PCTEL has added several new fully sealed omnidirectional antennas to its wireless enterprise and small cell antenna offerings. New models include two new CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) antennas for spectrum sharing applications, and two new high gain Wi-Fi omnidirectional antennas for enterprise and industrial Wi-Fi networks.
“PCTEL’s CBRS antennas will enable small cells to leverage shared spectrum to deliver greater throughput for both public and private LTE networks,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL’s Connected Solutions group. “Our extensive laboratory and testing facilities in the United States and China enable PCTEL to deliver innovative antennas and wireless products that meet the strict quality and performance standards of the world’s leading wireless carriers, equipment manufacturers, and internet service providers.”
PCTEL’s engineers worked closely with major small cell and enterprise Wi-Fi OEMs to develop the new antennas. All four models are IP67 rated for outdoor applications and deliver exceptional performance under harsh environmental conditions. The Wi-Fi antennas provide 9 dBi high gain performance with wideband coverage in all 2.4 GHz (MHO24007NMIP) or 5 GHz (MHO59009NMIP) bands. The CBRS antennas (BOA34006N series) are available with N Female or N Male termination options.
