Cobham Wireless is the industry pioneer in the field of providing UHF coverage solutions having delivered the first such product in 1997. Today, we have supplied thousands of UHF coverage products into virtually every major public safety network in the world that uses the technology. As a result we have the most experienced UHF engineering and design capabilities in the industry and are regularly called upon by network operators, public safety systems integrators, base station manufacturers and public safety authorities to help solve a UHF coverage issue.
Cobham Wireless introduced the world’s first digital SDR (software defined radio) UHF coverage products in 2008. Based on our patented DSP (digital signal processing) technology our digital UHF solutions provide extremely low delay and high selectivity filtering capability to enable systems to be configured precisely to the requirements of the individual public safety network and the local operating environment.
Our range of DSP (digital signal processing) UHF digital off air BDA’s provide coverage in small, medium, large and campus style buildings, inside tunnels, metros and remote or rural communities. Our UHF products can be used to provide coverage by themselves or as a feeder into a DAS (Distributed Antenna System). Being software based new features and capabilities can be easily installed in the future if necessary via a remote download. The products feature an innovative “time slot ALC” mechanism which reduces noise transmitted to the base station thus improving overall network performance and selectivity. Systems are easily configured either locally or remotely via a simple GUI web interface or using the AEM (Active Element Manager) system and are supplied in secure, robust and weatherproof IP65/NEMA 4 cases. In common with other public safety products our UHF product range are of the highest quality and have been operating in many networks for over 10 years.
