Andrew Corporation has introduced the Decibel(R) dBMicro-VTree(R)
three-sector antenna system, one of the industry's smallest cellular and
PCS network solutions for sites where real estate is limited or antenna
The dBMicro-VTree features three independent cross polarization antennas
in a single, slender unit with no visible cables that can be mounted on
locations such as rooftops, monopoles, and billboards, ideal when zoning
restrictions or space limitations prohibit larger, multiple antennas.
Andrew will display the new dBMicro-VTree at 3GSM World Congress in
Cannes, France, from February 14-17 at Hall 2, Stand G29, and at CTIA
Wireless 2005 in New Orleans from March 14-16. The dBMicro-VTree is a
key element of Andrew's dense urban network solution, also being
presented at 3GSM.
The dBMicro-VTree's three antennas are concealed in a slender 6.5 inch
(165.1 millimeter) radome for 1850-1990 MHz and 1920-2170 MHz and an 11
inch (279.4 millimeter) radome for 806-896 MHz and 902-940 MHz,
providing complete 360 degree coverage versus the 180 degree coverage
available from a single antenna. In addition, each of the antennas can
be independently adjusted so that each sector can be optimized for
elevation beam tilting.
"The dBMicro-VTree offers one of the industry's smallest designs for 360
degree coverage solutions in these frequency ranges," said Phillip
Sorrells, director of base station antenna product line management,
Andrew Corporation. "This is an ideal low-cost concealment solution for
operators and original equipment manufacturers worldwide that blends in
with its surroundings and overcomes site issues that restrict use of
more traditional antennas."

innovative and essential equipment and solutions for the global
communications infrastructure market. The company serves operators and
original equipment manufacturers from facilities in 35 countries. Andrew
