Tappers vs Couplers for Ultra-Wideband Signal Distribution Networks

With 5G ready networks on the horizon and the need for higher data rates the requirement for greater bandwidth can no longer be avoided. Carrier aggregation enables higher capacity and can be further enhanced by License Assisted Access (LAA). LTE-LAA enables the use of an unlicensed spectrum (2.4GHz, 3.5GHz, and 5.9GHz) for Supplemental Down-link in tandem with a Primary Cell operating in the licensed spectrum’s sector as an anchor. To accommodate carrier aggregation with LTE-LAA, ultra-wide band components that operate up to 6GHz are required. Signal Tappers are a cost effective and space efficient alternative to directional couplers.
