Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and products, has introduced a new antenna designed to meet the needs of carriers establishing WiMAX wireless networks in the 2.5 gigahertz (2.3-2.7 GHz) spectrum.

The new Andrew WiMAX 2.5 GHz Antenna features Andrews patented Teletilt® variable electrical downtilt design. This feature enables the antenna to be adjusted remotely for temporary changes in network usage patterns. With Teletilt, the antennas electrical downtilt can be changed at any time to optimize network coverage and minimize site-to-site interference within the network.

The product will be on display as part of Andrews exhibit (booth 301) September 25-27 at WiMAX World 2007 at Chicagos McCormick Place.

The Andrew WiMAX 2.5 GHz Antenna promises new levels of high-speed data communications for mobile and fixed users, said Mike Guerin, vice president, Antenna and Cable Products, Andrew Corporation. Our new WiMAX 2.5 GHz model will help speed smooth deployment of these networks by helping them quickly adjust to varied urban and rural environments.

The Andrew WiMAX 2.5 GHz Antenna is designed to extend coverage for both mobile and fixed WiMAX networks and expands on Andrews existing 2.5GHz and 3.5 GHz WiMAX antenna portfolio. The new WiMAX 2.5 GHz model is a 65 degree azimuth beamwidth, dual-polarized base station antenna that provides 18 dBi of gain and up to 10 degrees of electrical downtilt to extend coverage and minimize interference.

Because the antenna can be adjusted remotely through Andrews Teletilt design, technicians need not physically access base stations to adjust antennas for user traffic patterns that may vary day-to-day, or even hour-to-hour. The Andrew WiMAX 2.5 GHz Antenna offers similar flexibility for control of interference. The new antenna can be configured so several are controlled remotely from one network operations center, further increasing efficiency.

Andrew expects strong demand for the antenna in areas such as the US, South America, Europe and Asia where 2.5 GHz networks are planned or are under construction.
