Banner Health, a Phoenix-based healthcare provider with, has selected the CommScope Era C-RAN antenna system to deliver strong, consistent mobile coverage in its hospitals and clinics across six states.
Banner Health had previously leased a DAS but wanted a system that its IT staff could deploy and maintain. Based on CommScope’s ION-E, the all-digital Era runs over standard IT structured cabling infrastructure that is familiar to the IT team, and that can be leveraged for future services such as 5G and Internet of Things. It can provide cost savings by sharing fiber with other services. Because the system supports multiple service providers, Banner Health’s physicians, staff, patients and visitors are all assured of connectivity.
