Optimizer® Dual Polarized Antenna, 1710-2170MHz, 90deg, 16.5dBi, 1.3m, VET, 0-9deg, RET

Rev : F | Rev date : 23 Feb 2021

This X-Polarized side-by-side variable tilt antenna provides exceptional suppression of all upper sidelobes at all downtilt angles. It also features a wide downtilt range.


  • Variable electrical downtilt provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 0-9 deg.
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes (Typically <-18dB)
  • Low profile for low visual impact
  • Dual polarization
  • Broadband design
  • AISG 2.0 Compatible antenna control unit
