November 4, 2019 Antenna Company

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - October 21, 2019 -- Antenna Company, a specialist in the design of high-performance embedded antennas, today announced production shipments of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) compatible MIMO antenna system designed to increase network capacity, extend range and reduce latency in enterprise networks.   The antenna system is comprised of 10 antennas in total, supporting a 4x4 5GHz + 4x4 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi configuration.   An additional 2.4GHz IoT/BLE (Bluetooth® low-energy) antenna is included to enable IoT use cases such as location tracking, along with a dedicated 2.4GHz/5GHz antenna for radio spectrum management.

Wi-Fi 6 enables several new features designed to support bandwidth intensive use cases in dense Wi-Fi deployments.   The antenna system supports concurrent operation of dual 5GHz radios, while achieving cross-pair antenna isolation of greater than 40 dB.   In the dual-radio mode, industry-leading over-the-air speeds of up to 5.2 Gbps can be achieved.

Antenna Company's Wi-Fi 6 enterprise antenna system also features:

  • Compact design that enables size reduction of enterprise access-points by 20% or more, without sacrificing antenna system performance
  • Low input impedance essential to achieve peak rates during 1024-QAM operation
  • Omni-directional pattern in the azimuth plane, ensuring uniform coverage
  • Robustness against antenna de-tuning from the system environment

"Antenna Company has optimized the performance of the antenna system to meet the demanding requirements of enterprise-class products", said company CEO, David Favreau.  "With our scalable design, OEMs can deploy enterprise access-points that offer 4x improvement over previous generation access-points."

The new Wi-Fi 6 antenna system is part of a family of commercially available solutions that also includes a 4x4 2.4/5GHz option for small-to-mid size enterprise deployments.

Visit Antenna Company at MWC19 in Los Angeles on October 22-24, 2019 at South Hall Stand, MR1477.   To schedule a meeting at MWC or to request more information, please contact Antenna Company at information@antennacompany.com
