4 New Antennas You Have to Know About

September 4, 2014 at 10:00 AM




For all of you wireless centric engineers, IT professionals, or network designers: are you caught up with the new wireless antenna technologies?


Perhaps you do have a general idea of what’s new. Or, maybe you just don’t have the time to look through a catalog or research new designs on the web.


Either way, it’s important to be up to date with new products and technologies in order to improve how wireless new technologies can better serve your applications.


In order to help save you time, we put together a roundup of what's new for wireless antennas. These products can be found right here at L-com.



120 Degree DAS Sectorial Antenna


First up: a new addition to the HyperLink DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) Series Sectorial Panel Antennas, the HG72712P-120.


These rugged all weather antennas are designed for years of reliable operation. They are largely known for helping wireless carriers to quickly increase capacity as well as deploy new spectrum in zoning challenged locations.


The HG72712P-120 features a single N-Female connector along with an internal combiner, which simplifies installation since only one coax cable is required to use the antenna. It also offers wide band operation so it supports many installation options and applications.



To put it simply, our 120 Degree DAS Sectorial antenna is streamlined and full feature and is a cost effective alternative to similar antennas that are available on the market.




DP Series Dual Polarity 2.4/5 GHz Flat Panel Antennas


Dual polarization and dual frequency. What more could you need?

These flat panel antennas combine vertical and horizontal polarization with high gain over a broadband frequency range in a single enclosure. We now offer two new models in this antenna family, the HG2458-10DP-6NF and HG2458-14DP-4NF.


Designed primarily for MIMO base station applications, the wide band design of these antennas has eliminated the need to purchase separate antennas for each frequency. They represent an innovative solution for many applications using the 2.4 GHz and the 4.9-5.8 GHz frequency bands. 


The HG2458-10DP-6NF and HG2458-14DP-4NF also feature a UV-resistant radome for all-weather operation.




Cross Polarized Flat Panel Antennas


Are you working in a polarization diversified system?


These antennas are fed via two N-Female ports, one for +45° polarized and one for -45° polarized signals, making them perfect for a variety of applications. They also double the wireless capacity for your network over the same channels due to their two independent antennas which are cross polarized.


Another great feature found with these all weather antennas is that they are lightweight yet durable. With a UV-stable, UL flame rated, white plastic radome these antennas can also be painted to match the room or building structure.


Lastly, you can select a cross polarized flat panel antenna with or without a tilt-and-swivel pole mount kit. These new antennas offer fantastic wireless capacity for a low price.




UR and MGUR Series Mini Mobile Omni directional Antennas


Okay, here are the last few products we’ll introduce in case you are still in search of the perfect antenna. We have added two new mini mobile NMO antennas to the HyperLink Wireless UR and MGUR series.


The first of the new series are the Dual Band 2.4/4.9-5.8 GHz Mini Mobile Mount antennas. The HG245803UR-NMOB and HG245803UR-NMOW are both compact 3 dBi Omni-directional antennas designed primarily for multipoint and mobile applications in the 2.4 and 4.9-5.8 GHz frequency bands. Measuring only 2.7 inches long, these antennas feature a standard TAD/NMO-type connection.

The second set of new products in this series is the 698-960/1710-2700 MHz Mini Mobile Mount DAS antennas. The HG72703UR-NMOB and HG72703UR-NMOW are 3 dBi Omni-directional antennas that have been specifically designed for use with DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems). They combine several different frequency bands to allow multi-user options. These compact antennas measure only 3.8 inches long and also feature a TAD/NMO type connection.

These antennas are also available as a kit with a magnetic mount, and are perfect for a variety of applications including industrial complexes, public transportation, service vehicles, mobile wireless applications, and more!
