With over a decade’s experience designing and manufacturing 3.5 GHz-capable antenna solutions, Alpha Wireless puts the spotlight on the AW3161 panel antenna, emphasising it superior pattern control.
“The AW3161 65° variable tilt, 4 port panel antenna has been designed for optimal radiation patterns across the tilt range to minimise interference and significantly improve overall network performance,” says Martin Barrett, Global Director Solution Development.
Reduced interference thanks to upper side-lobe suppression as well as variable tilt to optimise tuning in the overall network together with a discreet design make the AW3161 a seamless solution for fixed wireless broadband. “When the main beam is tilted using an optimised Alpha Wireless antenna, users at the Cell Edge of a neighbouring sector will experience a higher Signal to Noise ratio – substantially improving data rates,” explains Barrett.
With most countries now having approved 5G service on this midrange frequency, and with Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) recently becoming a commercial reality in the US, opening up the 3.5GHz band, it’s the perfect time to be launching this product.
There are a limited number of macro and panel antennas available to support 3.5 GHz bands so 3.5 GHz-capable antennas such as the AW3161 will be critical for OEMs, cable and network operators that require superior pattern control for fixed wireless broadband – enhancing network reliability and improving overall quality of service.
