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.
