Alpha Wireless’ commitment to problem-solving is set to shine again this month with the launch of its Back-to-Back Antenna, a new solution tackling the problem of network capacity in the busiest areas.
Rural and hard-to-reach locations usually get the lion’s share of the attention when looking at new ways to create network coverage, but often the major challenge is finding a way to address high user volume in urban areas.
There are busy street locations where wireless network operators are facing a demand that pushes network capacity to and beyond its limits. Hundreds or thousands of users hit these spots each day, hungry for a satisfactory experience and ready to demand more from the wireless network.
Thanks to recent innovations in small cells, this January Alpha Wireless is releasing its Back-to-Back Antenna, opening new avenues of capacity to these overburdened networks.
This powerful small cell has two antennas that are orientated Back-to-Back, enabling signals to be focused along two transmission paths. Its small compact form means it can be adjusted left and right +/-30° to allow fine tuning of RF signal paths.
RF power is focused on two target areas, enabling better use of power. It features manual electrical adjustable down tilt ranging from 2 degrees to 10 degrees.
“Innovation is a key focus for Alpha Wireless. Our goal is to produce high quality solutions that not only address current challenges, but also problems that are likely to arise in the not-to-distant future, and that’s why we’re particularly excited about the Back-to-Back Antenna,” Alpha Wireless CEO Fergal Lawlor says.
“We spend a lot of time talking to players right across the industry and recognise that limited capacity in high density locations is a growing problem. With networks only set to come under more pressure with the roll-out of 5G and other technology advances, addressing this issue now is vital,” Alpha Wireless Director Solution Development North America, Martin Barrett says.
Not only is the Back-to-Back Antenna high functioning, it fulfils the ongoing need for discreet solutions that don’t detract from the visual aesthetics of an area.
“This antenna once again reflects Alpha Wireless’ aim to provide solutions that have a low visual impact – whether it’s wall-mounted, on a pole top or on a lamp post, the Back-to-Back Antenna is designed to blend in with its surroundings,” Lawlor says.
