Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and products, has introduced the industry’s smallest FCC Part 101, Category A 11 gigahertz terrestrial microwave antenna.

At just 800 millimeters (2.6 feet) in diameter, this ValuLine® III Next Generation terrestrial microwave antenna is more than 15 percent smaller than any other FCC Part 101, Category A compliant 11 GHz microwave antenna available. This compact size minimizes the space required on towers or roofs, resulting in lower leasing costs, minimized tower loading, and simplified compliance with zoning requirements.

“This is a breakthrough for customers who are looking for a smaller, more lightweight, and rugged antenna for point-to-point communications,” said Mike Guerin, vice president, Antenna and Cable Products, Andrew Corporation. “The small footprint of ValuLine III provides more options for our customers, especially in municipal areas. It is a perfect complement to Andrew’s complete portfolio of products for backhauling telecommunications traffic in any situation.”
