CommScope Designs MIMO Antennas for Stadium Use

CommScope introduced a solution that uses MIMO antennas help operators use their spectrum efficiently in sports stadiums and other large arenas where large numbers of smartphone users gather.

CommScope’s Cell-Max MIMO antennas offer narrow beam widths that can be reliably shaped into sectors, decreasing the likelihood of overlap and wasted spectrum. The Cell-Max MIMO antenna is dual-polarized for high capacity across an ultra wideband range of 698–2700 MHz.

"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."
