Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist is set to showcase some of its innovative solutions for wireless and broadcast segments at the upcoming ICT mega event, CommunicAsia 2015, happening between June 2-5, 2015.
Hybriflex and Next Gen Antenna
At CommunicAsia 2015, RFS will be exhibiting its HYBRIFLEX which is a hybrid cabling solution to combine optical fiber and DC power for Remote Radio Heads (RRHs) in a single, highly flexible, lightweight aluminum corrugated cable that allows operators to ground the cabling system. It is designed for new RRH deployments and base station upgrades.
This integrated cabling solution replaces traditional multi-cable approaches, which require additional infrastructure components, long site installation times, difficult implementation accessories and training for installers who must work with the delicate optical fiber.
This antenna is an ideal choice for complex sites with the TD-LTE band. Features/Benefits – Effective polarization diversity ensured by high cross polar discrimination – Wind load thrust highly reduced – Variable electrical downtilt 0-6 degrees – AISG 2.0 – Integrated RET motor, AISG 2.0
Ultra-Broadband RF X-TREME Triple-Band Antennas
RFS has recently introduced APXVBLL20X-C and APXVBLL20X-C-I20 models of its popular RF X-TREME Triple-Band Antenna. The newest additions to RFS’ RF X-TREME family of ultra-broadband antennas facilitate triple-band site upgrades for reduced cell interference in high traffic areas.
BLL RF X-TREME antennas can be used for multiple bands such as LTE 700, LTE 800, Digital Dividend 2, CDMA, GSM, DCS, UMTS and LTE 2.6.
Variable electrical downtilt provides enhanced precision for controlling intercell interference; tilt is remotely adjustable according to AISG/3GPP standards. The new antennas offer integrated RET, manual overdrive and a tilt indicator to streamline installation and ensure ease-of-use. Integrated RET serial numbers are available on the antenna radome, which will ease on-site commissioning and secure remote mapping from OMC.
“The next generation of multi-band antennas is coming – starting with triple-band – and RFS is committed to expanding our product portfolio to give our customers exactly what they need to keep up with evolving demands and maintain a competitive advantage,” said Arnaud Baron, global product manager, base station antennas, RFS. “Our RF X-TREME antennas are the natural choice when migrating from legacy dual-band. The architecture of the new BLL models delivers some of the best gains in the market, allowing better performance in even the densest urban markets.”
BLL antennas provide optimal vertical pattern control in low band and high bands and deliver high gains in high band frequencies where attenuation is sharp, which is critical for cellular site planning. The high suppression of upper sidelobes (USL) reduces cell interference, which is a leading capacity limiter for all cellular networks.
