Higher order sectorization and the site densification are the two renowned solutions for the cellular system capacity crunch. However, in order to take adequate benefits of these techniques they should be implemented with optimal antenna configuration. This chapter highlights the gain of using an optimized antenna configuration for three- and six-sector sites in achieving a better network coverage and network quality (i.e., capacity). Unlike traditional wide 65° HPBW antenna, this chapter also focuses on the use of other narrow HPBW antennas for three- and six-sector sites. This chapter provides detailed analysis of network performance from coverage, capacity, spectral-efficiency, power-efficiency, and cost-efficiency point of view. It also provides a fair comparison between the network rollout with traditional three-sector sites and higher order six-sector sites. Similarly, the impact of site densification along with sector densification is also studied in this chapter.
