Quintel Releases 8-Foot, 8-Port Quadband Slimline Antennas for North American Operators

Share Article

Quintel releases the latest in its line of MultiServ antennas - new 8-Foot, 8-Port Quadband Antenna that allows operators to combine all four major frequency bands in North America onto one antenna.

Quintel®, a leading innovator of spectrum and space efficient antennas for wireless networks, has introduced its next series of industry leading MultiServ™ 8-Port/Quadband Slimline Antennas.

The Quintel MultiServ Quadband 8-Foot, 8-Port Antennas with patented QTilt™ technology uniquely delivers four or six independent service tilts in a single slim-line 12” wide antenna. This enables existing Cellular (850MHz) and/or PCS (1900MHz) Band antenna-constrained sites to be upgraded to LTE in both 700MHz & AWS bands with the replacement of one like-for-like antenna. Quintel antenna solutions enhance network efficiency, improve quality of service, mitigate tower loading concerns and lower environmental impact – with the lowest cost per transmitted bit. The Quintel MultiServ Quadband 8-Port Antennas are an ideal solution for independently optimizing multiple services when rapidly introducing new services. Technology agnostic, each band provides flexibility for optimizing existing and future technologies such as GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSPA, CDMA/EVDO, LTE/LTE-Advanced including MIMO implementations. The tilt of each band is controlled independently via internal RET actuators compliant to AISG1.1, AISG2.0 and 3GPP protocols. In addition to independent tilt per band the Quintel MultiServ Quadband 8-Port Antenna uniquely offers patented tilt per polarization for the legacy bands. This gives a total of 6 independent tilts 1x(698-787MHz) + 2x(824-894MHz) + 2x(1850-1990MHz) + 1x(1710-1755/2110-2170MHz) enabling additional applications such as hybrid spatial + polarization diversity, sectorization in the vertical plane, high power Passive Intermodulation mitigation and other specialized applications.

For those markets that have PCS and AWS spectrum which, when combined, would generate harmful inter-band 3rd order Passive Intermodulation (PIM3) interference, these antennas allow for the combination of those bands on the same polarized array for up to either 40W of composite power for each band, or 60W AWS and 30W PCS.

“Quintel introduced our 6ft by 1ft 8-Port antennas in 2012, which were immediately adopted and deployed by major Operators at their antenna constrained sites. With the release of our 8 Foot version, Operators can choose the most optimal antenna length to achieve coverage and capacity goals over the major North American frequency bands reducing opex per subscriber,” said Joe Veni, Quintel’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development. “Infrastructure providers likewise can extract the maximum capacity for minimum cost from their existing physical sites now without incurring the cost of tower upgrades and redevelopment nor have to install costly, complex and inefficient combining schemes.”

Quintel Solutions
Unlike conventional multi-port antennas, Quintel’s technology empowers operators to reduce unnecessary infrastructure and thereby allowing them to more quickly and efficiently expand their services and networks. Since 2006, North America, European and Indian deployments, are demonstrating positive and measurable performance and economic results relative to operator coverage through a combination of increased RAD centers, antenna consolidation, and additional cost savings on both initial capital outlays and recurring operating expenses. Thus operators can deploy faster, with lower costs, and fully maintain their desired quality of service with complete reliability and minimal downtime.
