Optimizer® Side-by-Side Dual Polarized Antenna, 1695-2200, 65deg, 18dBi, 1.4m, VET, 0-10deg RET

A combination of two X-Polarized antennas in a single radome, this pair of variable tilt antennas provides exceptional suppression of all upper sidelobes at all downtilt angles. It also features a wide downtilt range. This antenna is optimized for performance across the entire frequency band (1695-2200 MHz). The antenna comes pre-connected with two antenna control units (ACU).


  • Variable electrical downtilt - provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 0-10 deg.
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes (Typically <-20dB).
  • Gain tracking — difference between AWS  (1695-1755 MHz) and  (2110-2200 MHz) <1dB
  • Two X-Polarised panels in a single radome.
  • Azimuth horizontal beamwidth difference (1695-1755 MHz) and  (2110-2200 MHz) <5 deg
  • Low profile for low visual impact.
  • Dual polarization; Broadband design.
  • Includes (2) AISG 2.0 Compatible ACU-A20-N or ACU-A20-S antenna control units.
