RF X-TREME™ Ultra-Broadband Antennas

RF X-TREME UBB delivers high performance gains across both low and high frequency bands to support all LTE/4G/MIMO evolutions with a single, flexible antenna

RFS’ ultra-broadband (UBB) technology delivers higher performance gain for better coverage, reduced interference, and excellent front-to-back ratio and performance stability across frequencies. By adding UBB capabilities to the proven RF X-TREME platform, it can now support bands in both low (698-960MHz) and high (1695-2690MHz) frequency ranges with a single antenna that accommodates the full spectrum of LTE and 4G applications – including LTE700, LTE800, LTE2.6 - now and into the future. RF X-TREME UBB dramatically reduces antenna replacement issues, eliminating the need for carriers to swap out antennas with new, larger ones in order to maintain high performance as they look to support additional bands.

The antennas provide the capacity of three full band antennas by orienting them side by side to achieve high gain and optimal performance in a single package, allowing operators to support their customers’ increasing data demands. Using the entire antenna length for every band instead of the traditional method of stacking antennas on top of one another means operators can evolve from a dual-band antenna to a triple-band antenna of the same length and maintain similar gain levels. Each dipole shifts independently and includes an industry-leading vertical side lobe control for superior LTE network performance.

The RF X-TREME base station antenna’s design provides the highest gain and cross polar discrimination combined with the best vertical pattern control of any triple band antenna of its size in the industry. By providing full-band coverage on every port, RFS enables operators to now implement 4xRx and 4xMIMO on any of the higher frequency bands for excellent cell-edge performance with 30 percent fewer base stations. The design features and capabilities in the multi-band RF X-TREME platform make it ideal for adding capacity and coverage to existing sites. It is also well-suited for new sites because it allows operators to support additional bands in the future without replacing the antenna.
