Communication Components Inc. (CCI) drives forward adding next gen 4 x 4 MIMO Antennas to its Multi-Beam portfolio.

Creating faster and increased data throughput, international solutions provider CCI’s Multi-Beam Antennas with 4 x 4 MIMO support enables mobile speeds in excess of 1 Gbits/s to be achieved on current LTE networks and future proofs for 5G networks.

Building on the global success of their trail-blazing Multi-Beam antennas, the new breed provides full 4 x 4 MIMO functionality in operator networks to match the latest devices, achieving speeds and thrusting capacity up to levels which can even surpass massive MIMO throughput and capacity in stadium, arena, and pedestrian deployment scenarios. 

From mass transit and population sites like the US Indy500, or airports and rail stations such as London’s Paddington Station to country-wide capacity projects, the CCI Multi-Beam Antennas are an essential part of delivering quality high capacity technology as data demand increases.

Recently used in emergency responses such as the UK’s NHS Covid-19 Nightingale Hospital, early adopters include Norwegian operators who installed 4 x 4 MIMO 6 Beam Antennas permanently at Holmenkollen in Oslo to maintain year-round connectivity for the thousands of large crowds who visit the Ski Jump and Museum. 

CCI Multi-Beam Antennas have been optimized for OFDMA LTE/5G networks, support options for full LTE spectrum support, and will extend to the high frequency 5G bands in the future. 

Peter Jackson, director of sales-Europe said, “CCI is unique; able to move quickly amid the Covid-19 crisis to support Operators and clients around the world with our leading extended Multi-Beam portfolio in response to the adoption of 4 x 4 technology in the macro network. CCI are enabling high density capacity requirements migrate into day to day capacity, adding to or within existing technology and base stations amid the emerging 5G networks and growing demands for streaming.”

Having introduced the world’s-first 6-beam 4x4 MIMO Antenna earlier in the year, the latest innovation now extends 4x4 capability to 3-beam and 9-beam solutions. CCI’s Multi-Beam Antenna portfolio is one of the largest on the market, containing three, six, or nine independent LTE optimized beams with 4 x 4 MIMO capability or conversely double the amount of independent LTE optimized beams with 2 x 2 MIMO capability, or any other combination of 4 x 4 MIMO/2 x 2 MIMO systems required, providing unapparelled frequency and MIMO configuration capability.
