Optimizer® Dual-Band Dual Polarized, 870-2170, 65deg, 14.4/17.0/17.0dBi, 1.3m, VET, 0-10/2-10deg

Dual band, cross polarized GSM/DCS-UMTS panel antenna with independent variable electrical tilt for high traffic areas where capacity enhancement can be provided by use of dual 900/1800-2170MHz services.


  • Independent control of electrical downtilt for 900 and 1800-2170MHz bands.
  • Easy swap—out of GSM panel for dual band panel & upgrade to UMTS.
  • Low profile for low visual impact.
  • High upper sidelobe suppression.
  • Quick and easy to adjust.
  • Continuously variable downtilt provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference.
  • High front-to-back ratio.
  • Radome can be painted to blend with environment.
