- Buyers Guide
The demands of cost reduction and greater efficiency in cellular base station design are leading to a rapidly growing market for remote radio heads. According to a new study from ABI Research, this market is on track to exceed a value of $1 billion in 2017. Cellular base stations are now undergoing a design revolution. A base station was traditionally a rack of equipment inside a shelter. That design is now becoming anachronistic because it is expensive, and because the required coaxial cable running up the tower to the antennas often results in significant losses of power.
The MBA6-3.5DS45/2045 Multi-beam Hub Base Station Antenna has been developed by Cobham Antenna Systems, Microwave Antennas to enable MIMO radio system operators to meet their goal of 1 Gbps/km2 anywhere within a cell.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that EMPro 2012 will be demonstrated at European Microwave Week (Booth 114), Oct. 29-Nov. 1, RAI, Amsterdam.
Demonstrates how E/D PHEMT processes now facilitate analog functions like phase shifters and attenuators with state of the art performance on the same chip as digital control functions
Discusses the development of low cost, miniature, four-way transceivers in Ku-Band for MIMO wireless communication systems
L-com Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products has introduced two new HyperLink® brand horizontal polarized waveguide omnidirectional antennas. These rugged new 2.4 GHz antennas are available in 9 dBi and 13 dBi versions.
Agilent Technologies Inc. and the Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame announced that they will establish a collaborative research initiative aimed at developing the next generation of multiple-input, multiple-output wireless technologies.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced shipment of EMPro 2012, its 3-D electromagnetic simulation software.
Cassidian has developed a new generation of transmit and receive modules which give the new Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars previously unattained performance, the company claims.
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced that it has introduced a new addition to the CompactLine® series of microwave antennas with the release of the 6 GHz Category A SB6-W60B. Featuring a wind-tunnel tested design suited for both tight urban locations and rugged outposts, the SB6-W60B offers a superior radiation pattern for consistent performance with less interference.
