The Future of Microwave Backhaul is Smaller

Digital Dehydrator Simplifies Configuration, Enables Flexibility in the Field

Long-haul microwave links typically use large antennas – anywhere from 6 feet to 12 feet in diameter – which creates some significant issues in link design and installation. The larger the antenna, the greater the wind load on the tower and also the narrower the antenna beam width for a given frequency. This potentially means that towers need to be strengthened and stiffened to allow the antenna to remain aligned or there may be restrictions on where the antenna can be mounted.

New developments in antenna design and technology are leading to increased gain and smaller diameter sizes. Where the ability to install links may be determined by interference rather than simple gain, improved radiation pattern envelopes such as those compliant with ETSI Class 4 can allow smaller antennas to be deployed. Costs can be lower because of basic product costs and from savings in potential tower modifications

One extra positive in using a smaller antenna is happier installation teams. The larger the antenna the more skill, care and attention is needed to getting it hoisted up the tower, fitted onto its mounting structure and aligned. The smaller the antenna the easier it is to install. With less time required for assembly, the rigging operation gets done quicker.

Low PIM Adapters

Low PIM 4.3-10 Adapters

The most effective new design element in the network, DAS and cellular infrastructures is the 4.3-10 connector interface. This new system was designed specifically for mobile communications applications delivers optimal performance and improved network capacity while increasing RF density. More spectrums can be supported without increasing infrastructure footprint. The weight is 60% lower, using 40% less space than 7-16 DIN connectors in the same applications. PIM performance is superior to that of 7-16 DIN and 4.1-9.5 interfaces. Even better, return loss and PIM performance is independent of torque applied and cable can be flexed with little detrimental effect. The 4.3-10 connector system is IP68 rated and will support up to 500 Watts at 2 GHz and meets IEC standard 61169-54.

In base stations, the 4.3-10 is increasingly the interface of choice in remote radio heads, jumpers and antennas. Where RF signals must be terminated, combined or split in multiband, multi-operator DAS applications 4.3-10 meets exacting electrical and RF performance.

RF Connectors stocks 4.3-10 connectors, adapters and adapter kits.
