Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced it has extended its CompactLine® EASY family of microwave antennas with two new E-Band (71-86GHz) antennas, the SB1-W800C and the SC2-W800BYYY. RFS E-Band antennas provide the optimal combination of electrical and mechanical performance coupled with cost-effectiveness.

Like all RFS CompactLine antennas, these new additions are designed for ease-of-use in five key areas: network design, transport, deployment, installation and upgrade. The new frequency band antennas are currently available in 1ft or 2ft options. CompactLine E-Band antennas have an optimized packaging volume, with the most compact design on the market and a low weight of 6kg (SB1) and 9kg (SC2) that reduces zoning challenges and installation costs.

“RFS’ SB1 and SC2 antennas for the E-Band are ideally-suited to accommodate front and backhaul applications in densely populated environments that benefit from high frequencies where customers can have maximum bandwidth and high data capacity,” said Emmanuel Saint-Dizier, global product manager, RFS. “Our E-Band antennas provide a very stable link for increased reliability in the field and support precise alignment, which is critical when gains are high and beamwidth is narrow.”

RFS E-Band antennas have been fully tested to comply with ETSI Class 3 and FCC standards and RF specifications have been validated by actual results:

  • SB1-W800Cyyy : ETSI Class 3
  • SB1-W800Cyyy-FCC : FCC
  • SC2-W800BYYY: ETSI Class 3 and FCC

The CompactLine EASY antennas meet RFS’ rigorous quality standards and have been thoroughly tested for resistance to humidity, condensation, salt, vibration and wind.  RFS ensures extreme stability of the link even in wind speeds of 320km/h (SB1) and 250km/h (SC2).
