WLAN Prestta Antennas for Implementation in Gateways with MIMO Technology

This paper presents a low-cost MIMO antenna solution for gateways with embedded WLAN Prestta antennas. These antennas are designed using Ethertronics patented IMD (Isolated Magnetic Dipole™) technology, which provides high isolation and excellent performance for its small size. Ethertronics’ WLAN Prestta™ antennas are evaluated and they equal or improve the antenna performance and significantly reduce the volume employed compared to other vendors’ antennas. This solution also can be applied to other similar devices, such as routers and access points.
