Powerwave Technologies to Showcase Cutting-Edge New 4G Network Infrastructure at CTIA Wireless 2011
Powerwave Technologies Showcases Cutting-Edge 4G Inside Out Solutions™ at CTIA Wireless 2011
New Powerwave LTE Picocell and 4G MIMO Active Array Antenna products are finalists for CTIA E-Tech Awards
Powerwave Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:PWAV – News) will showcase its cutting-edge new 4G network infrastructure products at International CTIA Wireless 2011 next week. The show runs from March 22-24 in Orlando, FL, at the Orange County Convention Center.
Powerwave’s lineup of new products is lead by the Powerwave Picocell and Active Array Antenna, both of which are finalists for a CTIA E-Tech Award. In addition, Powerwave will be showing its new iCC Internet Commanded Combiner and a complete line of RF broadband site solutions for fast and economic deployment of 4G networks that includes signal combiners, signal amplifiers and broadband antennas.
“The technology story of the year is 4G networks, and the competition is intense for carriers to roll out services to customers as quickly as possible,” said Ronald J. Buschur, president and CEO at Powerwave. “The fastest and most economical way to do this is by upgrading existing cell sites with equipment that can support both legacy 2G/3G while transitioning to 4G. Powerwave is taking a leadership role in delivering the products carriers need right now and into the future.”
The iCC Internet Commanded Combiner facilitates feed line and antenna sharing from two or more 2G, 3G or 4G radio heads or base transceiver systems (BTS). Because it can be tuned remotely, it is a major advancement from conventional filter combiners that have extremely restricted flexibility in adapting filter response because they are either fixed-tuned or manually tuned. The iCC enables the immediate rollout of profitable LTE services at a fraction of the time and cost of building out new or separate BTS infrastructure for LTE services.
Powerwave’s tower mounted amplifiers boost capacity and coverage for 2G/3G and LTE deployments. They combine field-proven reliability with state-of-the-art small size that minimizes tower load and visual impact. With the improved coverage from these TMAs, carriers can cut the number of sites needed for nationwide coverage.
Powerwave, an industry veteran in antenna design innovation with over a million antennas deployed worldwide, will be displaying the company’s new dual and triple broadband antenna products that combine 2G/3G and 4G frequency bands on a single antenna with integrated remote electrical tilt functionality for superior performance, efficiency and flexibility. The company is also showcasing broadband site solutions including dual-band AWS/PCS LTE SIMO overlay combiners, LTE MIMO reconfigurable frequency and bandwidth combiners, an LTE700 crossband combiner, diplexer and triplexer, WiMAX/LTE 2600 crossband combiners, a universal crossband combiner and a micro twin 2600 LTE tower mounted amplifier.
Visit Powerwave at International CTIA Wireless 2011 from March 22-24 in Orlando, Florida at Booth #2459 for complete information and demos of the company’s latest 4G infrastructure offerings.
