CommScope Upgrades its Microwave Antenna Portfolio for Next Generation Wireless Backhaul

CommScope is overhauling its entire long-haul antenna portfolio to significantly improve the coverage, capacity and cost-effectiveness of wireless backhaul for all applications.

They are introducing two new long-haul antenna product lines - USX and HX - into their Sentinel and ValuLine portfolios, which will ultimately replace their existing long-haul antennas. The new antennas provide next generation performance for cellular, broadcast, telecom and private networks.

As part of CommScope’s Sentinel range, the new USX antennas meet or exceed Class 4 standards as defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). Their superior radiation patterns provide maximum protection against interference, helping backhaul links operate at high data rates for longer. USX antennas retain the high performing cross-polarization technology of CommScope’s existing HSX backhaul antennas.

CommScope claims that their USX antenna products are unmatched in performance by any competitive antenna.

The new ValuLine HX antennas deliver substantially improved radiation pattern envelopes and cross-polarization compared to other Class 3 antennas. These performance improvements enable network operators to balance performance and deployment cost where high network congestion is not an issue and without the additional cost of upgrading to a full USX antenna.

CommScope’s Sentinel microwave antennas revolutionized the performance capabilities of wireless backhaul networks. Sentinel won the 2017 Network Transformation Award for best new product from Layer123 and a 2018 Tessco One Innovation Award. CommScope has supplied microwave antennas for more than 50 years. The company also offers a comprehensive portfolio of connectivity solutions for backhaul fiber networks. For more information, click here.
