Guardian MA990 9-in-1 Small Form Factor Combination Antenna with 1*Dual-Band GNSS and 8*5G/4G MIMO
The Taoglas MA990 Guardian has been designed to be the smallest 9-in-1 combination antenna in the world. The MA990 Guardian is also the worlds first 9-in-1 antenna small form factor antenna with dual-band GNSS and high performance 5G/4G allowing it to be compatible with the next generation of modules and routers. The MA990 combines all 9 antenna elements in one low-profile heavy-duty, IP67 rated waterproof, adhesive mount external enclosure.
It comes with 1* Active dual-band GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo L1/L2 coverage, 8* 5G/4G Cellular MIMO. The MA990 has been designed as a low profile solution for IoT and Automotive applications where space is at a premium allowing it to be installed in the headliners of vehicles or on the back window of a vehicle.
This is an ideal external combination antenna solution that is used where drilling a hole through the roof of a vehicle or a metal panel for an external antenna is not feasible or desired and can be covertly installed via the adhesive pad supplied with the antenna.
Typical applications include:
– Passenger Bus / Rail / Air Applications.
– Automotive and Heavy Equipment Vehicle Tracking and Telematics
– HD Video over 5G/4G
– First Responder and Emergency Services
The MA990 Guardian has been specifically designed to hit certain 5G bands required for modules, for example MIMO 4 and MIMO are tuned from 600-6000MHz while MIMO 3 and MIMO 6 are tuned from 3000-6000MHz to cover high band 5G and C-band/CBRS applications. This data is shown below in the performance table, and it is recommended to use the suitable connections for your required frequency bands by reviewing this table before connecting the antenna to your device.
Taoglas also provides services to ensure optimum overall performance for your entire system by working closely with the customer to design in the best antenna and potential additional components for your system.
5G/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 ensure high isolation between the MIMO antennas to prevent self-interference. Low loss cables are used to keep efficiency high over longer cable lengths. In contrast, smaller MIMO antennas with poorer quality thin cables will have reduced efficiency and isolation, which would lead to a large drop in system throughput, increased incidences of signal drops, and may indeed not make a system connection at all.
Cable type and length, and connector types are fully customizable and the Guardian can also be customized for any variation of antennas below 9-in-1 and the addition of Wi-Fi/Single Band GNSS is also possible. Contact your regional Taoglas customer support team for more information.
