      Three-Beam Special Events Antenna MBA3F-K3A
                
       
       
         
  PI MBA3FK3A Front ISO  
  • Three low-band beams optimized for maximum throughput over the 694-960 MHz frequency band
  • Separate beams support three low-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
  • 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 Three Beam Special Events Antenna  simultaneously supports (3) low-band sectors from a single antenna. This 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 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. This antenna segments large audiences into multiple sectors thus enabling maximum spectrum re-use by sectorization, providing as much as three 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 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
