RF Elements


RF Elements Array Sector 3Ghz 17 dBi Antenna




RF elements® 3 GHz Array Sector antennas are optimized for high performance in 3400 - 3800 MHz (LTE bands 42, 43). They offer excellent RF performance, co-location capability, easy installation, and cost-efficiency. The gain of 3 GHz Array Sector is stable in both polarizations, offering excellent and reliable performance. The side lobes of Array Sector antennas are suppressed using BackShield™, our patented, frequency selective surface attenuating azimuth side lobes and back lobe, integrated into the antenna body. The antenna is light and made of high-quality non-corrosive materials for long-lasting performance.

  • Introducing The New 3GHz Array Sectors 
    • The new 3 GHz Array Sector Antennas are superior patch array antennas optimized for excellent performance in sectorial coverage and cluster applications.
  • Best in Class Performance
    • Gain stability across spectrum
      • RF elements® 3 GHz Array Sector Antennas gain performance is very stable in the whole useful bandwidth. Antennas deliver excellent performance regardless which channel is used.
    • Wide Band Performance
      • 3GHz Array Sector Antennas are optimized for high performance in 3400 - 3800MHz, covering CBRS bands, as well as LTE bands 42, 43.
    • BackShieldTM for cluster deployments
      • Array Sector Antennas have integrated BackShieldTM - patented frequency-selective surfaces attenuating azimuthal side lobes and back radiation significantly improving the co-location capability.
    • Light & Compact
      • Array Sector Antennas are made of high grade aluminium that makes them compact, light, and  extremely durable.
  • Stable Gain Across The Band 
    • The gain of Array Sector antennas remains very stable across the working band (3400 - 3800MHz).
    • VSWR values are excellent across the whole useful spectrum for maximum power delivered from a radio to the antenna.
  • Optimized For Co-Location 
    • ​​​​​​​Array Sector Antennas feature BackShieldTM, our patented structure that effectively mitigates sidelobes in azimuthal plane and parasitic back radiation.
    • BackshieldTM significantly improves co-location capability in dense cluster deployments.
  • BackShieldTM 
    • BackShieldTM is our patented frequency-selective surface that effectively attenuates back radiation and the side lobes in the azimuthal plane.
    • BackShieldTM is integrated into the antenna structure so there is no need for aftermarket accessory shields.
