KP line of rugged, affordable CBRS antennas
KP Performance Antennas has just released a new CBRS antenna line suited for WISP and enterprise applications and including four models: a four-port Omni, a four-port 90-degree sector antenna, a two-port 15 o flat panel, and a two-port 60o flat panel.
KP’s new Omni CBRS antenna features 4 ports, +/- 45 slant polarisation and covers the 3,500 to 3,800MHz frequency bands. It is comprised of two dual-polarised Omni arrays in a single radome enclosure with one mounting point. The small, 27-inch Omni limits the tower footprint and provides 360-degree coverage with 8.5 dBi of gain. This CBRS Omni antenna supports one 4x4 MIMO or two 2x2 MIMO radios in CBRS band 3.5 to 3.8GHz.
The CBRS sector antenna in this line boasts four-ports, 17.7 dBi of gain and slant, dual-polarisation. It covers the 3300-3800 MHz bands with 90-degree HPBW and zero-degree fixed electrical downtilt. This antenna is ideal for four-sector frequency reuse with 4x4 MIMO LTE equipment and CBRS deployments. It also features low-PIM, N-type female connectors.
This new product line also includes a 15o flat panel CBRS antenna that covers the 3500-3800 MHz frequency band. This antenna boasts stable 20 dBi gain in a small, 12x12x1” factor for CBRS band. This industrial design includes a UV-resistant radome and powder-coated mounting hardware. It also features two ports and +/-45 slant polarisation. The 60o flat panel in this line includes all of these same features, except 10 dBi of gain instead of 20 dBi.
“This new product line consists of high performance, affordable CBRS antennas that outperform our competitors in terms of gain, front-to-back, and pattern stability. These antennas are rugged with a long service life and an appealing aesthetic, all backed by KP’s reputation for high quality antennas,” said Justin Pollock, Infrastructure Antenna Product Line Manager.
