CommScope said it is making the most comprehensive upgrade to its microwave antenna portfolio in decades.
The leader in microwave antennas is overhauling its entire long-haul antenna portfolio to significantly improve the coverage, capacity and cost-effectiveness of wireless backhaul for all applications.
CommScope is introducing two new long-haul antenna product lines – USX and HX – into its Sentinel and ValuLine portfolios, which will ultimately replace its existing long-haul antennas. The new antennas provide next generation performance for cellular, broadcast, telecom and private networks.
As part of CommScope’s Sentinel range, the new USX antennas meet or exceed Class 4 standards as defined by the ETSI. Their superior radiation patterns provide maximum protection against interference, helping backhaul links operate at their highest data rates for longer, claims CommScope. USX antennas retain the high performing cross-polarization technology of CommScope’s existing HSX backhaul antennas.
The new ValuLine HX antennas deliver substantially improved radiation pattern envelopes and cross-polarization compared to other Class 3 antennas. These performance improvements enable network operators to balance performance and deployment cost where high network congestion is not an issue and without the additional cost of upgrading to a full USX antenna.
