BOSTON -- Stella Doradus Group, a world leader in WiMAX antenna design and manufacturing, today introduced the first solid state remote electrical tilt antenna for WiMAX base stations during the WiMAX World Conference & Expo (Booth #708). The Stella Netamorphic Antenna electronically performs tilting operations from a centrally controlled network operations center, which reduces tilting operation costs to $0, potentially saving top-tier operators hundreds of millions of dollars during their WiMAX network build-out.

"For WiMAX to become a reality, operators need a cost-effective infrastructure build plan," said James Brown, CEO of Stella Doradus. "A typical urban city will need about one thousand base stations to adequately cover the area. By eliminating the need for tower climbs, the Stella Netamorphic Antenna can save operators approximately $5 million for every 500 base stations they add to their network, which quickly adds up to hundreds of millions in savings if the operator is planning a nationwide presence."

The Stella Netamorphic Antenna is also the first in the world to produce equal radio frequency (RF) power across the entire cell. This gives consumers equal signal strength no matter how far they are from the cell base station. The Netamorphic antenna also reduces cell to cell interference, even in highly concentrated areas, by 800%. Together these technical breakthroughs give better signal strength and less interference enabling the data rate quality required for mass adoption of mobile television , streaming video and other new products coming online.

"To achieve the full benefit from WiMAX networks, operators will need to deliver high data rate services such as mobile TV and streaming video," added Brown. "These services require extremely consistent data transmission quality. Our new antenna has been proven to cut out more interference in high concentration areas than any competing antenna on the market, which enables the quality of mobile TV and streaming video that consumers expect."
