RF X-TREME™ Cross Polarized Penta-Band Antenna, 698-960/4x1710-2690MHz, 65deg, 16-18dBi, 2.6m, VET, 0-10deg, 4.3-10 Connectors, Integrated RET & Bias-Tee

This Penta-band antenna (10 ports) includes Ultra-Broadband & multi-band services for site solutions in high traffic areas. It can be used for multiple bands such as LTE700, LTE800, CDMA, GSM, DCS, PCS, AWS, UMTS, LTE1800, LTE2300 and LTE 2600. It is an ideal choice for site upgrades and new deployments where five frequency bands, or MIMO/4 RX diversity, is used to add capacity and increase coverage. The antenna has an integrated remote electrical tilt (RET) solution on all 5 cross-polar antenna arrays for easy installation. Two AISG connectors are located on the antenna bottom plate. Additionally, one low-band port is equipped with a Bias-Tee port to implement the AISG interface.


  • Penta-band cross polarized antenna with 5 arrays (10 ports), 1x 698-960/4x 1710-2690, for complex system configurations and maximum flexibility
  • Ultra-broadband design for LTE700, LTE800, LTE1800 and LTE2600 compatibility
  • Variable electrical downtilt — provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference
  • The tilt is infield adjustable 0-10 deg on each cross polarized antennas
  • Enable MiMo 4x2 or 4-way RX diversity — ideal solution for LTE advanced
  • Integrated Remote Tilt — reduces installation time
  • AISG 2.0 interface towards BTS or RRH — can be used by all AISG compliant OEMs
  • High suppression of upper sidelobes — reduces cell interference
  • Design incorporates low windload and low weight — minimizes tower loading
  • Quick and easy to install — reduces installation time and costs
  • High reliability — designed to last in a tower top environment
  • Integrated Bias-Tee on the low band port
