A single antenna with three uncorrelated high gain beams
The new VEGA model CP32WB is a triple beam cellular RAN antenna offering a very high gain, triple narrow-beam solution covering the whole 1710-2690 MHz band.
Each beam is 5.2° to 4.5° wide in both Azimuth and Elevation at -3dB.
Two beams are shifted +/- 7.5° from the center beam directed at boresight with total width coverage of 22°
With a gain of +27.5 dBi at 1710 MHz going up to +29 dBi at 2690 MHz, this new 2m diameter dish antenna is, by combining three antennas in one, a tower-space friendly addition to the VEGA line of truly different RAN BTS antennas.
The CP32WB’s triple-beam pattern and very high gain greatly increase spectral efficiency and both capacity & coverage while insuring better QOS and less customer churn in those extremely difficult coverage situations.
Each of the three beams is ±45° dual slant polarized. This enables three times 2×2 MIMO operation with six uncorrelated ports.
In those specific cases where VEGA’s triple beam CPW32WB antenna covers a high multipath area like dense, reflection-rich urban environment, one may consider 6×6 MIMO operation thus increasing both capacity and data speed while improving quality of service.
The VEGA CP32WB is the best available tool enabling RAN engineers to cover a sector of 22 deg with up to +29dBi gain and 3 independent carriers. It can easily, for example, bring excellent QOS to a neighborhood where residents do not want to see any towers in or close by their homes. The VEGA CP32WB can be installed on a tower which is 5, 10 or even 15 km distant and yet still provide the high-level signal coverage and high capacity in all three carrier beams.
