HICKORY, N.C. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Wireless operators are adding more cell sites and more sectors to existing sites to meet the ballooning use of bandwidth by consumers. Complicating such “cell densification” efforts is the lack of space for new cell sites, challenging aesthetic requirements and tower leasing costs. CommScope is addressing these challenges with an assortment of new Andrew® small antenna technology that makes cell densification easier.

Network operators use multiple frequency bands and multiple air-interface technologies to meet subscriber demand, which typically means larger antennas. CommScope’s small antenna technology enables physically smaller base station antennas to handle these requirements while offering superior performance. CommScope has three distinct initiatives aimed at this application requirement.
For macro cell sites:
For smaller cell sites, which are critical to network densification:
“Wireless networks need lots of options to drive additional capacity via overall network densification, and small antenna technology will play a major role in that area,” said Philip Sorrells, vice president of wireless strategic marketing, CommScope. “Small antenna technology helps solve capacity problems in ways that provide great performance, yet are easy to install, zone and even hide when needed.”
To learn more about Andrew small antenna technology, schedule a meeting with CommScope antenna experts at CTIA’s Super Mobility Week, September 9–11 in Las Vegas.
