Data usage on wireless networks is on the rise, and every service provider knows it. But they also understand this is a double edged sword. On the one hand, businesses will have increased business opportunities, but on the other, they need to develop their infrastructure to meet these increasing demands.
Either way, wireless operators are always looking to increase the capacity of their cell sites. Helping them with this requirement, CommScope has stated that the company is now offering Six Sector Solution.
The Six Sector Solution is part of Andrew portfolio of wireless solutions, which incorporates modern antenna technology to provide improved cell site capacity. This means wireless operators can now work with only three antennas, while prior to this, they needed six. Although the number of antennas used is reduced, the capacity will double.
The Six Sector Solution helps users to control their interference between sectors, which in turn boosts network performance. To provide sector-splitting with three antennas, the Six Sector Solution utilizes twin beam base station antennas.
The DualPol Twin Beam Capacity Teletilt Antenna from CommScope improves network capacity and enhances the usage of frequency spectrum. It also reduces Cap-Ex and Op-Ex expenditures for companies, along with sector edge roll-off.
“The massive increase in subscriber demand for mobile data is driving a major concern among wireless operators about having enough capacity to handle the traffic,” said CommScope’s Philip Sorrells, vice president of strategic marketing, Wireless. “The Six Sector Solution is an excellent way to significantly increase capacity by enabling the evolution of a traditional three sector site to a higher capacity, six sector site with the use of only three antennas.”
Recently, the company announced that it won a patent infringement case against Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Ltd. and its affiliates.
