Westell Technologies Announces New Innovative Carrier Approved Tower Mounted Amplifier (TMA)

Latest TMA innovation enables simpler cabling solution, providing more efficient and less expensive installation for advanced antenna control

AURORA, Ill. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 6, 2016Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of in-building wireless, intelligent site management, cell site optimization, and outside plant solutions announces a significant enhancement to its Tower Mounted Amplifier (TMA) solutions. Westell’s new B90 TMA is a first-of-a-kind solution that reinjects the radio frequency (RF) signal protocol known as AISG (Antenna Interface Standards Group) from the RF base station into the antenna port of the TMA, thus allowing it to be received by both the TMA and the antenna. This feature allows the customer to save on installation time and costs, while improving reliability.

“Our B90 TMA is testimony to our industry leadership and promise to provide the most advanced and cost-effective cell site optimization solution available,” stated Marty Cowen, Director of Technology at Westell. “The B90 TMA was engineered to streamline the installation process – one less cable to worry about – and optimize signal pass-through. And this TMA has been carrier approved and soon to be deployed by the largest and most reputable wireless service provider in the country.”

Westell B90 TMA Benefits

  • Seamless interoperability with a new generation of Smart-Bias T antennas via AISG signal re-injection in the TMA’s antenna port
  • Eliminates the dedicated AISG cable between the TMA and the antenna
  • Same field-proven software revision as the already-deployed A90 generation of TMAs
  • Fully backward compatible with older non-Smart-Bias-T antennas – includes a dedicated AISG port which can be used as needed – thus one TMA can be deployed for both types of antennas
