First Apple® iOS and Android™ application to provide remote access to real-time uplink and downlink test tools, remote power management, and real-time alarm monitoring
AURORA, IL, October 27, 2014 – Westell Technologies, Inc.(NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of in-building wireless, intelligent site management, cell site optimization, and outside plant solutions, today introduces its Apple® iOS and Android™ mobile applications (patent pending) for the ClearLink Universal DAS Interface Tray (UDIT). The ClearLink UDIT, released earlier this year, is part of the company’s comprehensive suite of in-building wireless solutions for distributed antenna system (DAS) networks.
The first of its kind, the ClearLink UDIT mobile app allows technicians to monitor the UDIT in real-time, adjust RF parameters, and review alarm conditions to improve response time.
The increased mobility provided by the application gives technicians another tool to help optimize the network during peak traffic – whether they are in the stands during a major event or off site.
The UDIT mobile application, developed on native iOS and Android operating systems, features the following:
- Remote access to real-time uplink and downlink test tools including:
- UL power meters and a spectrum analysis function
- DL input and output power meters
- Remote power management via access to UL and DL attenuation settings
- Event and real-time alarm monitoring
“With the continued expansion of wireless networks and the demand for a high quality user experience, companies must have the ability to continually monitor and control their networks anytime from anywhere,” states Andy R. Shah, Corporate Director of Software at Westell. “The ClearLink UDIT mobile application is a true and meaningful innovation. It allows wireless service providers and integrators the ability to actively monitor and troubleshoot the UDIT virtually anywhere, significantly reducing site visits and, ultimately, overall operating costs.”
The ClearLink UDIT is a modular, scalable active DAS Interface which provides RF between the Base Transceiver Station (BTS) and the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for single or multi- operator (Neutral Host) systems.
