The Antenna Firm Releases New Wi-Fi 6E MIMO Antenna System
The Antenna Company announced the release of a new Wi-Fi 6E MIMO antenna system to increase network capacity, range, and latency in IIoT networks. The system enables simultaneous operation in the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz frequency bands, resulting in an additional 1.2 GHz spectrum.
The design supports 15 antennas, including dedicated 4×4 5 GHz, 4×4 6 GHz and 4×4 2.4 / 5 GHz WiFi antennas. Furthermore, a paired Wi-Fi antenna isolation of more than 45 dB is achieved for simultaneous operation in the 5 GHz band.
The system design also includes a UWB option for RTLS (Real-Time Location System) services. This includes access control, indoor navigation, asset tracking, and contact tracking. Channels 5 and 9 are supported for worldwide frequency coverage
According to a company press release, additional features include:
- Compact design that allows enterprise access points to be reduced in size by 20% or more without compromising antenna system performance.
- Low input impedance required to achieve peak data rates for 80/160 MHz channels;
- Uniform radio coverage to avoid zeros and blind spots.
In addition, a 0.9 / 2.4 GHz IoT antenna is included in tri-band 2.4 / 5/6 GHz antennas for radio spectrum management.
