Evolution Timeline of Base Station Antenna

Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Over the year, base station antennas have evolved with the mobile communication technology, e.g. omnidirectional antenna, directional single-polarized antenna, cross-polarized antenna, electric tilt antenna, MIMO (multi-In, multi-out) antenna, active antenna and etc.


Generally speaking, the trend of the evolution is

  • From passive antenna to active antenna
  • From feeder connection to fibre fronthaul
  • Integrated with RRH (Remote Radio Head/Radio Unit)


Below is a infographic of the base station antenna’s evolution timeline.

Mr Kehinde Akinsola

I am inquiring if you can assist in setting up a full mobile network broadband 4G for our new telecommunication project.
We want to have a telecommunication that will either use SIM cards or without.
We would be glad to hear from you.
