The AW3842 is an eight-port dual band panel antenna that provides four ports for 2300 – 2700 MHz and four ports for 3400 – 3800 MHz. This 65° sector panel antenna cleverly packages the 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz antenna arrays in one compact radome, reducing antenna count on the tower without sacrificing RF performance. The AW3842 eliminates interference in 4G and 5G networks with over 18 dB of upper side lobe suppression. The antenna is designed to have equally high performance in both bands and delivers a high 17.5 dBi gain across all ports.
The AW3842 comes with enclosed remote electrical tilt (eRET). Electrical tilt adjustment enables network optimisation without the need to adjust the mounting brackets. Throughput and coverage can be optimized through accurate adjustments of the downtilt to put the signal where it is needed. Remote electrical tilt adjustment can enable elevation tilt adjustment over an IP Network located at the tower or offsite.
The AW3842 provides sectorized coverage for 4G and 5G private networks using the 2.5GHz S-band, Broadband Radio Service (BRS), and Education Broadband Service (EBS) spectrums and 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) and C-band spectrum. This antenna supports LTE Bands 41, 42, 43, and 48 and 5G NR bands n7, n41, n77, and n78.
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.
