Laird Technologies Introduces New HDDA5W HD Series(TM) High Performance Dish Antenna

Dish Antenna Offers Industry-Leading Point-to-Point Backhaul Antenna Performance

St. Louis, Missouri, USA - Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the introduction of its new HDDA5W HD Series(TM) high performance dish antenna.

Offering antenna system engineers one of the best performing point-to-point backhaul antennas available on the market, the HDDA5W dish antenna operates in the 4.9 to 5.875 GHz band and is available in four different models with two different gains and two different polarities:

o HDDA5W-29 29 dBi single polarity (Horizontal or Vertical)

o HDDA5W-29-DP 29 dBi dual polarity (Horizontal and Vertical )

o HDDA5W-32 32 dBi single polarity (Horizontal or Vertical)

o HDDA5W-32-DP 32 dBi dual polarity (Horizontal and Vertical)

"With wideband operation, and available in a number of configurations, the HDDA5W HD Series high performance dish antenna provides excellent performance in point-to-point links operating over greater distances," said Quaid Rasheed, Laird Technologies BWA Antenna Product Manager. "They incorporate a rugged design contributing to a long operating service life in extreme environments and comply with ETSI standards."

The antennas meet ETSI EN 302.326-3 DN1-DN5 and EN 300 833 Class 1 specifications, the most stringent specifications for point-to-point backhaul antennas. The unique feed system is available in a single polarization version which can be mounted for either vertical or horizontal polarization. There is also a dual polarized version available for those systems which can utilize dual polarization to increase bandwidth or implement diversity. An optional fiberglass radome is available for added environmental protection.

The HDDA5W dish antenna is designed for 802.11 applications, OFDM systems, cellular backhaul systems, point-to-point backhaul systems, and public safety communications systems. For more information, please logon to
