New Vehicle-mount Antenna for 6xMIMO Mobile Hotspots
New Mobile Antenna Features Six Connections for WiFi 802.11ac Modems
Itasca, IL, May 6, 2015 — Mobile Mark, Inc. has introduced a new WiFi 6x MIMO Mobile Antenna for 802.11ac networks. The new antenna features six separate connection ports in order to provide optimum MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) performance for the new WiFi 802.11ac modems.
The antenna provides coverage on both 2.4-2.5 & 4.9-6.0 GHz. This allows the antenna to operate on the 5 GHz band for 802.11ac, but also be backwards compatible for 802.11n and 802.11b/g modems. This antenna is ideally suited not only for 6x MIMO but also for dual 3X MIMO.
The LTM603 Series antenna achieves MIMO performance by using six elements housed within the antenna. Jerry Posluszny, Director of Engineering, explained that, “This new 6 port MIMO antenna has exceptional performance characteristics including >20 dB isolation between the elements. It can be used for high speed data transfer in mobile settings such as emergency hot spots or police mobile command units.”
According to Michael Berry, President of Mobile Mark, Inc., “The new 802.11ac networks are designed for high data density, high capacity usage. These new networks need antennas that match the capabilities of the modems and provide the same 6x MIMO coverage. We are excited that our new LTM603 Mobile Antenna provides six WiFi antenna elements in a compact package. ”
The LTM603 antenna measures only 5.5” (14 cm) in diameter and 2.4” (6 cm) high. It offers 4 dBi gain on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band. This gain level provides an effective level of wireless coverage for a mobile hotspot.
The antenna gets high marks for its electrical efficiency and for an antenna isolation figure of greater than 20 dB. It is designed to handle up to 20 watts of power.
Compact and attractive, this antenna is ideal for mobile 802.11ac WiFi MIMO installation.
