The concept is used by operators around the world both in network roll-out and optimization phases, for cities as well as rural applications.
The TMB concept offers:
• reduced number of sites thanks to unbeatable up/downlink amplification and sensitivity
• quicker roll-outs with fewer sites and more relaxed location requirements
• easier utilization of existing tower sites and towers (better coverage, reuse of 900MHz grid, less wind load and space requirement)
• easier utilization of existing roof top sites (flexible choice of building and using thin, easy-to-pull indoor feeders)
• higher capacity utilization in BTS’s due to support of multiple carriers per feeder
• extraordinary improvement of EDGE data rate to mobiles (Turbo-EDGE feature)
