Broadband LTE Antennas Are Needed for 4G LTE Rollouts

Schiller Park, IL - Cellular 4G rollouts are happening now. Mobile Network Operators are using the established 850 & 1900 MHz bands but most are adding some combination of new bands as they move into 4G offerings: the 700 MHz band, 800 MHz band, AWS bands at 1.7 & 2.1 GHz or the WiMAX/LTE band at 2.5 GHz. New modems will be equipped to handle US cellular frequencies from 694 MHz to 2.7 GHz.

Antennas that cover only the 850 & 1900 MHz bands will not provide optimal performance on the new 4G Cellular bands. Next Generation LTE antennas will be required to operate on several frequency bands and Mobile Mark's broadband, LTE-compatible, antennas cover all of the critical bands including 694-894 MHz as well as 1.7-2.7 GHz.

For Mobile or Fixed Remote installations, Mobile Mark's broadband RM-WLF-1C Surface Mount Antenna operates from 690 MHz to 2.7 GHz, and is only 3-inches tall. This LTE compatible antenna is ideal for commercial or industrial M2M (machine to machine) information transfer such as high quality video surveillance or streaming video for digital signage. 4G speeds are not just for consumers. There will be plenty of commercial applications that will require rugged, dependable surface mount LTE antennas for optimal high-speed data transfer.

According to Ken Lukowski, VP Sales, "Not only is this broadband antenna rated for very high electrical efficiency, but it is also extremely rugged and able to operate in difficult setting such as extreme weather conditions or in settings susceptible to vandalism or impact damage." These are exactly the kinds of settings where reliable machine to machine information transmission is most critical.

Mobile Mark's SMW-305 Multiband/Multi-cable Antenna combines multiple applications in the same antenna housing. This three-cable antenna covers GPS, WiFi and Cellular. The "cellular" cable is extremely broadbanded covering 694 - 894 MHz and 1.7 - 2.7 GHz.

Mag-mount versions are available for both antenna styles. All of these antennas work on any Cellular frequency used by any Cellular Carrier including the established 850 & 1900 MHz bands, LTE 700 MHz, AWS bands at 1.7 & 2.1 GHz, or WiMAX/LTE at 2.5-2.7 GHz.

"Mobile Mark's philosophy," according to Michael Berry, President, "is to provide a palette of cutting edge RF designs so that our customers have a variety of dependable, high performance antennas with which they can build out their LTE antenna solutions." Mobile Mark's 700 MHz LTE antennas can be used for either Commercial or Public Safety LTE antenna applications.
