Westell Technologies UDIT™ Compliant with C Squared Systems SitePortal® January 12, 2015 AURORA, IL, November 12, 2014 – Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of in-building wireless, intelligent site management, cell site optimization, and outside plant solutions, announces today that the ClearLink® UDIT™ [products > DAS Conditioners > Active] (Universal DAS Interface Tray), an active radio frequency (RF) distribution antenna system (DAS) conditioner and management system, has been granted compliance with SitePortal® by C Squared Systems, LLC (C² Systems). SitePortal, a web-based tool for remote monitoring and management of distributed systems and equipment, was designed to address a major gap for operators, technicians, and managers of facilities that need a means of capturing critical data. SitePortal has the ability to monitor and manage all devices used in an in-building wireless system. The ClearLink UDIT, a main component at the head-end of an in-building wireless system, conditions and monitors RF signals between a small cell or high power base station transceiver (BTS) and a DAS. “In order to receive compliance with our software program, products must go through a series of compliance tests and meet strict operational requirements,” states Scott Pollister, Director of Business Development at C² Systems. “We are pleased to announce that the ClearLink UDIT has received the SitePortal certification compliance.” “SitePortal is an integral part of DAS deployments for one of the nation’s leading wireless service providers,” explains Scott Goodrich, President of IBW, a division of Westell Technologies. “With this compliance, the UDIT can be remotely monitored and adjusted via SitePortal, giving the wireless service provider increased visibility and control to optimize and improve the performance of the DAS.” Major highlights of this integration include: the ability to monitor and forward product specific alarming information to operations and NOC personnel; provide critical performance analysis of each UDIT point of interface (POI) card; facilitate trending analysis relating to system operating temperatures; and provide spectrum analysis values to support troubleshooting and root cause discovery – all of which enhance the user’s performance and avoids costly onsite visits.
