Antenna Installations Made Easier
With the holiday season approaching, think for just a second of past boxes you’ve received. Now, didn’t you like it when you opened one and found there was ‘no assembly required’? It’s all put together, you just took it out of the box and whatever was inside just worked?
The same thing is true in the field, when installing new cell sites. The old saying that “time is money” still rings true with aggressive build plans and tight installation deadlines, and the demand for fast, long distance, high capacity microwave link installations continues at a rapid rate.
CommScope realizes these quick timelines challenge our end users and installation crews. In order to speed antenna installations, we have released a new antenna line, Quick Deploy. Quick Deploy uses our current 3, 4 and 6 ft single and dual pole ValuLine antennas which are shipped fully assembled.
These premium Class 3 ValuLine antennas are assembled by experienced technicians in our manufacturing facilities. The antennas are packed in rugged packaging with plastic covering to protect against weather during shipping. Once on-site crews simply remove the antenna from the packaging and it’s ready for hoisting on the tower. Time spent assembling the antenna and mount is eliminated!
Quick Deploy antennas from CommScope are designed to meet our customers’ needs and demands for fast installations as they expand and improve their networks.
Check out the new Quick Deploy antennas.
