Indoor & Urban M2M Environments

This low gain 3dBi Telstra Next-G antenna is designed for operation of cellular devices in highly multipath environments, such as indoor and urban environments. The wide vertical and omnidirectional horizontal radiation patterns allow your receiver to pick up heavily varied transmission paths. Buildings, walls, and other obstructions create a multipath propagation environment - transmissions that bounce off walls or trees at an acute angle cause signal echos. Having travelled a further distance than a straight line transmission these signals are delayed, and to a simple receiver would be nothing more than interference. However thanks to clever technology used in cellular communications, multipath signals can recovered by your modem's RAKE combiner. A RAKE receiver consists of a series of sub-radios which read the incoming signal at different delay periods (typically one chip in WCDMA) and then combined to result in a higher quality signal. Roof mount antennas are recommended by system operators, mobile manufacturers and system designers as they provide the strongest reception and most reliable performance of any cellular mobile antenna. At the heart of each RFI SW1486 antenna is the MB14 base. The base (SW1486) is intricately constructed, much like a coaxial connector. The precisely controlled termination is reliable electrically and mechanically provides a superb match resulting in a broad bandwidth.
