations and thought leaders in the mobile technology industry. To schedule an appointment with a Bird RF expert at the event, visit www.bird-technologies.com/MWC14.

About DeltaNode

DeltaNode, headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, was founded in 2005 as a project within the SHL Group by a team of Swedish wireless professionals with backgrounds from Ericsson, Allgon, Powerwave, Radiosystem and Motorola. Its first major success was creating an RF subsystem to help provide 3G wireless hotspots on Swedish trains. It launched its first small and medium-power repeaters in 2007 and expanded its presence in Asia and Europe, adding new frequencies to its high-power models. In 2006, DeltaNode signed a long-term contract with a U.S. company to develop a DAS system that incorporated its repeaters and added fiber optic compatibility as well as Web-based control and configurability. DeltaNode has also developed products for the European safety network Tetra as well as for many other applications. The company has a full range of design, prototype, testing, and manufacturing facilities. For more information to go to www.deltanode.com.
