CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for
communications networks, has introduced a new family of ultra-wideband
base station antennas that addresses wireless operators’ performance and
operational cost needs of today, while preparing for bandwidth growth
and additional radio spectrum availability in the future.
High-Bandwidth (HW) Family of Ultra-Wideband Base Station Antennas,
available immediately, provide a future-proof antenna solution for the
1710-2690 MHz frequency range that is ideal for supporting additional
licensed frequencies that are not currently available.
“CommScope’s new family of high performance, ultra-wideband antennas
will be very beneficial for the forward-looking operator who may need to
deploy additional radio frequency spectrum and support higher bandwidth
demands in the future,” said Ray Butler, vice president, Product Line
and Engineering, Base Station Antennas. “With the HW family, an operator
can install the relevant model today that will not only cover its
current frequency requirements but also provide exceptional performance
in the future as new spectrum becomes available. In the past, the
operator would have had to deploy two or three separate antennas in
order to support the same amount of bandwidth.”
HW ultra-wideband base station antennas are available in three
different configurations of two, four or six dual-polarization radiating
arrays under a single radome. The forward-looking design of the HW
family provides a unique set of benefits, including:
Superior, repeatable electrical performance from every unit
Potentially higher spectral efficiency through 100 percent passive
intermodulation (PIM) testing performed on all base station
antennas, contributing to system-wide noise containment
Design features that yields twice the bandwidth of typical high-band
Small physical footprint for deployment in areas with highly
Consolidated design that can lead to fewer antennas and lower-cost
Each antenna in the HW family can be deployed in a variety of 2G, 2.5G,
3G and 4G environments, including LTE, UMTS, CDMA, GSM, and WiMAX.
Operators can upgrade or switch to different technologies or frequencies
as their needs change.
The CommScope family of HW antennas is just part of a larger,
of base station antennas consisting of low band, high band, and
multi-band solutions. Each is designed to help maximize a network’s
current performance through better spectral efficiency, reduced PIM and
lower capital and operational expenses.
