Optimizer® Side-by-Side Dual Polarized Antenna, 1710-2170, 65deg, 17.5dBi, 1.3m, VET, 0-10deg, RET

Rev : B | Rev date : 24 Feb 2021
A combination of two X-Polarized antennas in a single radome, the RFS Quad-Pol antennas are designed for applications requiring a minimum number of antennas at a cell site and reduced tower loading. They offer the rugged construction of our new H Series of high band antennas that feature both high RF performance and energy efficiency. They are ideal for GSM1800, PCS, UMTS and Mobile TV networks where high gain is required. These antennas are especially well suited for MIMO applications.


  • Two x-polarized broadband panels in a single radome — reduced tower loading
  • Rugged construction — high reliability
  • Superior gain tracking — difference between UL and DL <1dB
  • Stable azimuth horizontal beamwidth
  • Low PIM — no system down-time, high call quality and reduced number of dropped calls
  • Excellent upper sidelobe suppression — allows strong mechanical tilt
  • Wideband frequency performance — enables future growth and increases flexibility
  • High front-to-back ratio
  • Optional remote tilt — can be retrofitted
  • AISG compatible remote tilt available
