Overview

 

The CCI 2.3 GHz Bi-SectorTM array is a dual beam antenna with full 2.3 GHz band coverage. With four pairs of wideband ports covering 2300-2400 MHz, this three and a half foot (1.0 m) CCI Bi-Sector provides the capability to deploy two sectors of 4×4 Multiple-input Multiple-output (MIMO) in the 2.3 GHz band. On this Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) antenna all Left beams are linked and controlled with one RET motor and all Right beam are linked and controlled by a second RET motor, 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
  • Two sectors of 4×4 MIMO on the 2.3 GHz band
