The AW3376 is an eight-port 3400 – 3800 MHz beamforming panel antenna with electrical variable tilt. The antenna has four arrays with 90° azimuth beamwidth and 0.5 lambda spacing that are optimized for 8T8R beamforming and soft split applications in Bands 42, 43, 48, and 52. The service beam has a 30° azimuth beamwidth that can be steered horizontally up to ±30° with minimal side lobes. The AW3376 features over 16 dB of upper side lobe suppression to eliminate interference between cells. This beamforming antenna focuses power on the user to effectively reduce interference and deliver a significantly improved end user experience. This antenna also supports dual carrier 4×4 MIMO or 8×8 MIMO without beamforming.
The direction of elevation beam can be adjusted using remote electrical tilt (eRET). Remote electrical tilt adjustment can enable elevation tilt adjustment over an IP Network located at the tower or offsite. This allows optimization of the Elevation Beam to improve coverage and throughput. Down tilting the main beam electrically maintains azimuth pattern control and tilt is applied equally around the azimuth plane. This allows full control of the patterns to prevent signal creep into all neighbor cells. The AW3376 provides a versatile MIMO or beamforming solution for sectorized coverage in 4G LTE and 5G private networks using the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) and C-band spectrums.
Panel antennas are the most used solution to provide directive coverage in a wireless network. These panel antennas offer multiple ports and frequency bands and are designed to deliver high gain across the sector. They are commonly available with 33°, 45°, 60°, 90°, and 120° beamwidths. Alpha Wireless provides a wide array of sector panel solutions that meet the needs of the most intricate deployment requirements.
