Fairview Microwave offers innovative IoT multiband combination antennas, establishing a new industry standard for vehicle, fleet and base station connectivity.

Developed to serve the core of reliable mobile networks, these antennas have elements that cover 4G, 5G, Wi-Fi and GPS bands, all unified under a single radome. This advancement is notably essential for critical service providers such as emergency teams, first responders and fleet management. By enabling a steadfast link between moving vehicles and dispatch centres, the company ensures seamless communication even in the most demanding scenarios.

The antennas come furnished with FAKRA and SMA connectors with 17' cable leads, making installations and connectivity more efficient. An IP69K rating validates its indoor/outdoor compatibility, providing durability and resilience against tough environmental conditions. Also, its MIMO capabilities illustrate a superior data transmission rate, and the UV-stabilised ABS construction ensures longevity, obtainable in black and white to cater to diverse aesthetic preferences.

The benefits of opting for the company's IoT combination antennas are manifold. With dedicated ports for 4G/5G, Wi-Fi and GPS (supporting up to ten leads), network configurations become versatile and robust. The inclusion of GPS/GNSS with an LNA, amplified by a 26dB gain, provides optimal location tracking and precise navigational support. Moreover, the indoor/outdoor IP69K rating is a testimony to its durability and adaptability.

"These IoT combination antennas fortify our commitment to powering the next generation of mobile network solutions," said product line manager Kevin Hietpas. "Our aim has always been to ensure unhindered communication, especially for those on whom countless lives depend, such as first responders and emergency service providers. This product echoes that sentiment."
