Unserved and underserved rural areas, often labeled as “black spots,” continue to grapple with unstable service and dropped calls as we embark on 2023. Simultaneously, the coverage range of high data rate services is shrinking with the rise of newer generation data rates, posing challenges for the cellular landscape.
The Persistent Challenge at the Cell Edge
Despite the strides made in 4G/5G capacity, data rates, and coverage, Quality of Service (QOS) issues at the cell edge remain a significant concern for RAN planners and optimizers. The struggle is amplified in distant, difficult, or economically unattractive low Erlang targets. The formidable hurdle lies in the balance between the capital expenditure (CAPEX) and ongoing operating expenses (OPEX) required to tackle these issues against the projected income.
Overcoming Obstacles: 5G VEGA High Gain Antennas
An often-overlooked yet effective solution involves the use of very high gain, narrow beam antennas strategically added to existing towers. This solution proves invaluable both as an optimization tool and in the “green field” planning stage. While common solutions like more towers, small cells, or repeaters demand additional time and resources, VEGA antennas offer a cost-effective alternative.
VEGA’s Impact Since 2004
Since 2004, thousands of coverage challenges in over 65 countries have been efficiently resolved by transitioning from common panel antennas to VEGA’s very high gain, narrow beam antennas. Another successful approach involves adding sectors to existing towers equipped with VEGA antennas. These solutions have proven to be quick, easy, and cost-effective.
