SOLON, OH - Bird, a leading provider of RF components, subsystems, test equipment, and services, announced the release of an expansion to its Signal Booster product line.  Bird has applied its experience in the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) industry to add fiber transport to the Bird SBII+ product line. Bird can now provide the expected public safety grade reliability and coverage to single large building or multiple buildings for first responders, public safety government agencies and private system users all using a single donor antenna.

In addition to reducing the overall radio system noise, this fiber architecture greatly simplifies setup. Complete control and configurability are orchestrated with any computer on an Ethernet network or virtually anywhere that Web access is available. Expanding an existing system to cover additional areas or buildings can be accomplished by adding remotes and running fiber to them or using existing fiber.

The SBII+ Booster family covers UHF, 700 and 800 Public Safety bands with dual band versions available to cover both 700 MHz and 800 MHz bands and are fully certified to meet FCC and Industry Canada certifications as Class B boosters and provide exceptional spectral purity. Also available with NFPA/IFC options that include all alarms and battery backup configuration options to comply with those standards.

The 63A Series has an RF output of +32 dBm in high power mode with a maximum RF input power up to -20 dBm, gain of up to 80 dB, operates over a temperature range of -30° C to +60° C, measures 24 x 27 x 14 in. weighs 117 lb., and operates from either +24 VDC or 90 to 240 VAC supplies. The rugged 63A Series Signal Boosters are housed in NEMA 4 type enclosures, making them an excellent choice for use in stadiums, airports, office buildings, hospitals, tunnels, and any place lacking adequate signal coverage. Custom models are available on request. Contact sales@birdrf.com or one of our Bird distributors.
