PCTEL Antenna Enables Fleet & M2M Applications

| May 28, 2015


BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical Telecom solutions, announced today a new antenna that should accelerate the adoption of high-speed LTE wireless technology for fleet, agricultural, and industrial applications. Critical technologies, such as ambulance camera systems, require reliable LTE coverage. These applications require performance critical LTE antennas that can adapt to many physical environments. The latest addition to PCTEL’s popular MLPV antenna line delivers solutions for reliable high-speed data connections without requiring a metallic ground plane for antenna mounting. This flexibility removes one of the final barriers to LTE implementation for fleet, agricultural, industrial, public safety, and health care applications.


“The migration to LTE for fleet and private wireless is accelerating, but installation is often challenging”

“The migration to LTE for fleet and private wireless is accelerating, but installation is often challenging,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL’s Connected Solutions. “This new antenna provides our customers with an easy solution that supports data-intensive features such as video monitoring, analytics-based process automation, and real-time asset tracking.”

PCTEL’s MLPV no ground plane LTE antenna is available now with multiple mounting options. It can be installed anywhere from the side-view mirror of a truck to the fiberglass roof of an ambulance. Order using product number BMLPVMBLTENGP (compatible with most thread mounts) or BMLPVMBLTENGP-VP (N Female bulkhead termination).
