Laird Unveils Industry's Thinnest, Smallest Low PIM MIMO iDAS Antenna

Laird has unveiled its newest range of wideband iDAS antennas, which dramatically improve in-building wireless connectivity. They also are one of the thinnest, smallest Low PIM MIMO ceiling mounted wideband antennas that meet the design needs of office and apartment buildings, hotels, airports, and other large coverage areas.

Laird's new CFD Ultra Low Profile Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM) antenna is just seven millimeters thick, or about the thickness of a smartphone providing an ultra-low profile antenna that provides buildings with an inconspicuous yet high performance antenna for enhanced wireless connectivity.

MIMO is being used increasingly in many high data rate technologies including indoor wireless and cellular technologies to provide improved levels of coverage and data throughput. Essentially the CFD Ultra Low Profile MIMO Low PIM antenna employs multiple antennas on the receiver and transmitter to mitigate the multi-path effects that always exist to increase data throughput in the presence of interference.

The patent-pending CFD indoor antenna improves in-building wireless telecommunications and increases capacity delivering consistent, reliable Internet connectivity, further enabling the Internet of Things (IoT).

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. The rising demand for wireless connectivity requires high performance in-building antennas that can be placed anywhere without being obtrusive.

The new CFD Ultra-Low Profile MIMO Low PIM antenna provides pattern coverage optimized for indoor requirements at 698 - 960 MHz, and 1350 - 4000 MHz supporting LTE, AWS-3, WCS and CBRS 3.5 GHz global frequency bands. The CFD Low PIM MIMO Multi-port indoor antenna delivers superior performance, robust reliability and highly competitive market pricing with an MSRP of $73.15 per unit. The CFD is available and currently shipping. For more information, click here.
