What makes communication so challenging in an airport is its large coverage area and high-capacity requirements. That’s the challenge YYC Calgary International Airport faced when it built its new international terminal. The airport had virtually no commercial or public safety coverage from the macro and, as a result, the new international terminal faced both coverage and capacity issues.
A printed reflectarray is a high-gain, low profile, low-cost antenna that combines the advantages of parabolic reflector antennas with microstrip arrays. This white paper demonstrates how to easily create a printed reflectarray and its simpler feeds through the use of FEKO simulation software.
Installation of remote radio systems presents many challenges for mobile radio operators, installers, and system integrators. Challenges include considerations for how the higher power requirements affect the inductance of newly integrated hybrid cycles, and how inductive voltage drops can be reduced.
When designing a network backhaul, the finest technology is considered for the active components, while the importance of passive components is often taken for granted. The antenna has been regularly seen as a cost-saving component where concessions can be made on quality.
