The Colosseum MA850 5in1 antenna is a low profile, heavy-duty, fully IP69K waterproof external M2M antenna for use in worldwide telematics applications which require best in class LTE, Wi-Fi and GNSS performance. It is ideal for solutions that do not have space for mounting the larger Pantheon dome antennas but still require good efficiency and gain. This unique product, at only 57.4mm tall, delivers powerful worldwide 4G LTE MIMO antenna technology at 700MHz/800MHz/1700MHz/1800MHz/2600MHz, dual-band Wi-Fi MIMO, plus GPS-GLONASS-GALILEO-BeiDou for next-generation location accuracy. The LTE antenna also includes legacy 3G and 2G bands to enable fallback using the correct modems in areas where there is no 4G signal.
Typical Applications include:
- Bus Telematics
- Remote Asset and Pipeline Monitoring
- HD Video over LTE – First Responder and Emergency Services
- Automotive Vehicle Tracking and Telematics
LTE 4G applications demand high-speed data uplink and downlink. High efficiency and high gain MIMO antennas are necessary to achieve the required signal to noise ratio and throughput required to solve these challenges. Taoglas also takes care to have high isolation between the two MIMO antennas to prevent self-interference. Low loss cables are used to keep efficiency high over long cable lengths. In contrast, smaller MIMO antennas with poorer quality thinner cables will have much-reduced efficiency and isolation, which would lead to a large drop in system throughput or drops, and may indeed not make a system connection at all. The GPS-GLONASS-GALILEO-BeiDou active antenna has been carefully designed to work well on GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO and BeiDou L1 bands, leading to higher location accuracy and stability of tracking in urban environments.
