Scaling the capacity of network expansion.Wireless network traffic is growing exponentially across all traffic types, especially data usage. Solutions to meet such demands include small cell topologies, more spectrally efficient access technologies (LTE, LTE-A, etc.), more spectrum being retasked in existing bands (re-farming), more spectrum bands being released, Self-Optimizing Network (SON) techniques, and more antennas for exploiting Spatial Multiplexing and Beamforming MIMO spectral efficiencies. For example, many operators now typically need to consider how to operate with 5+ unique spectrum bands, 3+ technologies, MIMO, and deliver these with efficient spectral use from existing infrastructure sites. These challenges and opportunities are where Quintel’s innovative antenna technology can make the difference.
Quintel’s innovative technology is dramatically more economical, quicker to deploy and scalable.
QTilt™ is a unique and patented technology that maximizes the output of existing sites while minimizing the number of sites needed for network coverage and capacity. QTilt actually doubles the output of any standard form factor antenna, thereby eliminating redundant costs—related to site acquisition, development and backhaul—while maintaining the highest level of network performance.
The scientific innovations used in the development of QTilt were initially developed by a world class research institute, QinetiQ. As a commercial spin-out, Quintel has productized this superior technology, enabling operators to increase their infrastructure’s capacity with a minimum of operational disruption or burdensome capital expenditures by:
- Maximizing utilization of site capital assets
- Minimizing sites needed for coverage and capacity
- Increasing speed-to-revenue
- Reducing planning/zoning concerns
- Reducing capital expenditures
- Decreasing operating expenses, e.g. rentals, backhaul, and site construction
QTilt has no internal mechanical moving parts, thus it is able to increase antenna infrastructure reliability across all current and future radio access technologies. It also provides the flexibility to host multiple standards (including GSM, cdma, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, and WiMax) and spectrum bands on a standard antenna preserving independent control within the same spectrum band. As a result, operators can now:
- Overlay multiple service standards, such as GSM and UMTS
- Achieve greater efficiencies by sharing with multiple operators
- Leverage optimization by modulation and subscriber
By doubling antenna output, QTilt maximizes site output and minimize the sites needed to achieve cost-effective spectrum re-farming, service upgrades, and multi-operator sharing. There’s simply no more efficient way to meet the challenge of subscriber growth—and realize the opportunity for operator profit.
