ADC Systems Provide Multi-Carrier, Indoor/Outdoor Mobile Service to Resorts World at Sentosa in Singapore

ADC (NASDAQ: ADCT) (www.adc.com) today announced that its FlexWave™ Prism distributed antenna systems (DAS) have been selected to provide strong and pervasive mobile coverage for all facilities at Singapore’s Sentosa Island resorts. Deployment will begin immediately and will be completed in time for the resorts’ grand opening in 2010. These products as well as ADC’s entire wireless portfolio will be displayed in Booth 4B1-10 at the CommunicAsia 2009 Exhibition and Conference in Singapore from June 16-19.

The new 49-hectare Resorts World at Sentosa will include six theme hotels, a Universal Studios theme park, the Marine Life Park, the Maritime Experiential Museum, and the Equarius Water Park. The challenge was to provide high-quality mobile voice and data services to all parts of the island’s resort and inside its buildings.

This project marks the first-ever collaboration with NCS, a leading IT and communications engineering service provider in the Asia-Pacific region. NCS and ADC will design, supply, build and integrate the solution for Resorts World at Sentosa. The solution delivers multi-carrier coverage with a single set of compact radio units that are connected via ADC’s patented digital fiber optic technology to mobile telcos’ base station hotels.

The mobile network at Resorts World is a shared infrastructure for MobileOne, StarHub, SingTel Mobile and GRID Communications. This project is being primed by MobileOne on behalf of the other three Singapore mobile telcos. ADC’s solution includes 46 FlexWave Prism remote units, which will each support four different mobile frequencies (iDEN, GSM, DCS, and UMTS), ensuring high-quality voice and data services for resort staff and guests. The FlexWave Prism remote units will link to two base station hotels on the resort that will provide the signal sources for the carriers involved in the project. Unlike other outdoor solutions, Prism saves space, is quick to deploy, and blends into the environment. “Our FlexWave Prism solution was designed precisely for such applications as the expansive, new resort facilities on Sentosa because it supports multiple carriers over a large area – both indoor and outdoor – with a relatively small investment in equipment and deployment services” said Derek Paton, director of Asia-Pacific sales for ADC. “As carriers migrate more of their networks to provide 3G and 4G services worldwide, we believe that precision coverage systems like FlexWave Prism will be an important part of the solution.”
