Advanced RF Technologies (ADRF) is a leading OEM of in-building distributed antenna system (DAS) equipment that improve wireless coverage and capacity for the largest service providers and enterprise customers around the world.
As a provider of DAS, repeaters, passive components, small cells and other critical system components, ADRF’s target customers include sports and entertainment, public safety, commercial real estate, healthcare, hospitality, and higher education. ADRF offers a unique and holistic approach by producing each key component of the total wireless solution, thereby eliminating the time, hassle, and complication associated with design, procurement, installation, and maintenance of disparate components.
Seri Yoon, ADRF’s director of marketing, said that ADRF prides itself on designing and manufacturing modular platforms, which means customers can customize their solutions based on both current and future needs and budget.
“Let’s say you only want to improve your wireless coverage for AT&T today, because you have budget constraints—a lot of building owners have that problem,” she said. “Our system is future proof and cost-effective because you can grow as you need, which is a perfect solution for enterprise consumers.”
Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium, home of the World Series Champion Royals, is a prime example. ADRF provided the DAS for the stadium, which started out as a Sprint-only solution.
“During the last World Series, the other carriers had data throughput of less than one Mbps, whereas Sprint reached up to 80 Mbps, which is huge during game time,” Yoon said. “The other carriers also wanted to improve their wireless coverage, so this year Kauffman is adding Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. As you can see with modularity—pay for what you need now and you can grow as you need.”
Other recent ADRF installations include DirecTV headquarters, Florida Gulf Coast University, Great American Ballpark, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Oakland International Airport, Paul Brown Stadium, Qualcomm Headquarters, Raytheon Headquarters, Sprint Headquarters, Sun Life Stadium, SunTrust Park, W Hotel Foshay and many others. Yoon said the list of installations are in the thousands, but those are some of the latest and greatest.
ADRF also has launched two new platforms this year, one being a compact, next-generation DAS, and the other dealing with the public safety world, which Yoon said is an important focus for the company.
“We’ve invested a lot of resources this year in launching our new ADX V DAS as well as our new line of channelized digital Public Safety repeaters,” she said. “This continues our long tradition of investing in our R&D to constantly develop advanced technologies and products.”
