EDMONTON, Alberta – KP Performance Antennas in Edmonton, Alberta, is introducing a line of seven high-gain, dual-band sector antennas for use in wireless networks in point-to-multi-point applications like airport infrastructure using many of the popular radios in the wireless Internet service provider (WISP) market.

Each of KP's line of seven dual sector antennas each consists of two or more sector antennas inside a rugged radome. The single mounting point of these antennas reduces inches on the tower, halves the tower rental costs, and lowers wind resistance.

They also provide a rapid upgrade path to add frequency bands without installing more infrastructure. These antennas come with four or eight ports and support 2x2, 4x4 and 8x8 multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO), depending on the model.

The straight-on models provide two forward-facing, high-gain, 65- or 90-degree sector antennas in one radome, one for each frequency band and come in frequency combinations of 2 to 3 GHz, 2 to 5 GHz, 3 to 5 GHz, or 5 to 5 GHz.

They have clean patterns and provide complete 360-degree coverage while minimizing interference. They also come with mounting space for two ePMP radios, have four N-Type female connectors and hot-dip galvanized steel sector brackets.

The side-angle models combine two 65-degree sector antennas in one radome and mounted 60 degrees apart -- two ports are angled at -60 degrees and the other two ports at +60 degrees, for a total of 120-degree of coverage using two 2x2 MIMO radios on one antenna.

These antennas achieve 360-degree coverage while minimizing interference with three side-angle sectors connected to six 2x2 MIMO radios around a tower in frequency reuse ABCABC.
