      Six/Three-Beam Special Events Antenna MBA9F-KE3A
                
       
       
         
  PI MBA9FKE3A Front ISO  
  • Three low-band beams optimized for maximum throughput over the 694-960 MHz frequency band; Six high-band beams optimized for maximum throughput over the 1695-2690 MHz frequency band
  • Separate beams support three low-band and six high-band sub-sectors
  • Dual +/- 45° cross-polarization for each beam pair
  • Six low-band ports simultaneously covering LTE 700 MHz, 800 MHz, Cellular 850 MHz and GSM 900 MHz bands
  • Twelve high-band ports simultaneously covering DCS 1800 MHz, PCS 1900 MHz, AWS & AWS-3, UMTS 2100 MHz, WCS 2300 MHz and BRS 2600 MHz bands
  • Excellent PIM performance
  • Increases site capacity through higher order sectorization
  • Optimized interbeam azimuth crossover and azimuth offsets for maximum throughput
  • Boosts data throughput by lowering interference

Overview

 

The CCI Six/Three Beam Special Events Antenna  simultaneously supports (6) high-band and (3) low-band sectors from a single antenna. This Six/Three-Beam Antenna is intended for use at sporting and entertainment venues where social media and the ability to share photos and videos demand high capacity and high data rates. The high band ports provide coverage for DCS 1800 MHz, PCS 1900 MHz, AWS and AWS-3 1695/2180 MHz, UMTS 2100 MHz, WCS 2300 MHz and BRS 2600 MHz bands while the low band ports provide LTE 700 MHz, 800 MHz, Cellular 850 MHz and GSM 900 MHz band capability in a compact, 3.4 ft (1.0 m) high single enclosure. Each beam is fed by a pair of +45° and -45° cross-polarized ports. The high band beams are each roughly 15 degrees apart and each pair are evenly juxtaposed on the three low band beams. This antenna segments large audiences into multiple sectors thus enabling maximum spectrum re-use by sectorization, providing as much as nine times increase in network capacity. Our unique beam shaping technology provides fast roll off between beams, minimizing interference between sectors thus increasing the carrier to interference plus noise (CINR) ratio and lowering soft handover losses in LTE, UMTS/HSPA+ and CDMA/EVDO networks. Such an 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 CCI Six/Three-Beam Special Event Antenna offers the opportunity to reduce antenna count and directly replaces multiple narrow beam antennas. The antenna minimizes the need for optimization as each beam is spaced optimally for maximum throughput thus providing 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

 
  • Upgrade of data-throughput or capacity constrained sites
  • Spectrum limited markets
  • Deferral of CDMA/EVDO or UTMS/HSPA+ carrier adds
