5G/CBRS-ready ceiling mount antenna offers excellent performance

06-06-2019 | Laird | Subs & Systems

Laird Connectivity has released the CMD69423P, an indoor MIMO ceiling mount antenna, fitting for 5G deployments, that produces best-in-class performance with low-profile aesthetics.

Employing patent-pending technology, the device is a two-port MIMO, omnidirectional, ceiling mount antenna that runs between 698-960MHz and 1300-4200MHz. The antenna's elements are created with linear, vertical and horizontal components, and optimised to radiate a particularly-shaped pattern for best-in-class performance when fitted on a ceiling.

Producing reliable and robust performance without losing aesthetics, the antenna is excellent for indoor environments such as business offices, medical facilities, retail malls, train stations, bus terminals, or any indoor application where wide-angle coverage is required for wireless deployment.

"The CMD69423P's multi-port functionality saves time and money, as fewer antennas are needed to provide excellent coverage and throughput," says Gordon Barber, Laird Connectivity's director of product management. "This is because the antenna has been designed for robust radiation performance, including coverage and low correlation between ports."

With its wide bandwidth, the device covers CBRS and 5G spectrum to 4200MHz. The antenna is created with a low-profile, aesthetically-neutral housing, full plenum rating, Low PIM, and low port-port correlation, assuring optimal MIMO performance.
