    Hybrid Distributed Antenna Systems (Hybrid DAS)
 

Hybrid Active DAS

Quatra by Cel-Fi is a new category of distributed antenna system that uses active repeater amplifiers (Active DAS) with integrated antennas connected over CAT5e Ethernet cable. The hybrid distributed antenna system avoids the signal loss experienced with coaxial cable and since it is pre-approved by the carriers, it can provide up to 100 dBm of gain versus the 70 dBm allowed for Passive DAS signal boosters

  • A carrier approved active DAS
  • Solves in-building coverage issues for 4G / 5G / LTE
  • Key Benefits:
    • Best Quality Signal at 100 dB Max Gain
    • Carrier Approved
    • Unconditionally Network Safe for Voice and Data
    • Remote Monitoring and Management
    • Scalable up to 200,000 Sq. Ft.
    • Can be used with a Carrier’s Small Cell device instead of a donor or outdoor antenna
    • Target: Small to Mid-Size enterprise
    • Buildings up to 200,000 Sq Ft
Quatra Network and Coverage Units
Quatra Network Unit and
Coverage Unit

Cel-Fi Quatra is an active DAS hybrid. A single system can be installed with a donor antenna and be configured to provide coverage up to 50,000 sq. ft. It is comprised of one Network Unit (NU), which is the hub of the system; and one to four Coverage Units (CU), which are the remote radio units of the system that rebroadcast the donor signal.

Quatra In-Building Enterprise Cellular System

Cel-Fi Quatra can also be deployed within larger venues using a small cell donor signal, combining up to four Quatra systems. In this scenario, by synchronizing the outputs from multiple CUs, the coverage area of each Coverage Unit is stitched together to form one large cell (a "Super-Cell") that can provide coverage across an entire building of up to 200,000 sq. ft. The simplicity of a Cel-Fi QUATRA installation and commissioning can be installed faster than other available solutions. standard Cat 5e (or better) cable is used to connect the Network Unit (NU) with each Coverage Unit (CU). When powered-on, all network and system optimizations are performed automatically.

A large enterprise may be able to support the costs of a traditional DAS solution that requires extensive planning, RF design, engineering, and highly skilled technical installation and maintenance, as well as extensive budget and contract negotiations with multiple vendors, integrators, and the carriers themselves. But the cost of a traditional DAS solution typically puts them out of range of the small to medium business. Venues that range in size from 10,000 to 200,000 sq. ft. are particularly challenged with the price/performance gap, as they are too large for affordable consumer-grade solutions and too small for high-performance DAS.

iBwave 3-D Small Hotel Hybrid Design

Small Hotel Hybrid Active DAS Design in three dimensions using iBwave

Cel-Fi Quatra was designed to standardize on dedicated Cat 5e cabling to simplify the installation process. Better cable can be used, but is not required. As the Control Units are powered antennas, they have full transmit power available. There is no coaxial distribution power loss. The Coverage Unit is powered over PoE. The Network Unit and the Coverage Unit may be separated by as much as 200 meters when the optional Quatra Range Extender (QRE) is placed inline. The QRE is plug and play, and doesn’t require independent power as it also is a POE device. Multiple Cel-Fi QUATRA systems may be installed and will self-organize to support larger spaces.

Design Process

We use iBwave as the basis of our Computer Aided Design and Keysight Nemo Walker Air for our site surveys and for design verification.
