Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications equipment and systems, has introduced two new earth station antenna (ESA) products designed to provide world class Andrew quality at prices competitive with less capable units available elsewhere.

The two new lines, the Andrew 4 Meter Class High Value ESA and the pre-engineered Andrew Earth Station Terminals (EST), meet the cost of ownership needs of customers and systems integrators worldwide. They will be introduced this week at the Satellite 2007 show in Washington, D.C.

The cost of purchasing an antenna and related system are only part of its ownership cost, said Russell Dearnley, director, Earth Station Antennas and Systems, Satellite Communications, Andrew Corporation. That initial savings can be quickly consumed by higher costs for shipping, installation, and support of less reliable systems. These new Andrew products are designed to provide a lower cost of ownership, while leveraging Andrews wealth of experience in serving the needs of specific industries and world regions.

The new products are well suited for the needs of customers and systems integrators operating in various industries.

4 Meter Class High Value ESA

The Andrew 4 Meter Class High Value ESA is well suited for emerging markets, such as Africa, Latin America, and Asia, which require robust systems with a low cost of ownership. The new 4 meter class antenna will replace Andrews existing low cost 3.7 meter product with a view of total cost of ownership, augmenting Andrews premier 4 meter class antenna offering and Andrews full line of ESA offerings in use to transmit signals to and from satellites for broadcast, cellular backhaul, and general satellite applications.

The unit offers advantages that provide lower cost and ease of use for Andrew customers around the world. For example, it can be installed without a crane, and moved inside buildings via regular elevators and stairwells. In addition, transport costs are lower because Andrew can load up to six units per 20 foot container.

Earth Station Terminals

Andrew is bringing to market several new pre-engineered Earth Station Terminals that provide major savings by eliminating the need for custom design. They provide cost-effective one- and two-way satellite communications for specialized customer segments. Andrew anticipates strong demand for these units in cellular backhaul, and single carrier per channel applications for public and private broadcast networks. The pre-engineered Earth Station Terminals are a teaming of Andrews 4 meter and 5 meter class antennas, with a number of standardized electronic packages to provide a quick-to-deploy solution for various bandwidth requirements.

Andrews Satellite Communications Group, part of the Antenna and Cable Products Segment, provides a complete line of antennas from 46 centimeters to 11.5 meters for all enterprise, government/military, and consumer satellite communications applications. Andrew-designed and -built productswhich cover C, Ku, K, X, and the emerging Ka bandinclude approved earth station antenna hubs and gateways for broadband and broadcast, VSAT broadband antennas for consumer and enterprise customers, DBS antennas for home satellite broadcast systems, and complete installation and testing services.
