Plenum-rated, LTE-ready antennas for In-building applications feature premium PIM-rating

New plenum-rated Omni-directional antennas can be concealed for improved aesthetics while meeting stringent building codes


RFS introduces its I-ATO3-698/2700 Series of plenum-rated, PIM-certified omni-directional antennas. The RFS portfolio of omni-directional antennas is designed for broadband in-building distribution of modern wireless communication systems such as LTE, GSM, CDMA, PCS, 3G, WiFi, WLAN services. The I-ATO3 series is LTE-ready and ensures the highest performance for in-building passive DAS applications. It has an optimized design to avoid passive intermodulation due to its plenum-rated, helically corrugated low-loss pigtail cable with copper outer conductor and factory attached N female connector. Added benefits specific to the I-ATO3 series include an improved Passive Intermodulation (PIM) rating (150 dBc @ 2x20W), and the virtually non-existent upper side lobe reduces interference with cells on other floors, delivering better patterns and superior gain and directivity. Made in the USA, RFS’ portfolio of products for indoor applications also includes plenum-rated cables, connectors, tools and jumpers – enabling RFS to provide all components required to support indoor complete end-to-end passive DAS installations.
