The radio system consists of a master unit (MU), fibre-fed repeaters and a passive coaxial cable antenna network. The mobile operators’ base stations and a channel selective repeater for the TETRA public safety network are connected to the MU. The signals from the different systems are combined and optically distributed via fiber to remote units positioned in the hospital.

The remotes convert the optical signal and distribute it to separate power amplifiers for TETRA, 3G and 4G. The amplified signals are combined and sent out to the antenna network.
