Carrier Aggregation (CA) is a process that bonds two or more blocks of spectrum into a wider channel, enabling faster data services in mobile networks, and allowing for mobile devices to communicate instantaneously on multiple LTE bands. But how do operators overcome the CA challenge of avoiding interference between the bands while minimizing insertion loss? The answer is multiplexers. Multiplexers are designed to integrate the required filters for multiple aggregate bands, provide isolation within and between the bands, and allow for them to simultaneously connect to the antenna.
