World's Thinnest & Smallest Ceiling Mount Wideband Antennas for IoT

Laird Technologies has introduced what they claim to be the mobile industry’s thinnest, smallest ceiling- or wall-mounted wideband antenna to meet the design needs of office and apartment buildings, hotels, airports, and other large coverage areas.

The new CFS Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Ultra-Low profile antennas are just seven millimeters thick (about half the thickness of a smartphone) and improve in-building wireless telecommunications by deliver consistent, reliable Internet connectivity to further enable the Internet of Things (IoT). These antennas require less wall/ceiling space, making them ideal for in-building installations as they are less visible on walls or ceiling panels and can even be hidden behind wall pictures. This patent-pending innovation radiates an indoor signal up to 20 percent more efficiently than other in-building Distributed Antenna System (DAS) antennas on the market today.

Industry experts forecast that by 2020, more than 23 billion “things” globally will be connected to the Internet, and about 40 percent of them will be used for business, industrial, healthcare, and other sectors for the Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT). Furthermore, the majority of EIoT mobile data traffic will be generated indoors at offices, hotels, hospitals, universities, shopping malls, and multi-tenant, multi-use buildings. Antennas like these will be needed to enable IoT.

The new CFS Series Low PIM Ultra-Low Profile antennas provide pattern coverage optimized for indoor requirements at 600 to 960 MHz, and 1690 to 3800 MHz supporting global GSM, DCS, UMTS, AWS-3, and 3G/4G-LTE/WiMAX frequency bands. Click here to learn more.
