HICKORY, N.C. -- Cellular providers have more options for handling the growing problem of network overload thanks to a ground-breaking microwave antenna solution from CommScope. Now, next-generation backhaul performance and savings in operating and capital expenses are within easy reach.

CommScope’s Sentinel™, one of the most significant innovations in Andrew Solutions™ microwave antenna technology, is designed to address three of the greatest challenges facing wireless network operators – rapidly increasing data traffic, spectrum scarcity and return on network investment. Sentinel is believed to be the first full line of European Telecommunications Standards Institute Class 4 antennas priced for today and designed for the future. And, CommScope believes Sentinel is the only offering of its kind that delivers these advantages without compromise.

Sentinel is engineered for performance to maximize the use of wireless spectrum, while withstanding heavy demands in data growth. As with all CommScope capacity solutions, customers benefit from added peace of mind knowing the technology powering their solution won’t become obsolete before or soon after deployment. An innovative improvement in radiation pattern helps squeeze more out of available spectrum and typically yields 40 percent higher link density. The result is more capacity moving traffic between cell sites and the core network, helping lessen strain on the network and prevent impacts to performance. Higher radio modulation schemes can be used and Sentinel can also minimize interference in the network.
