SAN DIEGO – PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical Telecom solutions, announced today the launch of a new antenna platform that enables high data rate connectivity for fleet, rail, mass transit, public safety, and M2M applications. These low profile antennas support dual-band 2.4/5 GHz, 4-port MIMO for 802.11n and 802.11ac WLAN standards. The announcement was made at Cisco Live, one of the premier wireless industry events.
“PCTEL antennas provide high performance MIMO capability that is critical for data-intensive applications like live video monitoring, intelligent transportation systems and mobile hot spot configurations”
“Emergency responders and mass transit vehicles rely on high throughput wireless connections to ensure safety and efficiency in their operations,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL’s Connected Solutions. “PCTEL antennas provide high performance MIMO capability that is critical for data-intensive applications like live video monitoring, intelligent transportation systems and mobile hot spot configurations,” added Bharadwaj.
PCTEL’s new antennas deliver high performance 4-port MIMO in a compact package. Traditionally, MIMO requires a spatially separated antenna for each port. PCTEL’s latest High Performance MIMO antennas address space, aesthetic, and installation requirements without sacrificing performance. They combine all four antenna elements into one IP67-rated housing, with a single cable exit that simplifies permanent installation. Like all of PCTEL’s Multiband Mobile MIMO antennas, this platform is available in both permanent and magnetic mount configurations.
PCTEL will be displaying its new multiband mobile MIMO antennas along with its portfolio of wireless broadband antenna products in Booth #1424 at Cisco Live in San Diego, June 9-11.
