Improved Data Throughput and Reliability on Licensed and Unlicensed
PALM SPRINGS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2018--
PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical
TELecom solutions, announced at UTC Telecom today its 900 MHz
MIMO Yagi antennas with dual polarization. The antennas are designed for
use with MIMO or diversity radios in advanced Supervisory Control and
Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and other Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) applications. PCTEL’s dual polarized antenna technology improves
data throughput and reliability on both licensed and unlicensed spectrum.
“The Industrial IoT market’s rapid growth poses challenges for network
reliability. For some Industrial IoT sectors such as utilities, the
continuing rate of growth in wireless connections is putting significant
strain on limited wireless spectrum,” said Rishi Bhardwaj, Senior Vice
President and General Manager of PCTEL's Connected Solutions group.
“PCTEL’s Yagi MIMO antennas enable successful deployments of
next-generation process control and monitoring systems, even as spectrum
becomes more crowded.”
PCTEL’s MIMO Yagi antennas are designed to work seamlessly with the
latest narrowband radios under demanding real-world conditions. Their
high port-to-port isolation mitigates interference for optimal MIMO or
diversity performance. The antennas’ robust mechanical design can
withstand heavy ice, high wind and other harsh conditions. They are
manufactured using high strength 6061-T6 aluminum and anodized for
aesthetic appearance and corrosion resistance. In addition to the new
900 MHz model, MIMO Yagi antennas are available for 700 MHz and 800 MHz
PCTEL will display its MIMO Yagi antennas and along with other antenna
solutions for the energy and utility industries, May 8-11 at UTC Telecom
& Technology, booth #831 and May 16-17 at the ENTELEC Conference & Expo
in Houston, booth #312.
