About CellMax Technologies:
CellMax Technologies develops and markets ultra-high efficiency base station antennas for mobile networks. CellMax’s revolutionary antenna technology reduces the power losses within the antenna to close to zero, resulting in higher signal strength and a dramatic increase in geographical area coverage, improved indoor penetration, increased net traffic, improved data throughput and reduced production costs per call.
CellMax’s unique and patented antenna design is based on quasi waveguide technology with air as dielectric, which virtually eliminates power losses; Traditional antennas lose 20-60 percent power through the cables. With CellMax’s antennas, mobile operators can reduce the power consumption in their radio networks by up to 30 percent – or use the same amount of power to improve network performance.
Consumers benefit from a dramatic improvement of indoor coverage, radically improved data speed and capacity, fewer dropped calls, a significant improvement of battery power consumption in the handsets, etc.
CellMax’s customers include several of the world’s largest mobile operators and manufacturers of telecom equipment (e.g. T-Mobile, Huawei, Hutchison, NSN, and ZTE). CellMax antennas have been deployed all over the world and are in use on all six inhabited continents in the world. CellMax was founded in 2001 and has headquarters in Sweden with subsidiaries in the USA and Singapore. See http://www.cellmax.se.
