The Taoglas MA9917.A Guardian X has been designed to combine a high number of antenna combinations in one enclosure. The MA9917.A is a 17-in-1 combination antenna that combines all 17 antenna elements in one low-profile heavy-duty, IP67 rated waterproof, adhesive mount external enclosure. The MA9917.A comes with 1* Active GPS/GLONASS/Galileo, 8* 5G/4G Cellular MIMO (600-6000MHz), 8* Wi-Fi 6 MIMO (2.4/5.1-7.125GHz) as standard. The MA9917.A has been designed as a low profile solution for IoT and Automotive applications where space is at a premium.
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.
The MA9917 also operates at Band 71, the newly established 5G band at 600MHz.
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
– M2M Applications/IoT
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 GuardianX can also be customized for any variation of antennas below 17-in-1. Contact your regional Taoglas customer support team for more information.
