Antennas support spectrum utilized by T-Mobile for LTE and 5G, in
addition to other frequencies and FirstNet applications
SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Taoglas,
a leading provider of IoT antenna and RF solutions, today announced it
is first to market with the industry’s broadest range of external
combination antennas that support all cellular carrier bands. These
include the 600MHz
spectrum being used by T-Mobile to launch nationwide 5G and NB-IoT
services in the United States. Antennas within Taoglas’ popular
Guardian, Synergy and Apex antenna ranges now support 600MHz without
changes to their product enclosures or footprint, making them an ideal
fit for routers, modems and other devices that serve applications in
retail, enterprise backup for business continuity, and public safety,
including FirstNet applications.
T-Mobile is aggressively deploying in the 600MHz spectrum, utilizing the
low-band spectrum to roll out its 5G and NB-IoT networks across the U.S.
in lower frequencies. With 600MHz possessing longer wavelengths than
traditional cellular services, it allows signals to travel further with
fewer antennas required, and it also has much more effective building
penetration. However, antennas need to be larger to accommodate
frequencies with longer wavelengths and also the much wider bandwidth
requirements of full coverage LTE and 5G. The expertise and experience
of Taoglas’ engineering team with both embedded and external wideband
antennas has allowed it to add 600MHz capabilities to its combination
antennas within the same product enclosures.
“As router and modem vendors prepare for the next generation of LTE
availability and 5G with new product launches, today’s customers want to
ensure they are covered on all bands that the routers offer,” said Tim
Dolan, vice president of North American sales at Taoglas. “Taoglas has
the first and broadest product line-up of external combination antennas
that supports all the U.S. carrier bands for cellular, including LTE
Band 71 at 600MHz that is utilized by T-Mobile.”
Taoglas’ cellular combination antennas that also support the 600MHz
frequency band include:
MA931, a low-profile 6-in-1 wall- and adhesive-mount antenna, is
the first compact combination antenna specifically designed for IoT
gateway and router devices. The robust, high-performance and fully
IP67 waterproof antenna can be mounted internally or externally.
MA1509, is a 9-in-1 next-generation permanent-mount antenna for
vehicle roof applications. The MA1509 is ideal for applications that
utilize new high-performance data routers where only one antenna is
desired, for example, video transmission to and from remote assets and
II TG.35, a wideband cellular LTE dipole antenna with the highest
wideband efficiency of any terminal antenna on the market.
PCS.66.A, an SMT onboard embedded antenna for IoT applications. This
is mounted on the short edge of the PCB and, like all Taoglas cellular
LTE antennas, it also covers 3G and 2G bands to allow for fallback
when LTE is not available.
an internal flexible “peel and stick” antenna, has been designed to
cover all working frequencies in the 600-3000 MHz spectrum. It is
delivered with 3M tape and adhesive with excellent electrical
performance on all bands, and is ground independent.
“Many of the applications that will benefit from additional coverage and
services are in low-signal environments, such as inside buildings for
point of sale (POS) systems in retail and in enterprise business
continuity applications. And of course, public safety applications are
required everywhere, so FirstNet capabilities are critical,” said Dolan.
“Taoglas’ antennas are delivering this all in a single package,
providing high performance within a small, workable form factor.”
