Optimizer® Dual Polarized Antenna, 1710-2170, 65deg, 15.1dBi, 0.7m, VET, 2-12deg

This X-Polarized variable tilt antenna 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 (1710-2170 MHz).


  • Variable electrical downtilt - provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 2-12 deg.
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes (Typically <-20dB).
  • Optional remote tilt - can be retrofitted.
  • Broadband design.
  • Dual polarization.
  • Low profile for low visual impact.
