TO TARGET both fixed and mobile WiMAX applications, a new antenna is promising to provide a very predictable pattern and consistent performance. The antenna specifically targets maximal-ratio-combining (MRC), multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO), and other wireless wide-areanetwork applications. The 2.5-GHz, dual-slant 45-deg., 90-deg. WiMAX base-station antenna is fully compliant with ETSI EN 301.525 CS pattern specifications. It operates across the 2.3-to-2.7-GHz frequency band. To help to eliminate dead spots below the antenna, it offers a maximum-nullfill (-25-deg.) feature. High gain of 16 dBi vows to extend area coverage.
