First-of-its-kind SENCITY® Urban antenna adopts existing city infrastructure such as street furniture for widespread 4G and 5G deployment.

HUBER+SUHNER has today launched its compact omnidirectional and directional outdoor antennas for use in 4G and 5G deployments.

Operators are faced with the challenge of providing cost-effective 4G and 5G in urban areas. Small cells are critical to providing increased capacity and coverage in urban areas where networks are highly congested with growing numbers of wireless devices. However, creating new cellular sites in urban areas is very challenging with only limited space available for installation and restrictions by municipal governments.

To overcome this, HUBER+SUHNER has developed small omnidirectional and directional antennas to maximise performance. The new SENCITY Urban 100 and 200 outdoor MIMO antennas cover both 4G and 5G high frequency ranges and are as compact as possible for discreet installation in different types of street furniture, such as bus shelters, poles or walls, depending on the location, thanks to various bracket mounting options.

“Operators are under pressure to provide widespread, fast 4G and 5G coverage in urban areas where space is limited and existing infrastructure is condensed and our unique range of outdoor MIMO antennas can play a major role in overcoming these challenges in small cell deployment,” said Claudia Bartholdi, Product Manager at HUBER+SUHNER. “At the moment there are no other antennas on the market that are as compact as the SENCITY Urban 100 and 200 that cover 4G and 5G bands, so we are incredibly excited to be releasing the SENCITY Urban series to the wider industry.”

The SENCITY Urban range is available from this month and is the latest addition to the broad 5G portfolio from HUBER+SUHNER.
