To insure superior link margins for operators, the MTR3010 has an 18 dBi gain, flat-panel antenna designed using REMEC's proprietary artificial intelligence optimization software. In addition, the transmit power to the antenna is 28 dBm (P1 dB) and is activated on a packet-to-packet basis. This dynamic transmit muting function insures low interference in systems with high subscriber density and reliability is enhanced because the overall heat dissipation is reduced. A low receive noise figure also contributes to excellent receive sensitivity. Local oscillator phase noise is also low, insuring that that the transceiver can process multi-carrier and 64 QAM modulated signals.
