Globe Telecom has pioneered the use of next-generation antennas to boost the company’s 4G and 5G network and ensure energy efficiency.
The antenna adopts enhanced multi-array modules, ultra-high integration architecture, and full-band technology.
Its ultra-resolution beam technology provides high-precision beamforming for higher Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) performance and a 15% increase in network capacity. MIMO uses multiple transmitters and receivers for simultaneous data transfer.
Smaller than the traditional design, the antennas make installation easier and faster even on cell sites with limited space, Globe said.
The technology also minimizes feed loss and improves energy efficiency by 10 to 15%. This means that Globe can maximize energy efficiencies and lower electricity utilization through antenna development and power consumption innovation.
In the first quarter of the year, Globe fired up 380 new 5G sites in Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite, Batangas, Bulacan, Davao, Cebu, Misamis Oriental, and Iloilo.
