Class 4 microwave antennas have very low side lobes in the antenna radiation pattern, so they minimize interference with adjacent antennas. CommScope’s Sentinel antenna was the first cost-effective, prime focus Class 4 compliant antenna. Class 4 antennas are a key enabler for efficient spectrum use and low-interference networks, which are essential with the coming of 5G and the Internet of Things. See this blog post for more information about one of CommScope’s top promising technologies.

Today’s blogger Jim Syme admits he doesn’t really know if this new CommScope video is the best ever about microwave antenna side lobes. But he thinks so, and it does an awesome job in explaining what microwave antenna side lobes are and why they are so important to microwave network performance. Check out the video and see if you agree.

Today’s blog post introduces one of the top 20 innovations that has come from CommScope (or one of its acquired companies) over the past 40 years—the dual reflector antenna feed for microwave antennas. The dual reflector feed made it possible to manufacture low-profile microwave antennas in high volume to meet surging demand during the roll-out of the first GSM networks. See today’s post by John Cole for more about this historical innovation.

Microwave antennas have emerged as a great option for long-distance communications. This technology finds is roots in other historical communications inventions. If you want to learn more about microwave fundaments, James Donovan explains that the Infrastructure Academy has a course designed especially for you.
