Advanced fiber-to-the-edge, in-building wireless technology.

Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) is a proven technology, reliably delivering increased wireless coverage and capacity in stadiums, subways, airports, tunnels places where the macro network falls short.  Everyday  around the world, millions of cellular users connect to a SOLiD DAS. Unfortunately for most, their connected experience ends once they enter a building. For the billions of  square feet  of commercial real estate, the complexity and economics of traditional DAS is a deal breaker.

Commercial buildings are rapidly deploying new smart building technology. Property technology or Prop Tech is a trend that enables buildings to operate more efficiently, and create high value, customizable tenant and occupant experiences.

SOLiD GENESIS DAS is a simple, fiber-to-the-edge, property technology plug-in that solves a property’s cellular problems. Using the same prop tech infrastructure GENESIS delivers private LTE wireless network connectivity for IoT and prop tech communications and multi-operator cellular service for the property’s staff, tenants and visitors.

SOLiD Genesis

Fiber-to-the-Edge Architecture

SOLiD GENESIS DAS  uses standards based structured cabling for communications and power distribution,  Fiber optic and low voltage copper infrastructure delivers both superior performance and a significant economic advantage over traditional half inch coax cable. Our fiber-to-the-edge architecture makes efficient use of your infrastructure investment leveraging your buildings existing fiber plant and if required, additional fiber can be installed to support additional Prop Tech systems. GENESIS DAS is very scalable and flexible and meets the requirements of practically any building or venue.

Less Power More Options.

SOLiD has always led the industry with the broadest portfolio of remote amplifiers. The GENESIS solution continues the tradition by offering a low power remote node ( less than 1W)  that pushes the use of fiber optic infrastructure, beyond the riser, beyond the closet, to the edge.  Fiber connectivity to the LRN eliminates coax and the challenges material bulk and installer specialization, RF power distribution, testing and PIM!  Replace coax with fiber and installation gets easier, faster, more secure, better performance.

Fiber-to-the-edge infrastructure and the GENESIS LRN blurs traditional DAS thinking. Installations and management of the wireless network are enterprise scoped and more “WiFi-like” than DAS. However, it still performs like a DAS. The GENESIS LRN supports up to six frequency bands can be installed practically anywhere are easily  added or relocated to meet building and tenant improvements.  With power software tools, robust SOLiD engineering and construction a GENESIS DAS is a perfect plug-in to your buildings tech strategy.

GENESIS Universal Point of Interface 

The UPOI is an optional, passive signal attenuator providing up to -20dB of attenuation.   The UPOI is used in the unlikely but plausible cases where the incoming signal exceeds the input threshold of the DAU.  It’s a cost effective, small footprint option that saves rack space and engineering efforts.

Consider these important GENESIS UPOI features:
  • Passive, low PIM attenuator
  • Wideband, module supports 600-3800 MHz
  • Number of ports matches the number of ports in the DAU

GENESIS Distributed & Aggregation Unit

The DAU is the heart of the GENESIS headend, interfacing  with the signal source it distributes signals to the distributed LRNs. Each DAU supports up to 512 LRNs across a maximum 8 sectors

Consider these important GENESIS DAU features:
  • Interfaces with 1 to 24 signal source inputs using wide-band modules
  • Distributes signals to any combination of eight HOUs and/or LRNs supporting a maximum of 512 LRNs
  • Supports two expansion DAUs, local or remote, for more sectors
  • Commissioning and management through embedded intuitive user interface with complete remote access and functionality

GENESIS Distribution RF Unit

The DRFU is the module level component of the DAU.  It’s a flexible signal source interface available in three frequency ranges.


  • Interfaces with four signal sources, simplex or duplex inputs
  • Each input port independent from other ports
  • Input ports support any combination of bands within the range of the DRFU
  • Three wide-band modules to support
  • 600 – 2700 MHz

GENESIS Hub Optical Unit 

The HOU distributes data to the LRN via fiber optic cable.  Each HOU supports 8 LRNs. The HOU also provides low voltage power to the LRN.  The HOU can support two additional HOUs for a total of 3 HOUs per DAU branch.

Consider these important GENESIS HOU features:
  • Provides data to eight remote units
  • Daisy chain up to two HOUs per branch
  • Modular power supply provides power to eight LRN remotes
  • Power to each remote is controlled and monitored
  • Meets NEC Class 2

GENESIS Decode Unit 

Each DAU is paired with a Decode Unit.  The DU provides  the installer and system administrator with soft tools to decode signals, monitor performance and commission the network.  The DCU can be accessed remotely used in the configuration effort.

Consider these important GENESIS DCU features:
  • Decodes channel and system information
  • Wireless operator, Sector ID, and reference power (CPICH, RSRP, etc)
  • Decode LTE (FDD or TDD), UMTS, CDMA
  • System may be commissioned remotely using decoded information

GENESIS Expansion Power Supply Unit 

The EPSU provides additional low voltage power to support maximum LRN density requirements.

Consider these important GENESIS EPSU features:
  • Provides power to as many as 24 LRN remotes
  • Each modular power supply supports eight LRN remotes
  • Power to each remote is controlled and monitored
  • Meets NEC Class 2

GENESIS Low-Power Remote Node 

Taking fiber-to-the-edge, the LRN enables a structured cabling infrastructure and enterprise friendly installation effort. Small size, flexibility and low infrastructure impact, the LRN is key to providing private LTE and cellular connectivity to the MIDDLEPRISE and beyond.

Consider these important GENESIS LRN features:
  • Supports six frequency bands 600 – 3800 MHz
  • Flexible architecture supports future frequencies beyond current range.
  • Compatible with multimode or single mode optical fiber
  • External antenna port(s) allows optimum antenna use
  • SISO and MIMO options may be supported
  • Daisy chain up to four remotes per branch
  • May be installed indoor or outdoor
  • Easy above ceiling or surface mount installation
