In various organizational forms, CommScope’s Distributed Coverage and Capacity Solutions team has been intimately involved in DAS for almost 20 years. They introduced an optical distributed in-building DAS back in 1994 for GSM operators. Today, the DCCS team reports that DAS are the subject of heightened interest in the wireless industry, as operators continue to seek and deploy solutions for rising capacity demands. Evidence for the increased interest exists in the number of DAS events occurring these days.

When once there were only one or two specific DAS events a year, now there are two events in two consecutive weeks. CommScope was at DAS in Action: New Orleans this week, and will be at the DAS & Small Cells Congress in Las Vegas next. In this video, Mike Shumate, vice president of business operations, DCCS, reports from DAS in Action about what is driving the interest in DAS and CommScope’s latest DAS solution, the ION-U.

Thanks, Jeff. I don't think you need to worry about me as competition just yet, though. :) RCR Wireless did some great coverage at DAS in Action itself. Good video content on your website.

Great interview and exciting news about the ION-U, I can vouch it is as easy to configure you just have to be able to match up the colors and the blinking lights!
