WISPs Debut from KP Performance Antennas

KP Performance Antennas, a manufacturer of WISP (Wireless Internet Service Provider) antennas, announced today that it has released a new line of high-performance, 2 GHz sector antennas for use in WISP networks.

KP Performance Antenna's KDP-2DP120S-45 WISP antenna.

KP’s new line of LTE (Long Term Evolution) 2 GHz sector antennas consists of three new models: KP-2DP120S-45, a 14 dBi sector with 120° azimuth beamwidth, the KPPA-2GHZDP60S-17-45, a 15.1 dBi sector with a 60° azimuth beamwidth, and the KPPA-2GHZDP90S-45 which provides 17 dBi of gain with a 90° azimuth beamwidth.

These 2 GHz sector antennas use a ±45-degree slant dual polarization scheme and are specially designed with optimized front to back and side lobes that allow for frequency reuse. These antennas feature heavy-duty weatherized sector brackets, select models also include jumper cables and radio brackets. These LTE sector antennas also deliver high-gain in a compact shell for ease of deployment. All models in this line operate in the popular 2.3 GHz to 2.7 GHz frequency range and deliver VSWR from 1.3:1 to 2.1.

Justin Pollock, Ph.D., Antenna Engineer at KP Performance Antennas, stated that the company's new 2 GHz sectors are engineered to provide vastly improved coverage and spectral efficiency in LTE deployments through their high-gain, fixed electrical downtilt and optimized patterns with sharp roll-off past their 3 dB beamwidths and superior front-to-back.
