CommScope and Nokia have created a new interleaved passive-active antenna radio platform. The platform simplifies the introduction of 5G NR by allowing deployment on existing sites, without needing an additional footprint. As a result, users can deploy 5G services faster and keep up with demand for mobile broadband services. The platform also features a purely passive module that supports multiple bands in the range 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz, and a passive-active module that includes TDD beamforming functionality for 5G n78 (3.4-3.8 GHz). Both of those modules can be customized to support combinations of low- and mid-band capabilities and different radio options for 5G band n78.
