MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The March issues of MPD and MMD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

Slant-Polarized, 4-Port OMNI Antenna

A newly introduced 4-port, slant-polarized antenna delivers true OMNI performance in a small form factor package and covers the 5150 to 5950 MHz frequency range. This 27” OMNI antenna limits the tower footprint and provides 360º coverage with 13 dBi pre-beamforming antenna gain, making it ideal for micro-pop deployments. It also optimizes 4×4 MU-MIMO’s full capabilities with the Cambium ePMP3000, utilizing the antenna’s two overlapping bidirectional dipole-like patterns. These patterns provide high gain to maximize coverage area and low side lobes to improve isolation between MIMO chains. The new antenna includes a Cambium ePMP3000 radio mount with an aluminum cover that protects the radio and cables from the environment. Also included are 4 x Reverse Polarity SMA to N-Male LMR 195 6” cables. Depending on the radio and terrain, operators can expect coverage to span within 2 to 5 miles of the antenna. This antenna will stand up to the harshest elements with a UB-resistant PVC radome and robust hardware.
