  • Antenna Supports Precision Agriculture, Industrial IoT, and Covert Public Safety Applications

    DENVER, Col. – August 14, 2017 -- PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq:PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical TELecom solutions, announced today its new multi-band LTE/Wi-Fi/GNSS antenna with a sub-inch profile. The antenna combines PCTEL’s high rejection multi-GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) technology for precision timing and location tracking with high performance multi-band data connectivity. The antenna is also rugged and easy to install, making it ideal for covert public safety operations, precision agriculture, and the Industrial IoT.

    “Complex, high performance antennas are critical for modern public safety communications, as well as for commercial applications such as mobile asset management. However, vehicles and autonomous systems have limited space for antenna installation. PCTEL’s sub-inch antenna addresses these space limitations while delivering high performance multi-band coverage,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL's Connected Solutions group. “PCTEL also offers external and embedded antenna system design services for customers with more severe antenna size constraints or other specialized requirements,” added Bharadwaj.

    Within its ruggedized ultra-low profile housing, PCTEL’s new antenna supports multi-band LTE MIMO and dual-band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi for data connectivity, as well as GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo GNSS satellite technologies. All GNSS elements feature PCTEL’s proprietary high rejection technology to ensure reliable satellite connectivity in the presence of LTE signals or other interference. The antenna has been fully tested for use in extreme environments and on heavy agricultural equipment.

    PCTEL will display its new multi-band LTE/Wi-Fi/GNSS antenna along with other antenna solutions for public safety communications at APCO 2017 in Denver, Colorado, August 14-15, in booth #1943. The antenna can be ordered using part number GNSMB-COV beginning August 15. Contact PCTEL Connected Solutions or your sales representative for more details.

  • Multiband Trooper™ Fleet Management Antenna Platform Will Be Featured at IWCE

    LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq:PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical TELecom solutions, announced in March of 2017 that their Trooper™ fleet management antenna was recently deployed at the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) for use on the Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System (LA-RICS) for their First Responder Broadband Network. During the event, Trooper reliably delivered high speed data and location information, supporting LA-RICS's concept for a First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) nationwide broadband network.

    FirstNet's mandate to transform first responder communications by creating a truly interoperable, high speed broadband wireless network has revolutionized the public safety industry. To this end, the next generation of public safety communications equipment must support a wide variety of applications, including live video streaming, situational information, navigation, asset tracking, and conventional two-way voice. Support for multiple radio bands is also required to achieve interoperability across agencies and jurisdictions. The result is a complex convergence of technologies, including 4G LTE cellular, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Land Mobile Radio (LMR), and Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

    "Technology convergence challenges require sophisticated antenna solutions. FirstNet's bandwidth speed goals place extreme performance demands on public safety antennas, even as there is less space available on vehicle rooftops," said Rishi Bharadwaj, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL's Connected Solutions group. "PCTEL's Trooper is an RF-efficient, compact, durable, and cost-effective multi-band antenna solution for the next generation of public safety networks," added Bharadwaj.

    The Trooper antenna facilitates optimized data throughput and precision tracking of vehicles and assets. PCTEL's sophisticated engineering and proprietary high rejection GPS technology ensure reliable performance, even during RF intensive, emergency public safety operations. Trooper is also a preferred antenna solution of leading Internet of Things (IoT) router vendors and Land Mobile Radio (LMR) equipment manufacturers.

    PCTEL will demonstrate Trooper at the upcoming International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) booth #1149, March 29-30. Trooper will also be featured at the Product Showcase, located by the entrance of the exhibit hall.
