Each pair of antenna ports comprising a corresponding first antenna port for a first polarization and second antenna port for a second orthogonal polarization. A beamforming arrangement comprises four beam ports and is configured to apply beam weights to each one of the antenna ports. The present invention also relates to a corresponding method.

A branching device (10) includes a switch (SW1), a fixed filter circuit (11), and a tunable filter (TF1). The switch (SW1) includes a common terminal (Ps11) and individual terminals (Ps12, Ps13). The fixed filter circuit (11) is connected to the individual terminal (Ps12) and has a fixed pass band. The tunable filter (TF1) is connected to the individual terminal (Ps13) and has a tunable pass band. The fixed filter circuit (11) includes filters (FIL1, FIL2) having different pass bands. The pass bands of the filters (FIL1, FIL2) correspond to frequency bands to be used in carrier aggregation.
