As Ofcom announces its auction plans for the wireless spectrum designated for 4G services such as high-speed mobile broadband access, short-range radio device specialist, Low Power Radio Solutions, has announced the introduction of the ARW-2400-2700-10 directional antenna for WiMax and WiFi applications.
Operating in the 2.4-2.7GHz frequency band, the ARW-2400-2700-10 antenna meets the existing requirements of wireless communications infrastructure and 3G communications operators and is also designed to meet the needs of 4G systems as they become available from 2014.
WiMax is the latest generation of wireless broadband and offers improvements in stability and reliability over existing systems. Major deployment of WiMax is set to roll out in the UK once Ofcom make available the 2.6GHz spectrum and operators and infrastructure vendors are gearing up to take advantage of the improvements it will offer users.
Developments taking place in the WiMax 2.4-2.7GHz frequency band include systems intended to expand network capacity, lower operating costs, reduce energy consumption and increase connectivity by deploying a mesh of multi-frequency, multi-standard low power communications devices which can be mounted on buildings, poles or wherever there is power and a broadband connection. The LPRS ARW-2400-2700-10 antenna has a frequency range of 2400 – 2700MHz, has an operating temperature range of -40C – +60C, measures 140mm x 120mm x 20mm and weighs just 600gm, says the company.
John Sharples, managing director of LPRS, said: ”This new antenna gives our customers the opportunity to develop WiMax & WiFi systems and be ready for the release of the required wireless spectrum for 4G services. We can offer very competitive pricing to support OEM sales when installations begin.”More news from LPRS
