Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and
products, has introduced the industry's most compact tower mounted
amplifier (TMA) that will provide operators with an ideal option for
coverage and capacity enhancement for 3G networks.
The new Andrew OneBase(TM) Compact TMA, at 1.5 liters, is the smallest
and lightest tower mounted amplifier in the industry, making it simple
to visually integrate at an operator's cell site or within a remote
electrical tilt-enabled base station antenna. Compliant with the Antenna
Interface Standards Group (AISG) standard that ensures basic
interoperability of antennas and control infrastructure, it is antenna
line independent and backward compatible with non-AISG UMTS sites.
OneBase Compact TMA will debut at Andrew's exhibit (Hall 1, Stand
D08-D09) February 13-16 at 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.
"The OneBase Compact TMA's advanced design features and Andrew's large
manufacturing volume help ensure the lowest-cost, highest performing TMA
available," said John Baker, vice president, technical marketing, Andrew
Base Station Subsystems Group. "It has the unique combination of size,
performance, and weight that operators are looking for in addressing
challenges with site availability and network enhancements."
The product also fits all original equipment manufacturer base station
transceiver system (BTS) configurations and is available with a
best-in-class set of accessories to support long-term deployment in
The OneBase Compact TMA is the most recent addition to the OneBase
product family, which combines Andrew products and technology into
complete solutions for use in integrated BTSs.
