Wi-Fi NOW is partnering with The Antenna Firm to show the significance of antenna system design for next-generation multi-Gbps Wi-Fi merchandise
From Claus Hetting, CEO and Chairman of Wi-Fi NOW & ANTENNA Company
February 16, 2021 Eindhoven, Netherlands: Innovative antenna system provider The Antenna Company and Wi-Fi NOW announced today that they are partnering to advance the argument for high-performance Wi-Fi using SuperShape ™ antenna technology. The companies will work together to educate network device developers for business and consumers on the benefits of high performance embedded antenna systems for enhancing the Wi-Fi user experience while enabling more compact and attractive industrial designs.
The world of Wi-Fi is changing rapidly as new bands are introduced and devices need to support more antennas to achieve higher data rates. To meet the need for all of the above and smaller device form factors, The Antenna Company, based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, has developed a family of embedded Wi-Fi 6E antenna systems that increase network capacity, extend range and reduce latency shall be .
The antenna system enables simultaneous operation in the frequency bands 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz, which leads to an additional spectrum of 1.2 GHz and a more than two-fold increase in the available channels.

“We are very excited to be working with The Antenna Company as our official partner for embedded Wi-Fi 6 / 6E antennas. We believe that Antenna Company’s performance-optimized approach to embedded antenna system design will enable businesses and consumers to take full advantage of the additional spectrum required for bandwidth-intensive applications, ”said Claus Hetting, CEO and Chairman of Wi-Fi NOW.
“The introduction of Wi-Fi 6E requires high-performance antennas not only to maximize Wi-Fi throughput and coverage, but also to ensure low latency and coexistence with services in adjacent bands. Our SuperShape ™ approach to antenna system design results in 3D optimized radiation patterns with superior isolation between antennas, ”said David Favreau, CEO of The Antenna Company. “We are excited to partner with Wi-Fi NOW to demonstrate the importance of antenna system design to the new generation of multi-Gbit / s Wi-Fi products.”
