Add 5G to towers without adding costs
In our final MWC MasterTalk for 2021, we talk Macro sites with Rani Makke, Base Station Antenna Director at RFS. Limited space at base station sites is a headache that has plagued operators for years, and the rising demand for connectivity and advent of 5G only serves to compound this. Operators and installers need to find a way to accommodate 5G equipment without impacting 3G and 4G infrastructure as an absolute priority.
Rani looks at how RFS is continuing to serve customers facing this problem with a portfolio of base station innovations, each designed to address the specific challenges operators are facing. In particular, he discusses RFS’s latest industry development; a compact platform antenna that is narrower than ever before and designed to reduce windload and the associated reinforcement costs, simplifying sites without compromising performance.
