PCTEL announces its CBRS Wi-Fi-based omnidirectional antennas

PCTEL Inc. has added several new fully sealed omnidirectional antennas to its wireless enterprise and small cell antenna offerings. New models include two new CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) antennas for spectrum sharing applications, and two new high gain Wi-Fi omnidirectional antennas for enterprise and industrial Wi-Fi networks.

PCTEL’s engineers worked closely with major small cell and enterprise Wi-Fi OEMs to develop the new antennas. All four models are IP67 rated for outdoor applications and deliver exceptional performance under harsh environmental conditions.

The Wi-Fi antennas provide 9 dBi high gain performance with wideband coverage in all 2.4 GHz (MHO24007NMIP) or 5 GHz (MHO59009NMIP) bands. The CBRS antennas (BOA34006N series) are available with N Female or N Male termination options.

PCTEL offers precision antennas are deployed in small cells, enterprise Wi-Fi access points, fleet management and transit systems, and in equipment and devices for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The company offers in-house design, testing, radio integration, and manufacturing capabilities for customers.

PCTEL’s test and measurement tools improve the performance of wireless networks globally, with a focus on LTE, public safety, and emerging 5G technologies. Network operators, neutral hosts, and equipment manufacturers rely on scanning receivers and testing solutions to analyze, design, and optimize their networks.

“PCTEL’s CBRS antennas will enable small cells to leverage shared spectrum to deliver greater throughput for both public and private LTE networks,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL’s Connected Solutions group. “Our extensive laboratory and testing facilities in the United States and China enable PCTEL to deliver innovative antennas and wireless products that meet the strict quality and performance standards of the world’s leading wireless carriers, equipment manufacturers, and internet service providers,” added Bharadwaj.
