Deploying wireless network sites with higher order sectorization can be an extremely effective way of increasing site and network capacity. Potential advantages of 6-sector solutions include:

  • Capacity gains of up to 70%
  • Improves DL capacity by increasing number of available carriers
  • Improves UL capacity by splitting load
  • Reduces cell count and increases link budget in urban areas

However, there have also been challenges with multi-sector sites, including:

  • A requirement for narrow beam antennas to ensure good interference rejection and fewer softer handover losses
  • A need for extensive optimization and changes to the existing network

TenXc's Bi-Sector Arrays surmount these challenges and provide the full capacity benefits of increased sectorization.  Our Dual Asymmetrical Beam antennas  and sophisticated  array designs deliver capacity gains of up to 3x, using existing site infrastructure.

  • Boosts cell capacity within existing spectrum by up to 3x
  • Fully compatible with existing GSM, CDMA and UMTS BTS equipment
  • Quick and simple installation
  • Cost-effective alternative to Multiple Carrier Adds
  • Supports gradual 4, 5 or 6 sector conversions
  • Reduces “other cell” interference and dropped calls
