KP Performance Antennas has developed a new series of dual sector antennas designed to reduce tower rental and installation costs by housing two or more antennas in a single radome. KP’s new line comprises seven models, each consisting of two or more sector antennas inside a single, rugged radome. The antennas are offered with four or eight ports and support 2 x 2, 4 x 4 and 8 x 8 MIMO, depending on the model. The single mounting point reduces inches on the tower, lowers wind resistance and halves tower rental. The antennas also provide a rapid upgrade path to add frequency bands without installing more infrastructure.
The straight-on models in this line provide two forward-facing, high gain, 65 or 90 degree sector antennas in a single radome, one for each frequency band, and come in frequency combinations of 2 and 3 GHz, 2 and 5 GHz, 3 and 5 GHz and 5 and 5 GHz. They feature clean patterns and provide complete 360 degree coverage while minimizing interference. They also have mounting space for two ePMP radios, have four Type N female connectors and hot-dip galvanized steel sector brackets. These antennas are ideal for point-to-multipoint applications and support many of the popular radios in the WISP/WLAN market.
The side-angle models combine two 65 degree sector antennas in a single radome and mounted 60 degrees apart, with two ports angled at −60 degrees and the other two at +60 degrees, for a total of 120 degree coverage using two, 2 x 2 MIMO radios on a single antenna. These antennas achieve complete 360 degree coverage while minimizing interference, with only three side-angle sectors connected to six, 2 x 2 MIMO radios around a tower and ABCABC frequency reuse.
