Optimizer® Dual Polarized Antenna, 1710-2170, 88deg, 17.9/17.7dBi, 1.8m, VET, 0-10deg RET

Rev : E | Rev date : 23 Feb 2021

This X-Polarized variable tilt antenna provides exceptional suppression of all upper sidelobes at all downtilt angles. It also features a wide downtilt range. The antenna comes pre-connected with one antenna control unit (ACU).


  • Variable electrical downtilt - provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 0-10 deg.
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes (Typically <-18dB)
  • Low profile for low visual impact
  • Dual polarization
  • Broadband design
  • Includes AISG 2.0 Compatible ACU-A20-N or ACU-A20-S antenna control unit
