Two MIMO antennas launched by Taoglas suit M2M applications such as transportation, remote monitoring, business continuity and contingency planning. Called Genesis MA240 and MA241, the 2x2 LTE MIMO antennas support full global cellular 3G and 4G LTE coverage, with the MA240 also including GNSS.
 
They have the efficiency and gain necessary to achieve the signal-to-noise ratio and throughput to meet demands for high-speed data uplink and downlink. They meet the isolation and envelope correlation co-efficient (ECC) guidelines to increase MIMO radio throughput.
 
Also included are robust low-loss cables to keep the entire wireless system optimised for transmission, reception, throughput and speed.
 
“The Genesis antennas are an innovative solution for transportation and remote monitoring," said Dermot O’Shea, president of Taoglas in the USA. "They are ideally suited to vendors that can’t use a through-hole-mounted antenna for security reasons but still need to be connected to the 4G LTE network. They are also well-suited to the business continuity market for industry applications that can’t afford a minute of down time.”
 
The external, adhesive-mount antennas allow for easy installation such as inside a kiosk or ATM.
