Circular-Pol Hex-Port 8 ft 60° Fast Roll Off antenna:

2 ports 698-894 MHz and 4 ports 1695-2180 MHz

  • Fast Roll Off (FRO™) azimuth beam pattern improves Intra- and Inter-cell SINR

  • Excellent passive intermodulation (PIM) performance reduces harmful interference.
  • Fully integrated (iRETs) with independent RET control for low and high bands for ease of network optimization

  • SON-Ready array spacing supports beamforming capabilities

  • Suitable for LTE/CDMA/PCS/UMTS/GSM air interface technologies

  • Integrated Smart Bias-Ts reduce leasing costs

  • Circular polarization with optimized fading performance and throughput

Fast Roll-Off antennas increase data throughput without compromising coverage
The horizontal beam produced by Fast Roll-Off (FRO) technology increases the Signal to Interference & Noise Ratio (SINR) by eliminating overlap between sectors .
Non-FRO antenna Large traditional antenna pattern overlap creates harmful interference. JMA FRO antenna
JMA’s FRO antenna pattern minimizes overlap, thereby minimizing interference.
LTE throughput SINR Speed (bps/Hz) Speed increase CQI
Excellent >18 >4.5 333+% 8-10
Good 15-18 3.3-4.5 277% 6-7
Fair 10-15 2-3.3 160% 4-6
Poor <10 <2 0% 1-3
The LTE radio automatically selects the best throughput based on measured SINR.
