  PI BSAM65RUVH8 front iso PI BSAM65RUVH8 REAR iso  
  • Eight foot (2.3 m), eight port, dual beam antenna with patented asymmetrical beam shapes optimized for LTE
  • Four wideband 33° beams to match existing 65° patterns; one pair of beams covering 1695-2400 MHz and the other pair covering 2300-2690 MHz
  • Ultra-wideband performance yields uncompromised antenna patterns in each of the 1695-2400 MHz and 2300-2690 MHz bands while eliminating the need for diplexing to deploy both bands simultaneously
  • One pair of +45° and –45° cross-polarized ports for each beam
  • Slim and low weight single panel design supporting two beams in a single antenna
  • Field replaceable, integrated AISG 2.0 compliant Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) system with independent tilt control for each beam
  • Dramatic increase in site capacity through higher order sectorization which offsets the need to build new sites
  • Boosts data throughput by minimizing interference and optimizing coverage
  • Sharp elevation beamwidth aides in network planning
  • Optimal elevation sidelobe performance
  • Exceeds minimum PIM performance requirements

Overview

 

The CCI ultra-wideband Bi-SectorTM array is a dual beam antenna with full DCS, PCS, 2100 UMTS, AWS and WCS band coverage. With two pairs of wideband ports covering 1710-2400 MHz and another two pairs covering 2300-2690 MHz, this eight foot (2.3 m) CCI Bi-Sector provides the capability to deploy not only two beams (sectors) in a single antenna but two beams for multiple frequency bands without the need for diplexing. The antenna allows separate tilt control for each beam individually, enabling maximum flexibility in network deployment. 

CCI's unique patented bi-sector technology provides optimized overlap between the pairs of asymmetric beams, lowers soft handover losses in LTE, UMTS/HSPA+ and CDMA/EVDO systems, while minimizing interference between sectors. Fast roll-off of each of the outer beams and high front-to-back ratios ensure reduced interference. This patented approach enhances data transfer rates within LTE, UMTS and EVDO network sectors and addresses “hotspots” in mobile wireless operator networks. The single panel design of the Bi-Sector Array offers the opportunity to reduce antenna count and directly replaces an existing 65° antenna without mount changes and avoids costly leasing and zoning changes. The enhanced coverage matches the existing sector footprint and minimizes the need for optimization and adjacent site changes, providing operators with significant CAPEX and OPEX cost savings.

CCI antennas are designed and produced to ISO 9001:2008 certification standards for reliability and quality in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

Applications

 
  • Delivers increased capacity and data-throughput for sites that are performance or capacity constrained
  • Provides a higher level of spectrum reuse making it an ideal solution for spectrum limited markets
  • Increase capacity without the need for new site builds or carrier adds and without using valuable spectrum resources
  • Efficient use of spectrum make it ideally suited for spectrum clearing and refarming
