Microwave Backhaul Solutions

Backhaul that’s built for the long haul

Demand for backhaul throughput continues to grow. Increased traffic is straining capacity and spectrum availability, with interlink interference becoming more common.

Maintaining your network status quo is not a viable option. Because, as you know, the slightest glitch — signal interference, network disruption — will impact customer satisfaction.

CommScope can help. We offer a range of wireless backhaul solutions starting from spectrum management and link planning to a complete range of point to point microwave antennas together with all the necessary connectivity accessories.

Each is designed to the highest engineering standard and guaranteed to work seamlessly across your network.

In addition to meeting the intense data demands of today and tomorrow, CommScope backhaul solutions provide long-term savings, including:

  • Reduced tower space
  • Improved spectrum usage
  • Decreased maintenance costs

Top Promising Innovations – Sentinel Class 4 Microwave Antennas

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.

The Best Microwave Antenna Side Lobes Video Ever!

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.
