Abstract (en)

The architecture of the antenna enables the problems of conventional intelligent antennas to be resolved, and it is characterised by being: a) compatible with any base station, without it being necessary to change the latter when you wish to replace the conventional antenna by an intelligent antenna; b) modular, so that if it is necessary to increase the number or the bands of frequencies another base station does not have to be used, as it is enough to add new modules; c) multioperator, which implies that it can be used by both one operator and shared by several; d) multistandard, which implies that it can be shared for use with different cellular telecommunications standards. Specifically, the architecture (6) is formed of an array of antennas (7), a diplexer (8), and by modules for every one of the standards (10), (11) and (12), with these modules having radio frequency (13), radio software (14) and beam shaping (15) subsystems. <IMAGE>
