Dual Band Microwave Antennas
RFS has developed a new dual band antenna solution to enable mobile operators to keep up with increasing capacity demands, better utilize available spectrum, reduce installation costs, and cut down on tower leasing fees. The compact 1ft and 2ft dual band solutions will support a traditional frequency band plus the higher frequency E-Band from a single antenna. The ability to combine a low frequency band that has good propagation properties and the higher frequency with greater capacity will allow carriers to leverage the benefits of both bands - supporting higher capacities and broader availability over longer distances. Carrier aggregation with a single dual band antenna has been demonstrated to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and result in CAPEX/OPEX savings by minimizing transportation needs, installation time, and tower loading and rental fees.
|Lower installation and transportation costs|| |
Ensures an overall CAPEX savings
|Less load on the link compared to two antennas||Reduces tower fees and overall OPEX savings|
|Pairs the E-Band with traditional frequencies||Provides a broader band and higher capacity|
