Galtronics has introduced a 12-port panel antenna for next generation 4G Advanced and new 5G wireless systems.
Primarily designed for small cell fill-in, stadium and venue applications to support the 4G Advanced and new 5G Technologies including 600MHz 3500MHz and 5GHz frequency bands, the Galtronics GP2712-06367 provides 2×2 port coverage for 617-896MHz Lowband, 4×4 port coverage for 1695-2690MHz Midband, 4×4 port coverage for 3400-3800MHz CBRS and 2×2 port coverage for 5150-5925 LAA frequency bands with average 30° horizontal, and 60° vertical beam widths for all bands, except 5GHz LAA at 22° vertical beamwidth for compliance to FCC UNII-1 pattern restrictions. The GP2712-06367 is fully 5GHz UNII band pattern and gain compliant.
The GP2712-06367 offers impressive average gain specifications of 10.5dBi lowband, 11.3dBi midband, 11.8dBi 3.5GHz band and 5.1dBi 5GHz band. Port to port isolation is specified at 20dB minimum, with return loss specified at 14dB minimum for all ports. Front-to-back ratio (180°) is specified at 30dB minimum in all bands, with RF power handling of 100 watts per port for low and midband ports, 50W per port 3.5GHz and 1W per port for 5GHz. Passive Intermodulation (PIM) is specified as -153dBc maximum in low and midbands, tested with 2x20W carriers applied.
The GP2712-06367 is specified to operate over a wide -40° to +70°C temperature range, and is IP65 rated environmentally to allow indoor or outdoor operation. Product dimensions are 26.9” (684mm) wide x 13.9” (352mm) high x 5.5” (139mm) deep, with 12lbs (5.5kg) weight. Connectors (12x) are 4.3/10-F type. The GP2712-06367 antenna is available as stand alone in gray color (GP2712-06367-111), and can be used with optional 62-45-09 mounting bracket with either horizontal or vertical poles and offers a wide range of adjustment in both axis. Both antenna and optional bracket are rated to survive 150mph (241 km/h) wind speeds for outdoor applications.
