Cell Site Stories: Finding and Solving External iDEN Interference in an 850 MHz Cellular Network

Interference can cause serious impairment to wireless network quality. CommScope worked with a network operator recently who was specifically concerned with uplink interference in the 850 MHz band. CommScope offered a plan to develop an interference mitigation filter (IMF) tailored to solve the operator’s problem. See today’s blog post by Cesar Calderon to learn how the IMF impacted network performance.

Combiners Making Site Sharing Easier for Ooredoo Tunisia

Introducing a passive unit in the RF path usually leads to an insertion loss that reduces the available power for coverage and capacity. To minimize this power loss, CommScope developed a new type of in-band combiners. Because of their flexibility, CommScope low loss combiners are ideal for site-sharing applications where the antenna, jumpers and feeder cables are shared between two or three operators. Learn how CommScope’s low loss combiners are helping Ooredoo Tunisia by reading today’s blog post.

Etisalat UAE Utilizes CommScope Low Loss Combiners

Etisalat UAE has been forced to add new antennas at existing sites to deliver increased capacity for higher data throughput. CommScope’s customized low-loss combiners are enabling Etisalat to expand their network on existing sites—without a major CapEx investment. CommScope has developed a new type of in-band combiner designed to deliver only 0.5 dB of insertion loss. To learn more, see today’s blog post by Paolo Di Carne.
