Whoop Wireless to install DAS for a venue customer in South Carolina.
Whoop Wireless will be installing one of its proprietary DAS systems for a venue based customer in South Carolina within the next 30 days. “This project in South Carolina is a venue project where communications infrastructure requirements will vary dependent upon the event,” stated Mark Strittmatter, Vice President of Sales and Customer Service. “The customer needed a flexible system that was cost effective, scalable, reliable and could fit into their ROI model – our system fits that type of customer model on a consistent basis,” Strittmatter continued. According to Mr. Strittmatter the South Carolina opportunity was brought to Whoop management through one of Whoop’s channel partners. “This was a great example of a channel partner closing out a deal for us and driving revenue for both companies. Whoop continues to benefit from great partnerships and relationships with distributors and system integrators.” The system will be operational no later than June 10th with scheduled venues taking advantage of the Whoop in-building cellular system immediately upon installation.
The patented whoopFAST™ Small Cell Interface (SCI) delivers 4G/LTE in-building coverage for the four Tier 1 mobile network operators, serving >98% of users Day-1. It includes ten radio inputs and four outputs. The inputs include eight small cell (femtocell) inputs and two over-the-air (OTA) inputs. The OTA inputs use band-specific repeaters to boost the OTA signal for simulcasting throughout the in-building coverage area. The small cell inputs are operator-specific, with the capacity of each small cell switchable to any of the four outputs. Up to 50 antennas may be connected to each SCI. A Whoop Antenna Array Element (AAE) is connected to each antenna to boost output power through the antenna. This enables Enterprises to distribute a femtocell signal to a coverage area 50x larger than the area of a typical stand-alone femtocell. The SCI passive switch matrix optimizes the delivery of capacity where required in the coverage area. Capacity may be simulcasted throughout the building, or mapped to targeted coverage zones, based on enterprise capacity requirements and available signal source capacity.
