Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), designer and manufacturer of broadcast and wireless infrastructure components, last week announced it’s delivering TowerBooster microwave antennas. The dishes support the commonly used 6 GHz and 11 GHz bands in a single reflector. The company said the dual-band, dual-polarized antennas double or quadruple capacity on microwave links compared to single-band microwave antennas. With the additional capacity, microwave users can backhaul large volumes of traffic with a single, high-performance microwave antenna. 

“With 5G network rollouts ramping up all over the world, microwave users need a reliable, high-performance and cost-effective solution to increase capacity on long-haul microwave links,” says Benjamin Gao, RFS Regional Product Manager, Microwave Antenna Systems. “Our 6 and 11 GHz PrimeLine TowerBooster microwave antennas give microwave users the capacity and performance they need to reliably backhaul 5G data over long distances with low total cost of ownership.” 

PrimeLine TowerBooster 6 and 11 GHz dual-band antennas:

  • Provide ETSI Class 3 ultra-high performance
  • Meet FCC Part 101 Cat A standards in the 6 and 11 GHz bands
  • Feature high cross-polarization discrimination between the two bands to support high-capacity cross-polarization interference cancellation and Co-Channel Dual Polarization applications
  • Maximize the effects of link diversity in a single antenna to mitigate multipath fading on long-distance links and to increase link quality and availability
  • Incorporate RFS structural design features to achieve outstanding mechanical reliability
  • Are available in standard and high wind, high ice configurations for reliable operation in severe environment and climate conditions
