Multi-Band LTE/Wi-Fi/GNSS antenna with centimetre profile for IoT

By Nick Flaherty

PCTEL has launched a multi-band LTE/Wi-Fi/GNSS antenna with a sub-inch profile for IoT, precision agriculture and public safety applications. 

The rugged 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. 

“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,” he said.

The ruggedized ultra-low profile housing is less than 25mm and the GNSMB-COV 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.
