Implementing 5G in Rural and Urban Environments with Modular Tri-Sector Solutions

Apr 12, 2023

Mobile users and the telecommunications industry see 5G as the next step in ubiquitous mobile service. Yet it has proven to be a challenge for operators to bring 5G service close enough to the customer for effective service. Urban zoning commissions do not want more infrastructure, and rural councils want to keep their native beauty and sense of place.

Alpha Wireless creates antenna solutions for today’s network challenges. Our, modular, Tri-Sector antenna platform solves several of the most difficult issues with deploying 5G. These antennas install unobtrusively into any environment, providing the high performance you need.

Overcome 5G Densification Challenges

Mobile customers want fast 4G and 5G service everywhere, but zoning regulations often restrict antenna placement just where it’s needed. At Alpha Wireless, we design Tri-Sector solutions to resolve densification challenges.

Planning and Zoning Departments Reject Typical Towers

Standard macro deployments typically include unsightly towers with antennas attached and planning departments often reject them.

Alpha Wireless Tri-Sectors Easily Pass Zoning Requirements

One solution to overcoming these planning restrictions is Tri-Sector antennas. Alpha Wireless has one of the slimmest Tri-Sector form factors on the market; competing antennas are usually twice the diameter. Our Tri-Sectors are slender, fully encased and quickly pass zoning requirements.

Modular Platform

Building on the success of our original Tri-Sectors, we  have designed a compact modular Tri-Sector platform enabling you to change out sectors and stack antennas without taking down the antenna or pole.

FTDT Enables Small Size with High Performance

We achieve these antennas’ slim form factor with our patent-pending Frequency Transparent Dipole Technology™ or FTDT, which enables multiple frequencies to share the same aperture without compromising technology or performance.

Field-Upgrade Sectors and Stack Antennas on a Standing Pole

The latest innovation from Alpha Wireless is a modular platform that enables you to add and replace sectors in the field. Neutral hosts can add operators by simply adding another stack and add AAU’s for 5G upgrades. A neutral host or operator can start with a single stack and add others up to four in the field without removing the antenna or pole.

Urban and Rural Case Studies

In rural Vicarstown Ireland, a neutral host provider mounted an Alpha Wireless Tri-Sector antenna on a discrete pole serving two operators with a single antenna. In Dublin, a collaboration between mobile operators, neutral hosts and Alpha Wireless resulted in multiple new small-cell streetworks solutions, enabling the operators to add equipment in this dense urban environment.

Small Form Factor, Modularity and Field Upgradability Reduce Costs

Alpha Wireless Tri-Sector antennas have the smallest form factor on the market; the modular design ships easily, even internationally. Because of their compact size you can carry a Tri-Sector to a rooftop, eliminating crane costs, and field replaceable sectors reduce operating costs. These antennas support 5G with passive beam forming or AAU’s.
