Quintel Shipping Fully Commercial 12-Port Multiband MultiServ™ Antennas that allows operators to deploy five major frequency bands in North and South America on one Slimline antenna

Quintel®, a leading innovator of spectrum and space-efficient base station antennas for wireless networks, has announced it began shipping to customers the newest addition to its industry-leading MultiServ™ Slimline Antenna portfolio - the Quintel 12-Port Multiband Slimline Antenna.

The Quintel 12-Port MultiServ™ Slimline antenna utilizes the same 12”/300mm wide form factor “Ultra Broadband (UBB) Platform” that all Quintel antennas use providing the industry’s only “One Size Fits All” portfolio of 6, 8, 10 and 12-Port antennas in the same single form factor. Even the mounting brackets are the same!

Quintel’s UBB Platform was developed by the team under the lead of Quintel’s Director of Engineering, Research and Development, Dr Peter Song. The UBB antenna portfolio utilizes several patented and patent pending technologies including QTilt™ technology, UBB antenna array technology with highly optimized azimuth patterns developed by Dr. Peter Song. Together with the mechanical design team of Allen Yang and Byron Proshold, they developed a radome design providing the world’s lowest windloading factor.

Quintel’s 12-Port Multiband Slimline Antenna provides:

(i)    Up to 6 independent tilts providing maximum optimization flexibility per band and service
(ii)    Industry best Low-Band patterns with the highest Inter-Sector C/I Ratio and data throughputs.
(iii)    Lowest windloading with up to 30% less windload than other multi-port antennas
(iv)    -153dBc PIM same-band, and -159dBc cross-band PIM isolation
(v)    Industry leading reliability with lowest in class field failure rate
(vi)    Leverages the latest high PIM performance 4.3.10 RF connectors
(vii)    100% internal RET, available with AISG via RF to eliminate AISG jumper from Radio to Antenna
(viii)    High-Band arrays which exploit the full antenna length providing optimum Gain and Vertical BW

Quintel UBB Platform Antennas have Azimuth patterns that have been optimized with network design and deployment in mind. The 3dB Azimuth beamwidth is ~65o as with most Base Station Antennas, but Quintel optimizes how the pattern rolls-off and where the sidelobes emerge such that there is minimal Inter-Sector Interference when 3x sectors are deployed. This means in today’s interference limited networks, where LTE traffic is high, Quintel antennas have been shown to deliver 25%+ higher capacity.

Quintel’s industry leading -159dBc high-band inter-band Passive Intermodulation (PIM) specification also guarantees Operators can mix and match high-band services without concern for inter-band PIM generated by the antenna. To assist Operators with analyzing and engineering site designs for PIM, Quintel has developed for release to customers and partners an easy to use, complex analysis PIM Calculator and planner. This provides comprehensive simulation and analysis of potential PIM products caused by band combinations which considers not only whether a PIM product exists at a frequency, but more importantly its relative power and hence Margin to Specifications.

“Quintel has led the market with high capacity, antennas, highly optimized for LTE performance, in the slimmest form factors, and with the least amount of windloading, since it introduced its first generation of MultiServ™ Multiport antennas in 2010, said Joe Veni, Quintel’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development. “Operators can also extract the maximum capacity for minimum cost from their existing physical sites without incurring the cost of tower upgrades and redevelopment nor having to install costly, complex and inefficient combining schemes.”
