VEGA antennas are directional cellular BTS antennas serving as your ideal solution for improving rural cellular RAN coverage and low QOS issues. Maximize rural cell tower efficiancy with antennas designed for the job.
With VEGA antennas, you can illuminate remote communities and hot spots with a strong narrow focused beam created by the VEGA antenna from an existing cellular tower. You can upgrade service to rural hot spots without adding towers.
You can provide cost efficient rural cellular RAN several remote communities from one existing tower with line of sight to the target community just by adding a sector with a VEGA antenna to that tower.
One common problem operators face is lack of good quality indoor service in areas where the outdoor service is acceptable. In many areas with good outdoor service but with poor indoor service the situation was resolved just by switching to VEGA antennas. VEGA antennas help you to get more income from expensive rural cellular towers.
A difficult to reach cell phone network is a major cause of customer churn!
Operators have actually removed base stations & repeaters from remote communities while providing improved service from a distant tower with a VEGA antenna aimed at the community. VEGA antennas are the easy way to extend rural cellular RAN.
This resulted in considerable savings both of CAPEX and of ongoing OPEX!
"Vega antennas are the easy to implement, cost efficient "solution to poor rural RAN coverage"
A VEGA CC-12 antenna actually saved this South American operator the cost of installing & maintaining a base station in a previously poorly served village.
As seen in the below drive test, the common panel antenna mounted on a distant BTS could not do the job. All that was needed was to remove the panel and install a VEGA CC-12 very high gain narrow beam x-pol antenna and good QOS was provided.

See drive test report of how just switching from a common panel antenna to a VEGA CP-12 antenna solved poor coverage issues on a university campus 9.5 kms distant from the BTS
Comprehensive drive tests from Thailand show how a poor QOS situation in a remote village was resolved just by switching from a common panel antenna to a high gain narrow beam antenna. Careful statistical measuring both before and after the switch show the difference in the performance of the antennas
High quality cellular service was provided to a community in the mountainous Caucus region in Russia just by replacing the poorly performing panel antenna with a very high gain, very narrow beam VEGA CP-12 antenna. Note the dense, often wet forested area between the antenna & the target area
VEGA antennas are the ideal solution in difficult topographical situations as proven by this example in Greece. In this example you can see the difference in QOS provided by a 33° 19.5 dBi panel antenna to that provided by a 5° 28.5 dBiVEGA CP-12 antenna to two villages, one on the sea shore & one above it on the mountain from a BTS located 28 kms. distant.
In an excellent example of the many surprising uses of VEGA antennas, an operator in Greece covered two villages in a mountainous costal area from a distant site 13 kms over water with a VEGA CP12 antenna. Note that the antenna carries both 1800 GSM & 2100 UMTS frequencies!
As seen in the drive tests, even use of a specially made 40° 20 dBi 240 centimeter long panel antenna did not improve QOS in remote communities in Colombia. RAN optimizers installed in its place an 11° 23dBi VEGA CC-12 antenna that insured good service to these communities.
As an alternative to the expense of installing & maintaining another BTS that was planned in order to improve QOS and resolve weak signal issues on a section of road 18 kilometers from the existing BTS, RAN optimizers in the Ukraine removed a 33° 22 dBi panel antenna and installed in its place a 5° 28 dBi VEGA CP-12 antenna.
