KP Performance Antennas has released a new CBRS antenna line ideal for WISP and enterprise applications and includes four models: a four-port Omni, a four-port 90-degree sector antenna, a two-port 15-degree flat panel, and a two-port 60-degree flat panel.

The new Omni CBRS antenna features four ports, +/-45 slant polarisation and covers the 3500-3800MHz, frequency bands. It comprises two dual-polarised Omni arrays in a single radome enclosure with a single mounting point. The small, 27" antenna limits the tower footprint and provides 360-degree coverage with 8.5dBi of gain. This antenna supports one 4x4 MIMO or two 2x2 MIMO radios in CBRS band 3.5-3.8GHz.

The CBRS sector antenna in this line boasts four ports, 17.7dBi of gain and slant, dual-polarisation. It covers the 3300-3800MHz bands with 90-degree HPBW and zero-degree fixed electrical downtilt. This antenna is excellent for four-sector frequency reuse with 4x4 MIMO LTE equipment and CBRS deployments. It also offers low-PIM, N-type female connectors.

This new product line also includes a 15-degree flat-panel CBRS antenna that includes the 3500-3800MHz, frequency band. This antenna boasts stable 20dBi gain in a small, 12" x 12" x 1" factor for CBRS band. This industrial design comprises a UV-resistant radome and powder-coated mounting hardware. It also features two ports and +/-45slant polarisation. The 60-degree flat panel in this line includes all of these same features, except 10dBi of gain instead of 20dBi.

“This new product line consists of high performance, affordable CBRS antennas that outperform our competitors in terms of gain, front-to-back, and pattern stability. These antennas are rugged with a long service life and an appealing aesthetic, all backed by KP’s reputation for high-quality antennas,” said Justin Pollock, Infrastructure Antenna product line manager.
