Systems integrators have a new option for delivering efficient,
consistent wireless services to subscribers in sports arenas and other
large venues. CommScope’s Cell-Max™
MIMO antennas include multiple features that help operators use their
spectrum efficiently when enabling wireless voice and data traffic.
“Our MIMO stadium antennas provide consistent coverage patterns with an ultra
wide frequency range, allowing for spectrum efficiency and a reduced
need for replacing antennas in future technology deployments,” said Matt
Melester, senior vice president and general manager, Distributed
Coverage and Capacity Solutions, CommScope. “New features such as the
audible mounting bracket make these Cell-Max antennas easier to install
and more reliable.”
With the massive increase in wireless data traffic thanks to the success
of smartphones, wireless operators need to deploy dedicated equipment in
areas where usage spikes. Sports arenas and other large venues where
thousands of subscribers gather are such locations. Providing coverage
and capacity efficiently requires doing more than just installing extra
antennas. To provide services effectively, systems integrators break
down the coverage area into wireless sectors that support all users but
do not overlap. Poorly designed or poorly installed equipment can lead
to wasted spectrum and capacity for the operators and/or diminished
quality of service for customers. CommScope’s Cell-Max MIMO antennas
offer narrow beamwidths that can be reliably shaped into sectors,
decreasing the likelihood of either scenario.
“High capacity, spectrum efficient, and future ready are the terms that
best describe these new stadium antennas,” said Melester.
CommScope’s new Cell-Max MIMO antenna is dual-polarized for high
capacity across an ultra wideband range of 698–2700 MHz. It includes:
Innovative audible mounting bracket that provides an audible click for
each 2.5 degree horizontal or 5 degree vertical adjustment, making
proper installation and alignment easier.
