New RFS Optimizer CELlite launched at CommunicAsia 2008
Assisting fast-track wireless network deployments across the globe, Radio Frequency Systems will launch the new high-performance Optimizer CELlite base station antenna (BSA) series at Singapore’s CommunicAsia 2008 exhibition. The slimline dual-polarized Optimizer CELlite antenna series complements RFS’s popular vertically-polarized CELlite variant, providing users with an extremely stable and lightweight antenna solution.
The new Optimizer CELlite antenna series supports CDMA (806-870MHz), and GSM (870 to 960MHz) frequency bands, and exhibits the superior performance of the RFS Optimizer antenna family—including upper side lobe suppression typically better than 18dB across the entire frequency range, high gain, and impressive front-to-back ratio (typically around 28dB).
According to Rick Yang, RFS Area Product Manager Wireless Infrastructure Solutions, the latest addition to RFS’s world-renowned Optimizer antenna suite features a robust microstripline power feed system constructed from monolithic aluminum, in place of the traditional cabled feed system. “This, coupled with the antenna’s one-piece panel construction and reduced number of weld joints, delivers advanced passive intermodulation (PIM) performance,” he said. “Optimized PIM performance plays a significant role in maximizing call quality and avoiding dropped calls—crucial in high-capacity networks.”
The new Optimizer CELlite antenna series also provides network operators with new levels of deployment and operational flexibility. “The new Optimizer CELlite BSA has been designed to accommodate the rapid roll-out of wireless networks in densely populated regions,” said Yang. “Its lightweight construction makes it quick and easy to install, while its advanced RF performance makes it ideal for providing coverage in high-capacity wireless networks.”
Supporting all services between 806MHz and 960MHz, the first release of RFS’s new Optimizer CELlite antenna series will comprise three variants—the 2m (6.5ft) 0-degree fixed-tilt (APX86-906515S-CT0), the 2.6m (8.5ft) 0-degree fixed-tilt (APX86-906516S-CT0), and the 2.6m (8.5ft) six-degree fixed-tilt (APX86-906516S-CT6) “The Optimizer CELlite antenna with six-degree downtilt is the ideal ready-made solution for networks with high levels of call traffic that require smaller coverage cells,” said Yang. “The combination of flexibility and performance of the Optimizer CELlite is synonymous with RFS’s reliable Optimizer antenna range.”
