Westell serves up FirstNet-ready in-building wireless system

Westell has introduced the PS51080, a new in-building repeater solution that can address current existing public safety communication regulations, while allowing customers to prepare for future mandates and nationwide network deployments for emergency and disaster preparedness communications. In upcoming mandates set by FirstNet, a government mandated agency established to implement the deployment and operation of a common nationwide public safety broadband network for local and federal first responders and other public safety personnel.

The PS51080 repeater also meets the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) compliance, NFPA 72. It features antenna monitoring and alarming, 24-hour battery back-up capabilities, and a NEMA Type 4 red enclosure. Westell's PS51080 can also address 700 and 800 MHz bands independently controlled, independent power and gain control per band, and sharp SAW filtering reduces interference from competing signals.
