RF X-TREME™ Cross Polarized Triple Band Antenna, 698-2170MHz, 65deg, 13.3/16.0/16.3dBi, 1.2m, VET, 0-8deg, RET

The new RF X-TREME base station antenna 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. It is an ideal choice for site upgrades and new deployments where three frequency bands, or MIMO/4 RX diversity, is used to add capacity and increase coverage. Only 12 inches wide and 1.2 meters high, it maintains the size of a dual band antenna, while adding a third antenna path with no compromise in RF performance. Reflecting RFS� on-going commitment for 4G technologies, it can be used for multiple bands such as LTE700, CDMA850, PCS1900 and AWS2100. This multi-band antenna features superior pattern symmetry and a phase shifter for each radiating dipole providing exceptional patterns at all tilt settings. It is also available with an optional, integrated and field replaceable AISG 2.0 antenna control unit (ACU) for remote electrical tilt (RET) compatibility.


  • Cross polarization — triple band version with 6 ports (2x 698-894 MHz and 4x 1710-2170 MHz)
  • One phase shifter per radiating element — improves radiating patterns
  • Superior X-Pol Discrimination — improves Rx diversity
  • Integrated Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) — reduces installation time and increases reliability
  • High suppression of upper sidelobes — reduces cell interference
  • Enhanced tilt range from 0 to 8 degrees — ideal for applications in dense areas
  • Variable electrical downtilt — provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference
  • High reliability — designed to last in a tower top environment
  • Design incorporates low windload and low weight — minimizes tower loading
  • Quick and easy to install — reduces installation time and costs
