Panel Antenna for WiFi MIMO Networks

New Panel Antenna Features 6 Connections to Maximize Performance on WiFi MIMO 802.11ac Networks

Itasca, IL, February 1, 2015 – Mobile Mark, Inc. has introduced a new WiFi MIMO 6x Panel
Antenna for 802.11ac networks.  The antenna featured six separate connection ports in order to
provide optimum WiFi MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) performance for the new
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.

The PND10-W-AC6-GRY panel antenna achieves WiFi MIMO performance by using multiple
polarizations for the six elements housed within the antenna.  Jerry Posluszny, Director of
Engineering, explained that, “This new 6 port MIMO antenna features quad-polarization:
vertical, horizontal, slant -45°, and slant +45° for state-of-the-art WiFi MIMO technology.”

According to Michael Berry, President of Mobile Mark, Inc., “The new 802.11ac networks are
designed for high density, high capacity usage.  To perform as they are intended to perform, the
antennas need to match the capabilities of the modems and provide the same 6x MIMO
coverage.  We are excited that our new Panel Antenna provides that kind of operation for a 6x
WiFi MIMO system.

The antenna offers 8 dBi gain on the 2.4 GHz band and 10 dBi gain on the 5 GHz band.  These
gain levels provide wireless coverage over a longer distance while still providing adequate
beamwidth coverage for easy installation and alignment.  The antenna covers 100° azimuth x 60°
elevation at 2.4 GHz and 40° azimuth x 45° elevation at 5 GHz. Alignment is also aided by the
swivel tilt mount that comes with the antenna.

The WiFi MIMO antenna gets high marks for its efficiency with a minimum front-to-back ratio
of 20 dB and 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 will fit in well with any 802.11ac WiFi MIMO installation.
