Andrew Corporation (NASDAQ:ANDW) has developed the industry's most
efficient, high power multi-carrier power amplifier--called OneBase(TM)

one-stop shop for all RF base station hardware from a trusted source.
OneBase enables our customers to confidently refocus their valuable
engineering resources to other important and high-value endeavors."
OneBase Cell Extender utilizes feed-forward amplifier correction
technology in both the cellular and PCS (personal communication service)
frequency bands and can transmit CDMA (code division multiple access),
GSM (global system for mobile communications), and all third-generation
(3G) air interface protocols simultaneously.
"OneBase Cell Extender will offer higher efficiency than any other
signal-boosting product available today," Miller said. "This efficiency
equates to lower operating costs for our customers."
