World’s First 2-in-1 ‘Shot-Glass’ MIMO LTE Antenna

Airgain has released the first ‘shot-glass’ MIMO LTE antenna, delivering leading performance in a significantly smaller footprint than competitive solutions.

The OptumX builds on Airgain’s antenna design expertise to deliver a high-performance, ultra-wide-band dual-LTE MIMO solution in the small, robust form-factor, commonly referred to as a ‘shot-glass’ or ‘salt and pepper shaker’ antenna. The OptumX utilizes patent pending technology to enable dual MIMO antennas to operate in very close proximity within the single enclosure, overcoming key technical hurdles including MIMO antenna isolation. The OptumX is tailored to the needs of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications with often restricted exterior mounting options and a need to keep installation costs to a minimum. IIoT and M2M solutions have previously been required to choose between the increased cost of using two separate antennas, or to use large and often unsightly antennas designed for different uses.

As a shock-resistant, low-profile antenna with a smaller footprint than competitive solutions and a strong, bolt-mount base, the OptumX is built to meet the specific needs of IIoT and M2M users, providing cost-effective high-performance connectivity for IIoT and M2M applications. The OptumX is designed to blend in, but is also built to Airgain’s exacting standards, providing exceptional protection against UV and natural hazards and helping ensure reliable operation.

The OptumX antenna can be ordered in either black or white and will be available in November. Click here for more information.
