RADWIN has introduced an innovative MultiSector™ PtMP dual-carrier base station series that enables service providers and network operators to increase network capacity and coverage, reduce site complexity and TCO.
Service providers planning greenfield deployments in low populated areas are challenged by the need for high-quality Omni-directional coverage for a limited number of potential customers while requiring inexpensive wireless infrastructure to adhere to the business model.
To this end, the MultiSector series delivers 1.5 Gbps throughput and supports up to 4 sectors per base station with integrated or external antennas to achieve 360° coverage.
MultiSector reduces the amount of glue components and cable wiring per site to a minimum. The self-contained base station incorporates dual radios, a built-in GPS antenna, and Layer-2 Switch. MultiSector also enables self-backhaul, eliminating the need for an additional PtP radio.
Two base station versions are offered. MultiSector Integrated is a base station that includes 180˚ (dual 90˚) sector MIMO antennas and connectors to attach an additional 180˚ RADWIN antenna unit, or other 3rd party antennas to cover a full 360˚. Each of the radio carrier resources are split between 2 antennas in the time domain, avoiding signal power loss when using an RF splitter.
This system was designed for MicroPoP coverage supporting short-range connectivity of up to 2 to 3 km including small or isolated rural villages, industrial parks on the outskirts of town, video surveillance, and remote automation for digital oil and gas fields.
