TE Introduces New Antennas for 5G, NB-IoT and LTE-M Applications

TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced new antennas for 5G, NB-IoT, and LTE-M applications. These antennas have been designed to operate over a wide frequency range from 600 MHz to 6 GHz. The growth of cellular IoT devices drives the market demand for products for 5G and cellular low-power wide-area networks (LPWAN). NB-IoT and LTE-M are LPWAN radio technology standards with the former one focusing on indoor, low-cost, long battery life and high-density connection, and the latter one concentrating on machine-to-machine communication. Optimized performance of 5G and cellular LPWAN connection depends on wide frequency bands and reliable RF performance, which TE's antennas can support.

These new antennas introduced by TE for 5G, NB-IoT and LTE-M can provide a variety of band solutions ranging from 600 MHz to 6 GHz. Depending on their system architecture, customers can choose antennas with different mounting types (e.g. board mount, embedded, external or terminal antenna), cable lengths, and connector options. These antennas can be easily integrated to end devices since no tuning is needed and TE can offer service for embedding and even complex multiple antennas assemblies.

5G will bring 10x to 100x improvement over the existing 4G LTE. Cellular LPWAN is important to make life intelligently connected. TE is accelerating the pace along with market trends, introducing new reliable antennas to the market, offering customers quick-to-market solutions while delivering optimal performance to create a safer and connected future even in the face of harsh environments.
