  • Publication number: 20180026379
    Abstract: In one example, a base station system comprises a base station radio unit for at least a first operating frequency and a plurality of linear antenna arrays. Each linear antenna array may comprise a plurality of radiating antenna elements, and the plurality of linear antenna arrays may be disposed in a horizontal plane. In one example, at least one set of linear antenna arrays of the plurality of linear antenna arrays for a first operating frequency has an array separation distance of substantially 1.6+1.1n wavelengths apart for the first operating frequency, where n is an integer greater than or equal to zero. In addition, in one example, the plurality of linear antenna arrays includes at least one linear antenna array for a second operating frequency that is different from the first operating frequency.

  • Patent number: 9438278
    Abstract: In one example, the present disclosure describes an antenna system with at least two linear antenna arrays, each having a plurality of antenna elements. Each array is designed to transmit and receive signals from different respective spectrum bands. The first antenna array and second antenna array are arranged to form one longer, combined linear array of antenna elements. In addition, at least one antenna element is shared between the first and second antenna arrays. In one example, the first antenna array is connected to a first RF distribution and phase-shifting network to distribute RF power and impart a phase profile across the first antenna array and the second antenna array is connected to a second RF distribution and phase-shifting network to distribute RF power and impart a phase profile across the second antenna array.

  • Publication number: 20150195001
    Abstract: In one example, an antenna system includes a radio base station for transmitting an RF signal via a transmission port, an RF splitting means for receiving the RF signal from the radio base station and for splitting the RF signal into two component signals, and at least two antennas separated by a distance greater than one wavelength and connected to the RF splitting means for transmitting the respective component signals such that an inferometric radiation gain pattern is created. The radio base station communicates with at least one mobile terminal via a dispersive multi-path radio channel where an angular spread of RF energy between the at least two antennas and the at least one mobile terminal causes nulls of the inferometric radiation pattern across a range of angles to be reduced.
