Parsec Technologies brings to market CAT 18 rugged in-vehicle antenna to meet LTE LAA specifications

Parsec Technologies Inc. announced on Tuesday that it will bring to market rugged antenna to meet the LTE LAA specifications for Public Safety, Gigabit LTE, and 5G ready applications.

Parsec’s Doberman antenna series are omnidirectional, ruggedized, high performance antennas covering  cellular frequencies from 600MHz to 6GHz that support 256 QAM. It is the first antenna to meet the LTE LAA (Licensed Assisted Access) specifications as well as all common North American LTE bands with high gain and high efficiency.  

The Doberman series antennas effortlessly expand across Bands 12, 14, 66, and 71 in addition to the CBRS Bands 42, 43 and 48 as well as the unlicensed bands in the 5GHz spectrum allowing for the fastest speeds possible today while also providing a path to easily upgrade to 5G in the future.

Parsec’s Doberman antenna series antennas pair with and support current 4G LTE radios as well as the new Gigabit-Class LTE router solutions for fast, reliable access to the new public safety network, including Band 14.

The Doberman series of antennas by Parsec are optimized to work specifically with current 4G LTE routers and new in-vehicle and in-building routers for Gigabit-Class LTE and 5G Ready networks.  Doberman series antennas operate using MIMO LTE, MIMO Wi-Fi and precision GPS antennas.

Parsec’s Doberman series antennas cover LTE frequency bands ranging from 617-894MHz, 1695-2700MHz, 3300-3800MHz, and 5150-5850MHz through MIMO LTE antennas.  These frequency bands cover all current 4G LTE bands, as well as the bands on the new public safety network and on the CBRS bands. MIMO Wi-Fi antennas within the Doberman series support Wi-Fi frequencies ranging from 2400-2483.5MHz and 4900-5900MHz. The Doberman operates as an omnidirectional antenna with 85 percent efficiency, with inclusion of precision GPS.  

Configurable as a 6-in-1, 5-in-1, 4-in-1, 3-in-1, or 2-in-1 antenna, the Doberman can be used together with other Doberman configurations to achieve 4X4 MIMO with dual carrier support.  The Doberman and other Parsec antennas in the PRO Series of high performance, ruggedized antennas are IP67 rated and highly configurable to meet the needs of a wide range possible solutions.  

“Every antenna in the Parsec PRO Series is high performance and ruggedized, to support uninterrupted communications for our first responders and critical communications infrastructure applications,” says Michael A. Neenan, CEO of Parsec.  “Parsec’s latest high performance antenna is a best in class performer for Band 14 and LAA applications due to its robust design with high gain and high efficiency”.
