Antenna Company, a specialist in the design of high-performance embedded antennas, has announced production shipments of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) compatible MIMO antenna system, designed to increase network capacity, extend range and reduce latency in enterprise networks. The antenna system is comprised of ten antennas in total, supporting a 4×4 5GHz + 4×4 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi configuration. An additional 2.4GHz IoT/BLE (Bluetooth low-energy) antenna is included to enable IoT use cases such as location tracking, along with a dedicated 2.4GHz/5GHz antenna for radio spectrum management.
Wi-Fi 6 enables several new features designed to support bandwidth intensive use cases in dense Wi-Fi deployments. The antenna system supports concurrent operation of dual 5GHz radios, while achieving cross-pair antenna isolation of greater than 40 dB. In the dual-radio mode, industry-leading over-the-air speeds of up to 5.2 Gbps can be achieved.
“Antenna Company has optimised the performance of the antenna system to meet the demanding requirements of enterprise-class products”, said company CEO, David Favreau. “With our scalable design, OEMs can deploy enterprise access-points that offer four times improvement over previous generation access-points.”
