  PI MBA5FU3A Front  
  • Three foot (0.9 m) tall, single panel design supporting five beams without mount changes
  • Dual +45° and -45° cross-polarization for each beam pair
  • Separate beams support 5 sub-sectors
  • Rugged, weather resistant and highly reliable internal design
  • Enables efficient evolution of wireless networks
  • Increase site capacity through higher order sectorization
  • Avoid carrier-adds and building of new capacity sites
  • Boosts data throughput by lowering interference
  • Patented beam shaping technology maximizes coverage
  • Optimized beam crossover and spacing for maximum throughput

Overview

 

 The CCI Five-Beam Special Events Antenna is an LTE ready multi-beam antenna that supports multiple sectors (5) from a single antenna. This Five-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. This five-beam antenna has one row of five dual +45° and -45° cross-polarized beam pairs, each roughly 10 degrees apart that are used to segment large audiences into multiple sectors. The antenna enables maximum spectrum re-use by sectorization, providing as much as six 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 Five-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.
