Ubidyne features world’s first active antenna solution for 700 MHz 4G at Mobile Word Congress

January 24th 2012 – Ubidyne will be featuring its new LTE 700MHz active antenna solution at next month’s Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona.

The uB700™ Antenna Embedded Radio with flexible beam forming and tilting capabilities has just completed independent network trials with a leading US mobile operator, delivering double throughput at the cell edge and an increase of over 40% cell capacity with the same output power. The results show that before investing in costly small cells, operators can use active antenna technology to address the exploding demand for wireless data by maximising coverage and capacity from their existing macrocells.

In addition to the new uB700 that supports 4G (LTE) in the 700Mhz digital dividend band for broadband mobile networks in the US, Ubidyne’s uB900™ Antenna Embedded Radio supports GSM, UMTS and LTE in the 900Mhz frequency band to address mobile networks in Europe, Africa, Oceania, Asia and the Middle East. Future products are also in development for the European digital dividend bands of 800MHz and highband up to 2.6GHz as well as multi-band solutions.

By removing the need for bulky coaxial feeder cables, remote electrical tilt assemblies and additional amplifiers on antenna towers and masts, Ubidyne’s patented active antenna technology significantly reduces installation costs and energy consumption while improving radio performance, deployment flexibility, coverage and network capacity. OPEX costs and outages are further reduced by Ubidyne’s Self-Healing mechanism that secures antenna coverage in the unlikely event of a system failure. 

“The US trials show that active antennas can significantly increase cell capacity using vertical sectorisation and double the uplink throughput at the cell edge as well as increase the coverage area with independent uplink and downlink tilting,” said Michael Fränkle, CEO of Ubidyne. “Active antenna technology offers end users a continuous service, while operators will save both CAPEX and OPEX costs; we have the potential to dramatically change the radio architecture and operations of mobile communications without migrating to small cells at tremendous cost. Active antennas have arrived and we are seeing increasing interest and demand from operators around the world.”
