Powerwave Boosts Outdoors
LAS VEGAS -- Powerwave Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:PWAV), a global source for end-to-end wireless infrastructure solutions, announced the expansion of its family of outdoor coverage and capacity systems, with the introduction of its three-sector, high-power booster system here today at CTIA Wireless 2008, the industry’s premier wireless conference and exhibition.
The new three-sector high power booster features an environmentally-friendly, energy efficient design, offering more compact footprint as opposed to competitive solutions by enabling operators to house equipment for three wireless sectors within a single micro-cabinet. Further space optimization is achieved through a reduction in the number of antennas, base stations (BTS) and feed lines required to provide 2G and 3G outdoor wireless coverage and capacity for dense urban cell cites and rural areas. The product is also designed to accommodate up to three MCPA modules, providing operators with the flexibility to support current and future coverage and capacity requirements.
When combined with Powerwave’s Clean Site™ Intellimast Antenna Platform, which maximizes tower space by integrating single- and multi-band antennas with high-performance tower-mounted amplifiers (TMAs) and remote electrical tilt (RET) under a single radome, the three-sector high-power booster offers network operators a “green” infrastructure solution.
Leveraging Powerwave’s best-in-class multi-carrier power amplifier (MCPA) technology, which offers industry-leading density, high efficiency and compatibility with multiple frequency bands, the three-sector high power booster can also help reduce in-network capital and operating expenditures, while increasing site efficiency.
“Powerwave is committed to providing our customers with next generation infrastructure solutions that provide the perfect balance between cost and performance,” said Ronald J. Buschur, President and Chief Executive Officer, Powerwave Technologies. “With an environmentally-friendly, energy efficient design that can be customized based on customer requirements, and is compatible with existing infrastructure build-outs, our three-sector, high power booster solution promotes the most efficient use of critical network infrastructure resources.”
