Mobile World Congress, BARCELONA, SPAIN: Mesaplexx, an innovative start-up company specialising in developing products and intellectual property in electromagnetic engineering and high performance filters, announced the launch of xCube. This revolutionary radio filter technology has the capability to radically improve the performance of active antenna systems (AASs), enabling increases in network capacity of up to 65 per cent.
AASs are capable of significantly increasing base station site efficiency and performance, dramatically improving network capacity and coverage. However, until now a number of technical obstacles have prevented AASs from achieving their true performance potential, all linked to one of the technology’s smallest components - the radio filter. The current filters used with active antennas create significant loss, detracting from the benefits that active antennas can bring.
xCube, Mesaplexx’s high performance radio filter technology, eradicates these problems. The xCube is a cool running, low loss, high isolation filter that improves sensitivity and handles much more power. These benefits, combined with its compact size, enables AAS vendors to deliver 50% more power output for the same input, delivering significant increases in range and capacity. With more power output and less heat being generated multi-band and multi-technology solutions can come within reach.
