50% Fewer 3G Sites Required With Quintel Operator Sharing

Quintel's Operator Sharing Application Minimizes Tower Development and Increases Site Tenancy

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - Quintel®, a leading innovator of network efficient antennas for wireless networks, has completed technical trials with five major operators in India, preceding the country's much anticipated 3G network deployment. Quintel's unique application lets multiple operators consolidate infrastructure and share a single triple array stack. Additionally, new 3G services can be provisioned at the optimal height enabling superior coverage and decreased infrastructure expenses with no impact on existing 2G network footprints.

"Operators can now obtain the optimal antenna height to achieve maximum coverage and capacity," said Steve Obsitnik, Quintel's chairman and CEO. "Consequently, the OPEX per subscriber is reduced as fewer antenna sites are required. Infrastructure providers can also extract the maximum capacity from their physical sites without incurring tower redevelopment costs, which favorably increases their tenancy ratios."

The Quintel Solution

The Quintel MultiServ Quadband 10 Port antenna, part of the Quintel MultiServ product family, is able to provision up to five services on a single antenna while maintaining full independent tilt control. Unlike conventional operator sharing, Quintel's solution empowers operators to optimize quality of service, reduce infrastructure costs and more quickly and efficiently expand their services. Additionally, tower companies are able to extend their business model, maximize site tenancy ratios and optimize rental revenue by getting the maximum bits of throughput from their existing assets with no further upgrades.
