Phazar Antenna Unveils Expanded Range of DAS Antennas
Eleven new DAS antennas will be unveiled by Phazar Antenna (News - Alert) at the CTIA show according to an announcement made by PHAZAR CORP, the parent company of Phazar Antenna. With the new introductions, the broadest and most extensive range of DAS antennas in the industry are now offered by Phazar.
Six antennas for L-Band frequencies will be unveiled. Five new models offering multiple frequencies for 700 MHz, 850 MHz, AWS & PCS bands will be also introduced. DAS or Distributed Antenna Systems “neutral hosts” and carriers will be therefore provided more options to cover all the current frequencies used for mobile communications and 4G performance.
Antennas covering 698 to 940 MHz and 1710 to 2155 MHz will be combined by the Dual and Quad antennas in one single radome. The frequencies that all the carriers use for mobile communication services will then be satisfied. The antennas are brought closer to the user as they can be used on utility poles, street lights, monopoles or on building sites. The already established macro-cell sites will be also complemented with these antennas.
1525 to 1661 MHz is covered by L-Band frequencies. Omni-directional L-Band line antennas can be mounted on street lights and utility poles. They are available in 24 and 48 inch heights. An antenna that can support either MIMO or LTE (News - Alert) technology for higher capacity site areas is provided by dual omni-directional antennas offered in a single radome.
With a 65 degree horizontal beam-width, the 24 inch Dual-Polarized directional antenna can be mounted in outdoor stadiums, indoor DAS systems or on monopoles. Ideal for a corridor type application, this antenna can also accommodate MIMO or LTE technology systems.
Adjustment in 3 axis on utility poles is allowed with special mounting hardware. Optimum (News - Alert) performance will be assured as the special hardware will ensure that the DAS antennas are perpendicular to the horizon. The DAS antennas will fit properly on street lights up to 4.7 inch with a variety of base adapters offered. Various city ordinances that are applied by urban authorities will be also accommodated with the multiple band antennas which are available in 96 inch, 48 inch and 22 inch heights.
