RFS Announces Support for 6GHz Band with the Market's Lightest and Most Compact 3ft Antennas

Meriden, CT (United States), November 4, 2014. Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, today announced that its SC3/SCX3 series CompactLine® EASY microwave antennas can be used to support wireless applications in the 6GHz frequency band. Under revised FCC guidelines that permit the use of 3ft antennas in the commonly-used 6GHz frequency, RFS customers can now benefit from the best-in-class performance and compact size of the SC3/SCX3 to achieve overall OPEX and CAPEX savings for microwave backhaul. The antennas are engineered to provide high performance in a light, compact, easy-to-deploy package, which can be as much as 20 percent lighter than competing products on the market.

“Under the FCC’s B2 standards, minimum radiation suppression requirements increased across all categories, requiring a high-performance antenna despite the decrease in size and gain specifications,” said Asad Zoberi, key account manager at RFS. “RFS is pleased to be able to offer our customers antennas that meet the FCC’s most stringent requirements while also allowing them to benefit from the considerable TCO savings of using smaller, more compact products.”

RFS’ SC3/SCX3 series CompactLine-r- EASY microwave antennas give network providers more choice in how they design, build out and upgrade their networks to meet the complex demands of subscribers for high performance application. Available in integrated or direct mount integrations, SC3/SCX3 3ft antennas provide best-in-class radiation patterns that reduce interference and enable easier configuration as part of complete network deployment.

The low-profile, deep dish reflector design and compact mount makes the SC3/SCX3 easy to deploy and results in a very low weight configuration. This innovative structural design minimizes materials without sacrificing mechanical stability, which makes the antennas ideal for deployments where zoning restrictions and tower loading are key considerations.

The single-polarized SC3 series and dual-polarized SCX3 series of 3ft CompactLine-r- EASY antennas are compliant with current FCC and Industry Canada microwave standards.
