Proxicast Introduces Two New 4G and LTE Mobile Cellular Antennas
Pittsburgh, PA. (April 30, 2012) – Proxicast (www.proxicast.com)
Proxicast, manufacturer of the LAN-Cell and PocketPORT families of 3G/4G cellular routers and high-quality cellular accessories, today announces the addition of two new 4G/LTE antennas to its existing line of cellular antennas. These antennas are designed to meet the needs of the growing number of 4G devices which require higher-gain external antennas for applications such as machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, remote monitoring, video surveillance, vehicular tracking, and ATM/Vending machines.
The Proxicast 3G/4G Universal Blade (Part Number ANT-120-002) is a unique cellular dipole antenna that provides medium-gain on all 2G/3G (CDMA / GSM), and 4G (LTE / HSPA+) frequency bands currently in use by cellular network operators worldwide (698-960 / 1710-2170 / 2500-2700 MHz). The flat “blade-shaped” 3G/4G Universal Blade antenna is 5.12 inch (130 mm) long and has an omni-directional radiation pattern that delivers up to 3. 5 dBi of gain with a built-in ground-plane. The antenna swivels 90° and rotates 360° for flexibility when positioning for maximum signal reception and has an integrated SMA male plug connector which mates with the SMA female jack on LAN-Cell and PocketPORT pigtails and many other popular cellular modems and routers. This antenna is an excellent general purpose cellular antenna suitable for any mobile or stationary application.
The Proxicast (Part Number ANT-120-005) is a high-gain whip-style 4G/LTE-only antenna. The Long Aerial is the highest gain whip-style omni LTE antenna on the market today. The Long Aerial is a 10.24 inch (260 mm) omni-directional dipole antenna that provides 5 dBi of gain on the LTE / AWS frequencies (700-800 / 1700-1800 / 2100-2200 MHz) used by U.S. and Canadian cellular carriers such as Verizon Wireless, AT&T Wireless, T Mobile, Rogers, Bell Mobility and Telus. The polycarbonate antenna swivels 90° and rotates 360° for optimal positioning and maximum signal reception and has an integrated SMA male plug connector and ground-plane. This antenna is a smart choice for mobile or stationary applications where extra gain is required.
Both antennas can be connected to the Proxicast Magnetic Antenna Base (Part Number ANT-120-MAG) which is a 2 inch (51 mm) diameter magnetic antenna base with an SMA female jack on top. Its strong magnet and durable metal construction makes it suitable for mobile vehicle mounting applications, stationary applications or even desktop use. The base also features 72 inches (1830 mm) low-loss coax lead (HPP100) with an SMA male plug.
Both antennas are excellent choices for 3G/4G modems and 3G/4G routers that are being used for mobile and stationary applications such as:
- Sales & Service Fleets
- Commercial Transportation
- Cars, Buses, Limos & RVs
- Delivery & Courier Vehicles
- Boats & Marine Vessels
- Mobile WiFi Hotspots
- Police, Fire & Emergency Vehicles
- Mobile Security & Surveillance
- Military & Defense Applications
- Remote Monitoring, Telemetry, SCADA & AMR
- Remote Control of PLCs and Industrial Controls
- Video Surveillance & Security Applications
- Temporary Off-Site Work & Trade Shows
- Vending, Point-of-Sale (POS) & ATM Machines
- Backup For Wired Internet and Alarm Connections
- Traffic Monitoring & Control
- Digital Signage, Electronic Billboards & Signs
- Homeland Security & Disaster Recovery
