Mobile Mark Introduces Dual-carrier Antenna Solution for Fleet Management Installations covering LTE, WiFi and GNSS
Itasca, IL – October 8, 2019 – Mobile Mark 9-cable LTMG944 Multiband Antenna is designed for the new 5G-ready Routers & Gateways covering Dual Carrier 4xLTE MIMO, 4xWiFi MIMO, and GNSS. This 9-in-1 dual-carrier antenna solution model expands Mobile Mark’s LTM Series that has become the industry standard for Public Transit Communications, Public Safety and Vehicle Fleet Management.
This addition contains NINE separate antenna elements housed within a single antenna radome. There are four Cellular/LTE elements, four WiFi elements and one GNSS element covering GPS, Glonass and Galileo. The LTM900 Series can also be configured with fewer elements, for example the LTMG942 contains 4xLTE, 2xWiFi and 1xGNSS.
The LTMG944 model can be paired with multi-connection 5G-ready routers and gateways already on the market. The Cellular/LTE elements are designed to accommodate dual-carrier MIMO coverage (i.e. 2xMIMO on two different Cellular Carriers) or 4xMIMO for 5G. Complete cellular coverage is offered from 694-960 & 1710-3700 MHz; dual-band WiFi coverage on 2.4 & 5 GHz and GNSS coverage on GPS & Galileo (1575 MHz) and Glonass (1612 MHz).
Michael Berry, Mobile Mark’s President and CEO is enthusiastic about this newest addition, “Our new dual-carrier antenna solution series is compatible with the latest fleet management modems and routers offering Dual-Carrier coverage. A single antenna provides MIMO coverage for each Carrier.”
In addition to providing Dual-carrier coverage, the antenna also provides broadband coverage. Berry added, “We are happy to report that Mobile Mark’s new 9-cable 5G-ready antennas are in production today with efficient, 5 dBi gain on the FCC allocated 5G mid-bands of 3550-3700 MHz as well as being backwards compatible for other Cellular frequencies.”
The antenna is housed in the attractive, recognizable LTM radome in a choice of black or white radome. It is sold as a kit with 1-foot pigtails (LMR-100 except RG174 on GPS) and 14-foot Jumper Cables. The antenna elements all fit in a compact radome that measures only 5.5” in diameter by 2.38” high (140 mm x 60 mm). The LTMG944 Series antennas are currently available as surface mounted antennas, but not as mag-mounts.
For high-vibration applications such as mining or large earth moving equipment, Mobile Mark has developed a proprietary construction technique with superior Shock & Vibration test results. This option is available for the LTM944 Series antennas.
This dual-carrier antenna solution is Made-in-the-USA. Berry pointed out, “We are particularly proud of the fact that these antennas are designed and manufactured in our Itasca, Illinois factory.”
