Laird Technologies Releases New 90-Degree Dual Slant 45 WiMax Base Station Antenna
New High-Performance Antenna Ideal for Maximal Ratio Combining (MRC), MIMO, and Other Wireless Wide Area Network Applications
St. Louis, Missouri, USA - April 4, 2008 - 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 its new 90-Degree Dual Slant 45 WiMax Base Station Antenna. Laird Technologies utilized state-of-the-art design tools to design the 2.5GHz 90-degree dual slant 45 antenna to be fully compliant with ETSI EN 301.525 CS pattern specifications. The antenna is also ideal for Maximal Ratio Combining (MRC) and MIMO applications.
This new high-performance antenna operates across the 2.3 - 2.7GHz frequency band and offers a maximum null fill (-25 degree) feature to help eliminate dead spots below the antenna. A high 16dBi gain extends area coverage.
The WiMax base station antenna's many features include low side lobe performance, excellent front-to-back ratio, and high-level co-located antenna-to-antenna isolation. The result is a precise antenna pattern that minimizes interference and provides a cleaner signal. In addition, rugged tilt-mount hardware offers convenience and a very cost-effective product.
"Our new antenna is ideal for MRC and MIMO applications that require range and capacity enhancement for wireless wide area networks," said Tinu Oza, Laird Technologies' product manager. "We expect the antenna's highly predictable pattern and consistent performance will be appreciated by operators deploying WiMax mobile and fixed applications."
