Powerwave Introduces 1900MHZ Tower Mounted Amplifier

Designed to enhance coverage and improve the uplink signal quality for RET antennas in UMTS and AWS networks, the TMA is also AISG compatible

CTIA WIRELESS 2007, ORLANDO, Fla., Booth #2163, March 28, 2007 - Powerwave Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:PWAV), a global source for end-to-end wireless infrastructure solutions, today expanded its growing line-up of tower mounted amplifiers (TMAs) with the introduction of a 1900MHz TMA at CTIA Wireless 2007, the world's largest event for the wireless industry.

The 1900MHz TMA is designed to enhance coverage and improve up-link signal quality for Remote Eletrical Tilt (RET) antennas used in Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) and Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) cellular networks.

The product is compliant with Antenna Interface Standards Group (AISG) specifications designed to control antenna products with digital remote control and monitoring facilities, including RET functionality. Powerwave's 1900MHz TMA offers exceptional performance and power handling, low noise figure, low insertion loss and high reliability.

Powerwave has deployed more than 1.3 million tower mounted amplifiers for hundreds of cellular, PCS, GSM and 3G networks around the globe, said Ronald J. Buschur, President and Chief Executive Office, Powerwave Technologies. Our TMAs offer state-of-the-art functionality, a compact design and the power to optimize the coverage and capacity of today's next-generation networks that benefits both network operator and subscriber.

Powerwave's 1900MHz TMA leverages active components integrated within the filter body, providing an extremely reliable, compact, lightweight and cost-effective solution. Easy to install, the 1900MHz TMA simplifies network logistics, particularly when the frequency bands are scattered, and is comprised of high-Q band-pass filters and balanced low-noise amplifiers with circuits for active bias, supervision, alarms and lightning protection. A vented enclosure design prevents condensation, ensuring long, reliable, maintenance-free service in all environments.
