Nextel to use ADC gear for network

ADC Telecommunications on Monday said that Nextel Communications will use ADC's Digivance telecommunications gear to spruce up its digital wireless network. A typical wireless site is made up of a bay station and an antenna, which are positioned close to one another. Digivance lets carriers locate an antenna up to 10 miles away from the bay station through a fiber-optic cable link. This saves carriers from having to build larger cell sites, which can be problematic in urban areas because of zoning regulations and expenses. ADC introduced the Digivance product line last year. The equipment can operate on multiple wireless protocols such as CDMA, GSM and TDMA. ADC also has a short-range version of Digivance to boost network coverage within buildings.
