PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI), a leader in simplifying wireless and site solutions for private and public networks, announced today at Cisco Live! the release of two new directional antennas: the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Enclosed Yagi MIMO Antennas for long range broadband wireless access applications. The new yagis provide high-speed directional WiFi coverage and optimized data throughput in a rugged, low profile housing. They are ideal for point-to-point installations in challenging environmental settings such as subways, highways, smart grids, oil and gas fields and wireless backhaul applications.
The Enclosed Yagi MIMO Antennas provide high gain performance for extended range. For improved data throughput rates, the 5 GHz model (WISP51583MIMO) supports 802.11ac/n 3x3 MIMO, while the 2.4 GHz model (WISP24252MIMO) supports 802.11n 2x2 MIMO. Both antennas also feature a weatherproof design, rugged UV resistant housing, and a robust mast mount to withstand high wind speeds.
“We are excited about the contribution to high-speed WiFi performance our new MIMO yagi antennas can bring to hard-to-reach places, such as tunnels and drilling sites,” said Jeff Miller, President of PCTEL Connected Solutions. “PCTEL will continue to build and design antenna products and site solutions that extend broadband wireless services to users in a wide range of applications,” added Miller.
PCTEL will be demonstrating the Enclosed Yagi MIMO Antennas along with other antenna and site solutions products at Booth #410 at Cisco Live!, May 20-22 in San Francisco.
