Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and products, has introduced an antenna product line that is ideal for wireless networks utilizing new broadband technologies such as WiMAX and other OFDM-based systems.

Andrew Multi-Port Array Antennas are designed for WiMAX (wireless interoperability for microwave access) and OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) mobility systems that employ multiple antenna options such as multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) and adaptive antenna systems to increase range and reliability. The multi-port antenna arrays, which operate at both 2.5 gigahertz (GHz) and 3.5 GHz frequencies, are designed specifically to support the unique radio signaling requirements of OFDM broadband wireless networks.

The new Andrew antennas, which are commercially available today, are deployed in a North American customer field trial.

"Our introduction of multi-port antenna arrays demonstrates Andrew's ability to quickly support new and innovative technologies being used by our customers," said John DeSana, group president, Antenna and Cable Products. "We are confident that these new Andrew antenna arrays will enhance the performance of our customers' OFDM-based broadband wireless systems.

"OFDM-based technologies will be one of the solutions that enable the convergence of voice, data, and video. With our strong research and engineering capabilities, Andrew will continue to deliver products that enable our customers to leverage technology investments that create new revenue opportunities and drive customer satisfaction."
