Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has introduced the APXVBLL20X-C and APXVBLL20X-C-I20 models of its RF X-TREME Triple-Band Antenna. The latest 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.
With RF X-TREME, RFS provides the capacity of three full-band antennas by orienting them side-by-side to achieve high gain and optimal performance in a single package. Providing full-band coverage on every port enables operators to implement 4xRx and 4xMIMO on higher frequency bands for cell-edge performance with fewer base stations.
The aerodynamic BLL models support 694-2690MHz frequency bands. They are triple-band cross-polarized with three arrays (6 ports), 1×694-960 / 2×1695-2690. The radome design reduces wind load and minimizes tower loading. RFS triple-band antennas offer broad variable tilt range from 0-10 degrees, beneficial in dense areas, while maintaining 28dB isolation premium performance.
Variable electrical downtilt enhances precision for controlling intercell interference; tilt is remotely adjustable according to AISG/3GPP standards. The antennas offer integrated RET, manual overdrive and tilt indicator to streamline installation and ease-of-use. Integrated RET serial numbers on the antenna radome ease on-site commissioning and secure remote mapping from OMC. www.rfsworld.com
