Major operators in India have completed technical trials with Quintel’s Multiserv Quadband Antenna in order to maximize network efficiency, coverage and capacity -- while maintaining the operating expenses per subscriber. Click to download
Quintel enables operators to deliver multiple services on a single antenna with solutions that are rapidly deployed, scalable, and independently tilt controlled for maximum QoS and minimum cost. Request info
Scaling India's Tower Infrastructure
Deployments of Quintel’s network-efficient antenna sharing applications are continuing in India with major tower companies and operators. These unique applications provide independent tilt control to optimize both coverage and QoS with the following applications:
Operator Sharing: Multiple operators consolidate infrastructure and share a single triple array stack, the Quintel MultiServ 10 Port antenna, to provision up to 5 services, or
Multiple Air Interfaces or Services: A single operator has access to 10 ports, enabling up to 5 independent services
Wireless operators are now able to lower operating costs and rapidly deploy new services by taking advantage of shared infrastructure. Additionally, tower companies are able to extend the useful life of existing assets without significant capital outlays for site redevelopment. Tower companies and operators are now realizing the maximum bits per tower by reconfiguring their sites with Quintel’s Multiserv Quadband Antennas. Request info
HSPA+ with 64QAM/MIMO is more efficient with SVP
As operators move to HSPA+, this introduces 64QAM modulation, Tx Diversity and Spatial Multiplexing MIMO features to enhance network capacity. However, the impressive headline data rates which HSPA+ promise are only realistically achieved in very good C/I conditions, typically close to the cell site where 64QAM and/or Spatial Multiplexing MIMO works efficiently. Quintel’s Cell-Splitting or Sectorization in the Vertical Plane (SVP) application is gaining more and more interest from operators for HSPA+ for three reasons…
Cell-splitting in the vertical plane naturally creates two cells (an Underlay cell and an Overlay cell) for the same original sector area thus alleviating any capacity constraints, as per any cell-splitting technique.
The Underlay cell optimally serves users close to the cell site thus ensuring 64QAM/MIMO modes of HSPA+ are maximized in terms of C/I, and significantly extends the HSPA+ 64QAM/MIMO footprint.
Quintel’s SVP method can provide Space + Polarization Hybrid branch diversity for each cell. This ensures maximized MIMO branch isolation/de-correlation resulting in extended MIMO Spatial Multiplexing footprint particularly for the Underlay cell, and improved Tx Diversity performance for the Overlay cell.
Quintel’s SVP method offers an optimal means of cell-splitting when compared to alternative cell-splitting techniques such as adding more azimuthal/horizontal sectors at a site, and especially for access technologies which exploit higher order modulation, Tx Diversity and Spatial Multiplexing MIMO, such as HSPA+ and LTE services.
