Acentury Inc., one of Canada’s fastest growing technology companies, announces their latest premium Public Safety and 5G ready wideband components
New extra low PIM components meet -165 dBc covering the coveted 600 MHz and 5G bands.
Acentury Inc. has developed a suite of 5G-ready, extra low Passive Inter Modulation (PIM) components which are now ready for shipment.
“We are extremely excited about this announcement,” says Fan Zhang, VP Network Components Division of Acentury Inc. “Existing wireless components normally have a band range from 698 to 2700 MHz. Our current extra low PIM components are listed at 520 to 3,800 MHz and some now are extended to the 350 - 6,000 MHz range but all achieve -165 dBc PIM. Very few vendors can produce this performance specification and we are proud to be one of them.”
Passive Intermodulation (PIM) is a form of distortion that degrades the communication signal for passive wireless communication components such as cables, antennas and connectors. The 600 MHz spectrum, a valuable low-band spectrum for ‘hard-to-reach’ areas, is currently available for the US market with Canadian auctions shortly to follow.
With this perfect storm of market demand soon to arrive, Acentury is uniquely positioned in the marketplace with a premium set of passive components that meet the design requirements for the 600 MHz and 5G spectrums. This allows global carriers to invest in the components knowing they will not need to be upgraded in the very near future.
Acentury manufactures and sells their own components through Radiocomm, and has seen sharp growth in demand since its inception in 2011. This announcement comes on the heels of a September, 2017 announcement that awarded Acentury Inc. with the 9th place ranking in the 2017 PROFIT 500 list of Canada’s fastest-growing technology companies.
Radiocomm is a division of Acentury that manufactures low PIM performance RF cables and components, and is an industry leader manufacturing and supplying major carriers and integrators in the global market since 2011. Radiocomm’s comprehensive product portfolios include both general and extra low PIM grades and are widely used for cellular towers, in-building DAS systems, and wireless research and development labs.
