New frequency bands are being rolled out in the wireless industry. CommScope is supporting them with ultra-wideband antennas, including the narrowest 1400 MHz capable multiband antenna on the market today. Marty Zimmerman explains more in this video blog, posted in anticipation of Mobile World Congress 2017.

In a wireless network, polarization diversity makes it possible for operators to deploy one base station antenna instead of two while achieving the required diversity needed for reliable communications. DualPol was the brand name for the first polarization diversity antennas, which became part of CommScope through company acquisitions. Today, CommScope is a leader in mobile network antenna technology. Learn more about the history of this innovation in today’s blog post by Lou Meyer.

Today’s blog post announces one of the top 10 innovations made by CommScope (or one of its acquired companies)—base station antenna beam tilting. This innovation enabled wireless network operators to improve their coverage areas and network performance. The ability to adjust, optimize and control antenna patterns remains a key tool for delivering high-performing wireless networks to users, says blog author Lou Meyer.

Remote electrical tilt (RET) is a unique base station antenna capability that enables operators to make adjustments to their networks remotely without having to climb up a cell tower and move antennas physically. A smart bias tee is part of a RET system, and an innovative way to implement the smart bias tee is to have it built directly into the antenna. Rob Cameron explains the technical details in today’s blog post.
