While “MIMO” has been a buzz word in the mobile communications industry for some time, it is only now gaining real traction and will be a key enabler as networks migrate from 4G to 5G. Base Station Antennas are a critical component in MIMO architectures, and there is a science to proper spacing in order […]
On Monday, August 21, the United States will experience the first total solar eclipse to cross the country since 1918. This once-in-a-century event will create a virtual rolling blackout of cell services as it travels along it’s path, not due to the heavenly bodies but because of the live streaming, photo-taking and subsequent ‘sharing’ done […]
At the June 29th IEEE luncheon in Plano, TX, Jeyanandh Paramesh, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University gave a technical presentation titled, “Advanced Multi-Antenna Transceivers for 5G Communications and Beyond.” Professor Paramesh and his team of researchers believe that directional communications using antenna arrays will be a centerpiece of next-generation […]
The Gettysburg Address, The Space Needle, Harry Potter, Southwest Airlines, great Beatles’ songs, Kathrein Canister Antennas – What do these all have in common? Well, the title gives it away- they all had their start with brilliant people brainstorming and sketching on cocktail napkins! Kathrein just released the latest in a long line of canister […]
Wireless tower structures are going through a bit of an overhaul as mobile operators move to densify their networks and keep up with […]
Thank you… for the Awards and that the 2016 Wireless Tradeshow Circuit is Over! After many miles traveled, as well as countless handshakes and customer meetings, we are done with the tradeshow circuit (circus) for 2016! We hit it hard in 2015/2016 with the need to educate and establish Kathrein’s long history of RF expertise as relevant […]
Subpar Antenna Quality Weakens Network Performance Mobile operators have spent billions of dollars both building and making improvements to their ever expanding wireless networks. While each component plays a significant role in the efficiency of the network, the performance of the antennas deployed within the network can serve as a key factor of network capacity. […]
