Blade AAU 2.0 is the first commercial integrated antenna solution, which utilizes a modular architecture combining 5G active modules and passive antennas.
An issue on telecom sites is the lack of space. This solution allows for a one-box design instead of 5G MIMO unit plus several antennas. This means a smaller footprint and an extremely simplified site. The user-friendly interfaces facilitate the installation and maintenance. The platform design supports different configurations, achieving customized delivery.
Blade AAU 2.0 is simple, flexible, and easy to deploy, which are key attributes to help accelerate the evolution of 5G networks.
