Small in size, big in functionality

Alpha Wireless releases new 600 MHz AltaFlex Compact Canister

The launch of the AW3713 AltaFlex Compact Canister represents an extremely efficient way to add infill coverage and capacity. A highly versatile antenna solution suitable for both small cell or macro deployments, it has been engineered to provide superior RF performance. Its small size and slim aesthetic design enables it to blend into its surroundings — opening access to a wider choice of sites.

According to RCR Wireless, Canadian operators invested heavily in this low band spectrum after the recent auction in April while T-Mobile in the US has reiterated the importance of the 600 MHz portfolio with its plan to offer a nationwide 5G service in 2020.“The new low band capability makes this antenna an ideal solution for Canadian and US operators adding 600 MHz frequency bands to their networks,” says Martin Barrett, Director Solution Development at Alpha Wireless.

In areas where a discrete antenna is essential or a provider is working with height and diameter limitations, the AltaFlex Compact Canister’s 78″ height and 14″ diameter can be successfully deployed on either a pole top or rooftop in communities around the world.

With nine AISG controlled eRETs per canister enabling individual radiator column tilt control, the extremely small AltaFlex Compact brings maximum RET functionality associated with a macro antenna.

“The wireless industry moves fast, and we do too, operating a 90-day turnaround from conception to reality. At Alpha Wireless, we are committed to building relationships that enable us to provide fast and efficient solutions with minimal fuss,” adds Barrett.
