The MAT.500.A embedded antenna board combines LTE MIMO antennas, Wi-Fi MIMO antennas, plus GPS/GLONASS and Iridium® 1621MHz antennas. It can be used as a reference design or actual embedded antenna for telematics devices in applications such as fleet management, asset tracking, and security/surveillance. The board comes with six IPEX connectors and 1.37mm coax cables for LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS/GLONASS and Iridium 1621MHz.
- High speed data links with a need for satellite communication as a fallback
- Automotive and Heavy Equipment Vehicle Tracking and Telematics
- Remote Asset and Pipeline Monitoring
- HD Video over LTE
- First Responder and Emergency Services
- Global data communications/IoT
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. The GPS-GLONASS the passive antenna receives efficiently on all two bands, leading to higher location accuracy and stability of tracking in urban environments. The unique omnidirectional Wi-Fi antennas provide high efficiency and high isolation between antenna elements in a heavy-duty low profile compact structure, delivering powerful MIMO antenna technology for Wi-Fi 802.11n and emerging 802.11ac.
Finally, a low axial ratio 1621MHz Antenna is also embedded, providing connectivity for the Iridium satellite system, enabling global coverage, and back-up in case of cellular network failure. Cable length and connector types are customizable. Contact your regional Taoglas sales office for support.
