CommScope Develops Ultra-wideband Base Station Antennas

CommScope introduced a new family of ultra-wideband base station antennas for the 1710-2690 MHz frequency range.

The CommScope High-Bandwidth (HW) Family of Ultra-Wideband Base Station Antennas are available in three different configurations of two, four or six dual-polarization radiating arrays under a single radome. CommScope said its design offers potentially higher spectral efficiency through 100 percent passive intermodulation (PIM) testing performed on all base station antennas, contributing to system-wide noise containment. 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.
