PCTEL, Inc. announced today at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) the launch of its newest multiband antenna for fleet management, asset tracking, and public safety applications. The new dual 4G LTE antenna incorporates MIMO technology to support high data rates for wireless communications. It also includes high rejection GPS and dual-band MIMO WiFi (802.11n) in a single compact housing.

“Rising demand for high-speed mobile data has increased the complexity of vehicular antenna systems”

Commercial and public safety fleets increasingly rely on applications that are powered by high-speed mobile networks. LTE MIMO technology supports high mobile data rates. It uses multiple, spatially-differentiated antennas to maximize throughput. However, the need for spatial differentiation makes it difficult to achieve the desired performance in a low-profile antenna.

PCTEL’s new antenna (GPSHPDLTEMIMO-SF) addresses the LTE MIMO challenge through advanced RF engineering design and adds WiFi and GPS L1 support. A high rejection GPS LNA assembly enables reliable location tracking services while mitigating interference from nearby RF radiating sources. The antenna’s low profile, single-housing design simplifies installation and streamlines the product footprint to address space and aesthetic requirements.

“Rising demand for high-speed mobile data has increased the complexity of vehicular antenna systems,” said Jeff Miller, President of PCTEL Connected Solutions. “With this new dual LTE model, we can provide our customers with a single easy-to-install solution for everything from commuter rail WiFi to real time data and video streaming for emergency response communications and other commercial fleet applications,” added Miller.
