Network Coverage At Its Best: Tower-Mounted Amplifiers

Network Coverage At Its Best: Tower-Mounted Amplifiers

By Kaelus

Cellular network operators are continuously trying to find cost-effective ways to improve network performance. The introduction of remote radio head (RRH) modules provides a less expensive solution by placing all the active RF components at the top of the base station tower. However, since this solution can’t be used in every situation, there is a need for tower-mounted amplifiers that can provide increased capacity and better coverage. Appropriately installed tower-mounted low noise amplifiers in the BS uplink will significantly improve receiver system sensitivity when installed as close as possible to the receive antenna. Download the full white paper for more on BS cell coverage fundamentals, site installation influence on BS sensitivity, and how to choose the right tower-mounted amplifier in order to get the most benefits for each application.
