Multi-band MIMO Coach Antennas for 802.11ac Permanent Mount Applications

PCTEL has released a new 802.11ac MIMO Antenna for fleet, rail, mass transit, public safety, and M2M applications. The dual-band, low profile antenna enables data-intensive machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, even when multiple devices in the area are using Wi-Fi. The compact and durable housing makes it suitable for both outdoor and indoor installations or mobile fleet management installations. The antenna can be used for multiple applications such as power distribution monitoring for utilities, fleet connectivity for public safety as well as video monitoring for secure facilities.

The Coach antenna features six dual-band antenna ports that support simultaneous 3x3 MIMO on both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands for faster and less complex network field installations. The antenna’s optimized multi-port isolation reduces interference between multiple wireless signals in MIMO systems for maximum data throughput. The PCTEL Coach antennas deliver multi-band wireless connectivity wherever it’s needed and are available in a variety of configuration options to support the leading MIMO radio manufacturers.

PCTEL is demonstrating the 802.11ac 6-port Coach antenna along with other antenna solutions for IoT and fleet management applications at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit from May 15 – 17, 2017 at Montreal, Canada.

The Coach antenna will be available for sale in late June 2017 in black or white housing options. Custom colors will also be available for special projects. Click here for more information.
