Westell Technologies Introduces the ClearLink™ UDIT™ Active DAS RF Conditioner and Management System

Cellular Specialties, Inc. (CSI), a division of Westell (NASDAQ: WSTL), a global leader of intelligent site management, in-building wireless, cell site optimization, and outside plant solutions, announces the ClearLink Universal DAS Interface Tray (UDIT). The UDIT joins the ClearLink suite of distributed antenna system (DAS) and small cell products to provide a comprehensive in-building wireless solution.

The ClearLink UDIT is an active radio frequency (RF) DAS conditioner and management system that optimizes signal performance between a small cell or high power base station transceiver (BTS) and a DAS. The UDIT is technology neutral (LTE, CDMA, GSM, EVDO, etc.) and provides signal conditioning and remote monitoring and control for single service provider, neutral host, and multicarrier systems. The ClearLink UDIT provides comprehensive remote monitoring of DAS alarms, RF parameters, and configurations via a web-based graphical user interface (GUI). This helps improve response time to issues, maintain operating efficiency, and improve technician productivity.

“In-building wireless deployments are growing rapidly as mobile device users demand quality and reliable services inside large venues such as office buildings, airports, and stadiums,” explains Scott Goodrich, President of Cellular Specialties, Inc. “The introduction of the ClearLink UDIT solution allows wireless service providers and integrators active monitoring of their DAS and small cell networks with the ability to troubleshoot problems remotely, significantly reducing site visits and ultimately, overall operating costs.”

The UDIT provides wireless service providers with scalability and flexibility for future expansion as the network needs evolve. The compact design of UDIT minimizes rack space required which can be critical in installations where space is limited. The ClearLink UDIT is NEBS compliant, ensuring reliability for long-term use in all environments.
