TIBERIAS, Israel–Galtronics Corporation Ltd. announced today the launch of its newest MIMO DAS antenna, PEAR™ M5277i for LTE in-building and outdoor environments. The dual-polarized directional antenna supports MIMO in the 698-960 MHz and 1710-2700 MHz frequency ranges for wireless systems such as DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems).

“Galtronics focuses on providing carriers and integrators maximum flexibility in configuring their DAS systems”

In addition to its small size, PEAR M5277i offers ideal concealment for buildings with a focus on in-building aesthetics, such as retail centers and hotels. With MIMO, PEAR in-building DAS antenna solutions require only one antenna to be installed rather than two spatially separated antennas. The flat panel and wall-mounted M5277i antenna can be installed near entrances and beam coverage to grant coverage for the most high-traffic areas. The MIMO capability is also useful in long hallways or near the edge of DAS coverage areas where panel antennas can create the boundary between Macro and DAS networks.

Ideal for outdoor environments, the antenna housing is weatherized and holds up well when installed in parking garages, ingress/egress avenues or large venues like stadiums. In addition to its low PIM performance of < -150 dBc @ 2x 43 dBm, the antenna makes the most efficient use of expensive carrier spectrum resulting in increased capacity.

“Galtronics focuses on providing carriers and integrators maximum flexibility in configuring their DAS systems,” said Ephraim Ulmer, Galtronics president and CEO. “PEAR M5277i offers discreet aesthetics, high performance even in problem areas, ultimate choice of antenna placement and almost unlimited range of bandwidths. This antenna truly is an all-around choice for any MIMO environment.”
