LONDON and WESTCHESTER, Ill. -- Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and products, has introduced the industry's most compact tower mounted amplifier (TMA) that will provide operators with an ideal option for coverage and capacity enhancement for 3G networks.

The new Andrew OneBase (tm) Compact TMA, at 1.5 liters, is the smallest and lightest tower mounted amplifier in the industry, making it simple to visually integrate at an operator's cell site or within a remote electrical tilt-enabled base station antenna. Compliant with the Antenna Interface Standards Group (AISG) standard that ensures basic interoperability of antennas and control infrastructure, it is antenna line independent and backward compatible with non-AISG UMTS sites.

OneBase Compact TMA will debut at Andrew's exhibit (Hall 1, Stand D08-D09) February 13-16 at 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.

"The OneBase Compact TMA's advanced design features and Andrew's large manufacturing volume help ensure the lowest-cost, highest performing TMA available," said John Baker, vice president, technical marketing, Andrew Base Station Subsystems Group. "It has the unique combination of size, performance, and weight that operators are looking for in addressing challenges with site availability and network enhancements."
